Fresh, relatable humor and authentic drama make "The Big Sick" a rare achievementReviewed byMovie_Muse_ReviewsVote: 9/10

The big screen has experienced a burgeoning of "illness movies" in the last few years, and "The Big Sick" isn't like any of them. Many of these films could be accused of leveraging illness for an emotional punch to the heart, but Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon's story is not built around a character falling ill, but that disease is merely an unusual circumstance that reveals truths and experience common to all people.

First and foremost, however, "The Big Sick" is a comedy. Nanjiani and Gordon's script contains dialogue and comedic bits that carry the trademark of a stand-up comedian, apropos of Nanjiani's comedy roots. The early portion of the film plays as a modern-day comedy about a Pakistani-born comedian falling for a white psychology master's student.

Still, the humor comes from an honest, relatable place with familiar scenarios, especially for the full range of today's young adults. Judd Apatow's producer fingerprints (namely his work with "Girls" and "Love") are clearly visible, though director Michael Showalter ("Wet Hot American Summer") is no slouch when it comes to getting laughs. Aziz Ansari's "Master of None" might be the best comparison, but the point of all this is "The Big Sick" speaks from that same comedic place that yearns for authenticity.

The true story element has a lot to do with it. Rarely do you have a husband and wife write a movie together about how they met starring one of them as themselves, and all these factors being true endears us to Nanjiani and this movie so quickly. Although it's fairly clear the ways in which the story deviates from the truth, Nanjiani playing himself presents a kind of autobiographical fearlessness so rare in movies that we can't help but note how invested he must feel in telling this story that he's willing to open up to an audience in this way.

Kumail's familial pressures as the son of devout Pakistani Muslims play a critical role in this story as well, paramount to most other dynamics in the film. Young people have been pushing against their parents' religious impositions for a long time in comedies, but Nanjiani handles it with both a sense of humor and tactfulness that transcends tropes and stereotypes. He also communicates so thoughtfully about why breaking away from tradition and spurning the family's wishes is so difficult for someone in his shoes. A particular scene in which Kumail talks to his family "in writing" after he's fallen out with them displays a sensitivity and comic ingenuity that makes "The Big Sick" more than just a good comedy script, but a great film script period.

Then, when two serious dynamos in Holly Hunter and Ray Romano enter the picture as Emily's parents, this already hilarious and poignant comedy goes to the next level. They showcase the script's dramatic acuity while also expanding its comedic palette thanks to Hunter's sass and Romano's awkward mopeyness. The parents relationship to Kumail, their handling of the medical issues and overall the way they integrate into the story amplifies the film's sincerity.

Zoe Kazan as Emily also fits perfectly into this movie with her own naturally funny style and equally strong dramatic skills. Even though Kumail seems to be painted as the main character, Kazan ensures Emily is an equal partner in the film's events.

Independent films have been trying to blend comedy and drama in the way "The Big Sick" does so well for a long time, to the point that "The Big Sick" might not seem so original or different. But there's a freshness and an efficiency to the way the film marries personal comedy with human drama about difficult, real subjects. It hasn't been done this well since 2007's "Juno," a film that earned a Best Picture nomination and a Best Original Screenplay Oscar for its witty and blunt take on real issues facing teens and parents. That movie was positioned well for an Awards-season push, and hopefully Lionsgate is prepared to remind critics and voters about "The Big Sick" come winter.

Recognition aside, "The Big Sick" is one of those few films that come out every year that will be palatable to a wide enough array of moviegoers of diverse backgrounds and ages that it can pretty confidently be recommended to anyone (who's allowed to see R-rated movies, of course). The humor plus issues of culture, race, romance, parenting and some life-or-death stuff make for a compelling and relatable movie suited to most tastes.

Lead actor bombs the filmReviewed byarthousefilms-68-939717Vote: 2/10

Ironically, Kumail Nanjiani, the lead actor in this film stands out as a terrible actor against the fantastic talent of Zoe Kazan, Ray Romano, and Holly Hunter. I say, "Ironically," because it is the lead actor's project and story! Zoe Kazan is adorable and charming as his love interest, but he is flat and wooden, which has the effect of creating zero chemistry between the lovers in this romance.

Additionally, there are random, out-of-character scenes forced into the story which are unbelievable and clumsy. For example, when Kumail Nanjiani shows up at a drive- thru restaurant, the bit seems like it is from another character in another movie.

Topping all that, the film keeps its emotional connection to the audience at arm's length due to the insensitive directing that seems to prefer the syllable of every written line in lieu of nuance and charm that may have been between the lines.

Comic Placebo for Serious IssuesReviewed bytigerfish50Vote: 4/10

Like most comedies, 'The Big Sick' is powder-puff drama spiced up with some humorous moments. Its plot tells how a Pakistani-American stand-up comedian embarks on a love affair with a blonde psychology student when she heckles him during one of his stage shows. She breaks up with him after discovering his family are pressing him to choose a Muslim bride for a traditional arranged marriage, but soon afterward falls ill with a serious infection. While keeping vigil at her hospital bedside, he realizes he's still deeply involved with her - and when her parents arrive, the three of them are confronted by their cultural differences.

The characters and story possess some originality and relevance, but the film's effect could have been far more intense if it hadn't focused principally on laughs. Despite the strong emotional content - love, family and ill-health - the film never escapes the clutches of light comedy. The actors deliver respectable performances, but their efforts can't lift the material above the level of a forgettable sit-com. Ken Loach's 'A Fond Kiss' explores similar territory in a far more memorable manner.
