Feel-good, fresh, funny
23 June 2017 | by (San Diego) – See all my reviews

I caught a free premiere of this movie a couple of weeks ago, thanks to UC San Diego and Amazon. I went with a fairly high expectation since Judd Apatow and Amazon produced it, and boy was I satisfied !

The story - A stand-up comedian of Pakistani origin falls for a white girl. The girls falls into a coma, and the guy needs to bond with the girl's family while she is recovering. This inter-racial thing forms the basis for many a gag in this movie - The most hilarious one is about 9/11, and I have not heard a theater laugh louder.

This film is a a real life account of the events that happened between writers Kumail Nanjiani, and his wife Emily Gordon. And because it comes from real life, there's no stereotyping here - every aspect of the movie is genuine. The difference between east and west is so splitting, and you laugh at both sides. Ray Romano, Holly Hunter, Zoe Kazan, Anupam Kher - everyone in the cast does an adequate job. Kumail, the leading man, needs some improvement in the serious scenes. He's a natural in the stand-up sequences. Oh, and Holly Hunter is a blast !

I've not seen a funnier movie about a girl in a coma. It's funny, and it's heart warming. I mean what else are you going to do this weekend? Watch transformers? Go for "The Big Sick", you will have a hearty laugh.
