Far too silly for my liking. Only watched half of this movie and then gave up. The mix of reality and fantasy just didn't work for me, and the plot just didn't seem to go anywhere very quickly. A... Read more few good special effects, but not enough to compel me to keep watching.
A great movie which we highly recommend.The tale of a man ,about to become a father,who returns home with his pregnant wife, to try to be reunited with his ailing ,estranged father .All his life his... Read more father stretched the truth,great while he was young, but this is embarrasing and frustrating now that he is grown.Even near death his father continues with the big tales, or does he? Full of strange twists, gauranteed to keep you entertained.
This movie is absolutely captivating and magical. It holds one's attension to the end. It has such symbolism of the magic places he visits on his journey through life. You can see what places in life... Read more he has been due to seeing the metaphors in the lands he visits. Absolutely lovely.
A story teller's story of a dying father who expands stories for entertainment and son who craves the truth. The story follows the father's life through his storytelling and a sons journey to accept... Read more his father for who he is. Neither slow or racey, Big Fish is a stylised Burton film with some solid performances by top actors. Literally a wonderful film, full of wonder.
Quite a good little movie - never really heard of it before, but took it due to the actors - but very surprised how good it was.
Absoulutely Tim Burton, fantastic (weird) cinematography, great colour and images. Wanders in and out of reality and leaves you with a feeling of fantasy, but with real values attached. Good fun.
What is it with Ewan McGregor? As soon as he goes to Hollywood, it's like he forgets how to act. He does the dodgiest American accents known to man and performs in a woody, uninspired manor. A bit like... Read more when he plays Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars. Dreadful. And Albert Finney's accent isn't much better, but he at least acts with some conviction. Why choose two Brits? What saves this film is the story. It's told with warmth and sincerity and is best described as Baron von Munchausen meets Oh Brother where art thou, set in Forrest Gump-land. It's definitely worth watching.
This is a real feel good movie. Good actors, Ewan Mcgregor plays the young main character, and does a great job.
This was a pretty good story, all family enjoyed, would recommend to all that want a good wholesome story for the whole family, including little ones.. as its pretty tame.
A really cute little film - nicely paced and an easy, untaxing watch. It's not going to change your life, but it will entertain you. Some odd casting, but all seems to work surprisingly well.
