    Other than Ray Ramono the film was terrible. Holly Hunter is insufferable.
  • Terrible

    This is one of the worst movies I've seen. The story and acting were incredibly shallow. Every moment was cringeworthy. I really don't understand how it could be 98% on RT.
  • Overwrought

    It has it's small tender moments as a pretty run-of-the-mill romcom, but when the most genuine, funny, and naturally unforced performance comes by way of Ray Romano you know it must be a pretty weak script these actors are working from.
  • So many layers

    Excellent movie for just about any (adult) human. Ray Romano's best performance to date.
  • Fantastic, modern romantic comedy

    It’s refreshing to see such a good film about life and love that embraces the way that the world works in 2017. It’s relatable in a way that a lot of other rom-coms just aren’t. Also, it was genuinely hilarious, and that’s always a plus.
  • Not all that..

    Okay, yes this movie was good. But honestly, NOT 98% rotten tomato score worthy. I got super bored like five times...I don't think they developed on their relationship enough. Just like..all of a sudden they were dating. No fireworks. Cute story IRL tho
  • Surprisingly a good movie

    I just randomly watched this movie not expecting much and was so pleasantly entertained. Sometimes this genre can be very cliche but this managed to be a love story that wasn’t! Good acting and story line!

    I'm surprised it got the rating it did. I thought the acting and script was very poor. There were several instances that just seemed so unrealistic and innapropriate given the context.

    I thought it would be a lot funnier than it was. The acting wasn’t great at all. I wouldn’t waste the money renting it.

    Comedy vs death; well written; well executed. Great chemistry. I needed to find hope for Hollywood and this came through.

    One of the best true story films. So funny! Just wonderfully written, acted, and directed. If you rent it, you'll wish you bought it.
  • Favorite film this year!

    I was excited to see this film as Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon have always been funny podcast guests. Kumail is a funny comedian and with Emily, tehy make a great team. The film did not let me down. Everybody in it was fantastic, including Zoe Kazan playing the part of Emily. The chemistry between Ray Romano and Holly Hunter was perfect as well. I recommend this film over any remakes or superhero films anyday!
  • Award Winning Movie

    I don’t watch a lot of romantic comedies, but I would, if more of them were like “The Big Sick”. I liked the chemistry between all of the actors, the characters are very likable, and the emotions that were portrayed felt genuine. This is easily in my top 5 movies of 2017.
  • Incredible

    This is one of the best of 2017. It's honest, funny, and beautiful. I don't know anyone who dislikes it, and I'm not sure I want to

    I've been a fan of Kumail and Emily from the early days of The Indoor Kids, so it's really heartwarming to see this story on the big screen. I'm so glad it turned out as great as it did and i can't wait to see it again in iTunes.
  • Funny and Touching

    Well done Drama/Conedy/Romance about a man trying to figure out who he wants to be and the girl that helps him make up his heart and mind. Touching and really funny with some really great acting all around.
