I really liked this movie. It had everything I wanted: good dialogues, believable characters, a romance and some sad stuff as well. But still very humoristic and uplifting. It was a bit long in the end, but I was surprised that it was based on a true love story. Kumail is just such a lovable guy. I'm going to check out some of his shows.

Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon (she's played by the delightful Zoe Kazan) put their story to the big screen in The Big Sick, an indie romcom based on true events about a Pakistani stand-up who dares fall in love with a white girl, who spends much of the movie in a medically-induced coma due to a mysterious infection while Kumail is forced to deal with her parents. To say this is a comedy with heart is obvious, but better than that, it's a comedy with TRUTH. In fact, the comedy almost never feels artificial and "written"; it's what happens when funny people (and natural straight men and women) interact, delivered naturalistically, in a plot that also feels very real. I dare say Ray Romano (as Emily's dad) has never been in anything this good, though Holly Hunter (as her mom) is great in this too. Lots of laughs in the audience, and none of them for anything stupid. I see a lot of comedians doing autobiographical movies lately, and if they're going to be this smart, funny, charming and relevant, I'm going to be a booster for the subgenre.

The Big Sick is a strange title for a pleasant romantic comedy, but there it is. While it's ultimately a romantic comedy, the characters in love are only just okay in terms of chemistry and like-ability. The whole experience is akin to a nice warm bowl of average but not unpleasant soup. Consistent, warm, but predictable and not exactly exciting.

There are a few good laughs, but it is often funny when it is serious and serious when funny. That said, Roy Romano and Holly Hunter are excellent and save much of the film.

I don't see why this movie get so many high rates. In my opinion it's quite cliché. Flat characters. Just a few moments that i thought it was funny..

Over-praised and mediocre. Still, thought it was fine. Holly Hunter continues the trend of the "Hollywood Bubble" thinking it's perfectly normal to fuck your face all up.
