More Review
Huievest Instead, you get a movie that's enjoyable enough, but leaves you feeling like it could have been much, much more.
ThedevilChoose When a movie has you begging for it to end not even half way through it's pure crap. We've all seen this movie and this characters millions of times, nothing new in it. Don't waste your time.
Senteur As somebody who had not heard any of this before, it became a curious phenomenon to sit and watch a film and slowly have the realities begin to click into place.
Billy Ollie Through painfully honest and emotional moments, the movie becomes irresistibly relatable
ionutnecula I decided to watch this film on a late Saturday night. I picked it because I knew Kumajl Nanjiani from Silicon Valley, and I was bored and felt like watching a comedy (I didn't really know what the film was about). And, oh boy, was I in for a surprise. The comedic aspect was there, but the emotional side was a total surprise for me. Even though the film is only loosely based on a true story, it felt very realistic and I found it easy to connect with the protagonist (Kumail Nanjiani can play dramatic roles, too! Well, it is explainable because he was almost reliving some tragic moments and feelings he had been through before). I found it particularly amusing when "Up" was mentioned because at some point the film seemed to carry an emotional weight which I could only compare with the very same movie. Overall, I was very positively impressed with "The Big Sick" and I liked it. Totally unexpected and I understand all the hype about it now! I would even go as far as saying that it is a must-see!
im-sohrabi Well a good movie have to mentioned small little sides and "The Bid Sick" do that very well. You feel happy when you look at clothes, watch people eating and see a group of youngs do stand-up comedy. After all the collection of komail from the period of hospital was fantastic.
ns-63833 From start to finish The Big Sick delivers laughs and emotion that draws you in further and further until you fall in love with these characters.
Ali Ahmad This movie was good. I like how kumail put humour in everything!
