A Big winner all-round

One of the most unexpected movie-going delights of 2017, The Big Sick is much more than just another fluffy Hollywood romantic comedy. Written by Kumail Nanjiani and his wife Emily V. Gordon, the movie is loosely based on the true story of their courtship and romance, eschewing forced sentiment and broad jokes to construct an effective dramedy with cross-cultural themes, an appealing cast, big lau... read more

Sometimes truth is infinitely stranger than fiction. Case in point, look at the romantic comedy interrupted that is The Big Sick. Loosely based on the real life courtship between co-writers Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon, The Big Sick is a thoughtful examination of the ties that bind us together, be they familial or chosen.   We begin in the normal romantic comedy formula: boy (Nanjiani p... read more

20 Favorite Movies From 2017 (20 movies items)

" Emily: I didn't heckle you, just woo-hoo'd you. It's supportive. Kumail: Okay, that's a common misconception. Yelling anything at a comedian is considered heckling. Heckling doesn't have to be negative. Emily: So, if I... if I yelled out like... *you're amazing in bed*, that'd be a heckle? Kumail: Yeah. It would be an accurate heckle."

“Sometimes truth is infinitely stranger than fiction. Case in point, look at the romantic comedy interrupted that is The Big Sick. Loosely based on the real life courtship between co-writers Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon, The Big Sick is a thoughtful examination of the ties that bind us together, be they familial or chosen.   We begin in the normal romantic comedy formula: boy (Nanjiani playing a variation of himself) meets-cute with girl (Zoe Kazan), complications arise first in the form of different backgrounds then in the form of a medically induced coma, an action that causes those looking for a routine rom-com payout to get a serious case of blue balls. Into this emotional turbulence comes the girl’s parents, and The Big Sick takes us into more dramatic and pricklier territ” read more

A Big winner all-round

“One of the most unexpected movie-going delights of 2017, The Big Sick is much more than just another fluffy Hollywood romantic comedy. Written by Kumail Nanjiani and his wife Emily V. Gordon, the movie is loosely based on the true story of their courtship and romance, eschewing forced sentiment and broad jokes to construct an effective dramedy with cross-cultural themes, an appealing cast, big laughs and heart aplenty. The movie was co-produced by the perpetually-busy Judd Apatow, who pushed Nanjiani to write the screenplay after hearing the real-life story on a podcast. And thank goodness it all worked out, as the autobiographical tale serves as the perfect basis for an affecting and amusing rom-com, one of the best that the genre has seen for some time.
