Critic Reviews for The Big Sick
...a universality that should prove broad enough for even the most close-minded of viewers...
After a slow start, the film gradually accumulates funny and surprising details, many of them surely drawn directly from life.
Watching this Judd Apatow-produced romcom is like clicking on a for-real YouTube clip of a kitten juggling spoons. Cute. Clever. No wonder The Big Sick has gone viral.
Audience Reviews for The Big Sick
What starts like a fresh take on the old "When Harry met Sally" premise soon gets a pretty dramatic and unexpected twist, and ultimately turns out to be based on true events. Every minute in between is funny, sad and very true. Likable, realistic characters and a great script make this a romantic comedy highlight of recent years, while tackling cultural differences and low key racism at the same time. Outstanding.
A little long, but good movie. Zoe Kazan is great. I have never not liked her in a movie.
If there is something that no one can blame this film from being is predictable, since it always finds ways to surprise us with its maturity and sincerity, benefiting from solid performances and a very fine balance between heart and humor to tell us this real-life story.
