I love movies. I love writing about them. Hope you like reading what I write.
Romantic Comedies can be good. They just have to be more than patronising, unrealistic garbage. Maybe this film can rise above that.
The Big Sick tells the true story of the relationship between comedian Kumail Nanjiani (whose played by himself) and Emily Gordon (oddly not played by herself). Their relationship gets pretty rocky when their cultures clash and when she suddenly falls into a coma.
This whole film plays out like some pretty great stand-up material. There is a lot of truth here and a lot of laughs.
Honestly, this is probably the funniest film of the year. This script is written by the real life main characters, Kumail and Emily. It is veritably bubbling with sarcasm, jokes and heart.
I would complain about the ending being a little unbelievable, but then again, it did apparently happen.
This is like a vintage Woody Allen picture, except with a lot less cynicism, but with no lest honesty.
Sorry that this review is so short. Just… uh… take your girlfriend I guess.
Recommended Scenario: Didn’t you hear me? It’s a good date movie.
