The Big Sick (2017) - Full Movie Review - ;English - Hollywood


The Best romantic comedies of the Year: The Big Sick

Based on the real-life courtship between Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon, THE BIG SICK tells the story of Pakistan-born aspiring comedian Kumail (Nanjiani), who connects with grad student Emily (Kazan) after one of his standup sets. However, what they thought would be just a one-night stand blossoms into the real thing, which complicates the life that is expected of Kumail by his traditional Muslim parents.

When Emily is beset with a mystery illness, it forces Kumail to navigate the medical crisis with her parents, Beth and Terry (Holly Hunter and Ray Romano) who he's never met, while dealing with the emotional tug-of-war between his family and his heart. THE BIG SICK is directed by Michael Showalter (HELLO MY NAME IS DORIS) and producer by Judd Apatow (TRAINWRECK, THIS IS 40) and Barry Mendel (TRAINWRECK, THE ROYAL TENENBAUMS).

The Big Sick succeeds as both a self-reflective work of art for Nanjiani (as well as the real Emily Gordon) and a terrific romantic comedy – demonstrating that the genre is capable of adapting to the changes in the moviemaking climate since its heyday back in the 1990s and 2000s especially (when many of the films that directly influenced Nanjiani and Gordon were released).

The Big Sick is also the rare indie summer movie offering that can be recommended to both mainstream audiences and those who tend to prefer the arthouse during the hottest time of the year. Chances are good that both those crowds will fall in love with this one. Readmore @ ScreenRant
