The Big Sick (2017, Michael Showalter)

Categories: 2017 and Movies.

This is a pretty damn funny rom com that’s kind of like real life, not ridiculous version of While You Were Sleeping, only not. (It really isn’t, there’s just a coma involved too.)

I must say that I laughed a lot more than I thought I would, given the meet cute at the beginning and the general “mildly amusing” feel for the first little bit. But what I respect in this movie is it finding comedy at times when romantic comedies would normally go full romance or where lesser films would get serious. In fact, it’s mostly funny throughout, even in the serious scenes when lesser films would go entirely serious. (Though the audience didn’t seem quite as receptive to jokes in the serious scenes.)

Anyway, very good for what it is.

8/10
