It is, in short, one of the most charming comedies of the year. The script succeeds at tackling its themes—the immigrant experience, millennial dating habits in the digital age, how different cultures approach the institution of marriage—with tremendous specificity and without ever losing sight of the chemistry at the core.

Another strength is the film’s matter-of-fact treatment of South Asian customs. For Kumail, arranged marriage is just a fact of life, and the film takes the same attitude. Its message – that cultures are different but can coexist peacefully – is a welcome one in these riven times, and reinvigorates the tired romcom genre.

You’d still call it a decent rather than mould-breaking film, hamstrung by the cosiness that follows from knowing Emily will survive to claim her co-writer credit; the second hour, indeed, has so much narrative to resolve that it often forgets to be funny. Nevertheless, the sweetness radiating outwards from Nanjiani sustains it.

  • Bilouaustria's rating of the film The Big Sick

    If the first 45 minutes and the rom-com finale are pretty weak, the middle sections quite makes up for it. It is exactly the bit that Apatow enjoys (see "Funny People) : an akward-serious comedy about death and desease. Something that goes beyond the everyday life of a stand-up comedian. The parents are interesting. It is really a refreshing 30 minutes. But caught in between too many clichés.

  • Z's rating of the film The Big Sick

    The same hipster sitcom Hollywood has been peddling for a long time. Fashionable politics supposedly make it timely, but the setup feels weak to me at best. Nanjiani is a talented stand-up, but his acting needs work. His friends are assholes, his love interest is an emotional wreck, her parents are plot devices. A contrived romantic comedy which practically begs you to care about it's gratingly adorable characters.

  • Duncan Gray's rating of the film The Big Sick

    You could argue that, among performers, comedians are the most willing—even pathologically eager—to bare their personal lives for strangers. So bless them for making movies. The semi-autobiographical script by the husband-wife team shines; the courtship of the first half feels both real and specific. That specificity is lost when it starts to follow the rom-com rulebook by the end. But still, one of the gems of 2017.

  • msmichel's rating of the film The Big Sick

    The 'A' list performances by Holly Hunter (wow), Ray Romano and Zoe Kazan make up for some scripting weaknesses in this mostly true tale by lead Kumail Nanjiani. Kazan is a heartbreaker here bringing an emotional wallop we haven't seen her capture since 'Ruby Sparks'. Holly Hunter has some terrific moments here but it may be Romano's midnight confession that steals the film. Slickly directed and well paced.

  • Ethan's rating of the film The Big Sick

    This was a heartwarming and honest comedy about love, relationships, and family and how those things influence our lives and control our actions and emotions. It is slow in parts, like most Apatow Productions, but this film has a lot of heart and Holly Hunter and Ray Romano totally steal the show here in hilarious fashion.

  • Steve Pulaski's rating of the film The Big Sick

    Bolstered by tremendously funny, gifted performances by the entire cast, with a balanced, even-handed mix of light but very funny comedy and emotionally potent drama, The Big Sick makes its case to be the best comedy of the year. It's amazing what happens when you write a screenplay not littered with penis jokes and gratuitous four-letter words. It's so good, it almost justifies sitting through dreck like Fist Fight.

  • HKFanatic's rating of the film The Big Sick

    Director Michael Showalter continues to display his growing dramatic chops, deftly balancing big comedy beats (Holly Hunter sounding off against a xenophobic frat boy has to be one of the movie moments of the year) with a strong emotional current. He also draws another superb performance out of "Ruby Spark's" Zoe Kazan, who - aided by strong writing - elevates what could have been the 'girlfriend in a coma.'

  • Ghostman's rating of the film The Big Sick

    A wonderful and humanistic romantic comedy that is as moving as it is funny. The script is great and the direction is on point but it is the incredibly real performances that bring it home. An adorable film and one of the best of 2017. I can't wait to see what's next for all parties.
