Better than I thought

I quite liked Big Nothing. I expected more of a straight comedy, having heard very little about it, but it was more of a black-comedy/action with elements of murder mystery thrown in. Quite a nice blend when you see it.

As for the actors, I think the casting was well done, though seeing Simon Pegg play an American was a bit weird. David Schwimmer also made a good attempt of a non-Ro... read more

To be honest, since it is rather obscure, I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since I have a weak spot for Simon Pegg, I thought I might as well check it out. Eventually, even though it was nothing really amazing, I thought it was not bad at all. Above all, I really loved the introduction. Indeed, David Schwimmer basically gets a new job at your average call-center and he get... read more

"Mallikkaasti rullaava mustakomedia, joka osaa yllättää ovelilla käänteillä, ei välttämättä koko leffan ajan mut alkupuoliskon ainakin."

“To be honest, since it is rather obscure, I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since I have a weak spot for Simon Pegg, I thought I might as well check it out. Eventually, even though it was nothing really amazing, I thought it was not bad at all. Above all, I really loved the introduction. Indeed, David Schwimmer basically gets a new job at your average call-center and he gets his training done by Simon Pegg. Well, the couple of scenes that followed after that were the most convincing (and hilarious) bits I have ever seen dealing with a call-center. I mean, if you, like me, ever had any work experience in this environment, you really need to see this movie because it was just pitch-perfect. Unfortunately, they spent just 5 or 10 minutes there and the rest of the movie” read more

"Watched 18.9 ---------- Charlie Wood (Frendeistä tuttu David Schwimmer) on perheenisä ja poliisin vaimo, joka päättää hankkia työn asiakaspalvelusta. Hän saa työkaverikseen Gus Dickinsonin (Simon Pegg), jonka talous on Charlien tapaan varsin huonossa jamassa. Niinpä kaksikko ja väkisin mukaan suunnitelmiin änkevä Josie McBroom (Alice Eve) päättävät kiristää muuan pastorilta sievoisen summan käteistä käyttäen miehen laittomia ja perverssejä harrastuksia verukkeena.

“I quite liked Big Nothing. I expected more of a straight comedy, having heard very little about it, but it was more of a black-comedy/action with elements of murder mystery thrown in. Quite a nice blend when you see it.

As for the actors, I think the casting was well done, though seeing Simon Pegg play an American was a bit weird. David Schwimmer also made a good attempt of a non-Ross role, but with an attachment lasting so long you can’t help but be reminded of it every now and then. I think that Pegg brought to the film something akin to that of Spaced or (the later) Hot Fuzz, so it is not only Schwimmer’s character association that shows at times.

The storyline generally worked quite well for me, turning more into a murder mystery into the latter half of the film” read more
