Critic Reviews for Bigger

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (3)

As relatively handsomely mounted as this movie is, it's also kind of a shambles.

October 12, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Without a sturdier script featuring fully dimensional characters... the performances prove to be as unconvincing as their ethnic accents and period wigs.

A missed opportunity, the kind of yo-yo-ing highlights version of a life that seems less examined than expedited.

Top Critic

the film follows the biopic formula so closely that it loses its identity in the process.

December 16, 2018 | Rating: F | Full Review…

The Weiders denounced drinking and espoused protein shakes, but the film suggests you can never have too much cheese.

October 12, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Overly sanitized biopic tackles bigotry; mild violence.

Audience Reviews for Bigger

The story of the brothers Weider, and how they brought nutrition and bodybuilding into mainstream culture is given a typically dry biopic rendering with all the excitement of watching a salad wilt. A few cast members struggle to break the monotony of simplistic writing, cardboard characterization's and stagnant direction but are eventually overwhelmed by the tsunami of no life.
