Critic Reviews for Bigger Than the Sky
An off-putting combination of earnestness and apparent disregard for audience involvement.
Are the filmmakers making meta use of a bland, uncharismatic actor to play a bland, uncharismatic actor who plays one of the theater's most memorable men? Nah, thinking like that requires panache.
Bigger lopes along endlessly, a no-surprises foray into backstage high jinks and the notion of life as the best acting coach there is.
Nearly two hours of an earnest, predictable comedy about a pathetic schlemiel who hopes to redeem himself by acting in the community theater.
Audience Reviews for Bigger Than the Sky
Ahh, the theater, the theater, and here's a nod to loving the stage life by first time director Corley ... that sadly fails only with the casting of the lead, who embodies the drone he begins as at first, yet cannot realise the character arc to larger-than-life animal that the script calls for later. What is interesting though, beside the main plots fail, is Patty Duke and her son working together (and that she is a twin once more!).
Josh Corbett was great, Marcus Thomas was one-dimensional. This film took 3 days for me to watch....had to keep taking breaks to power through it.
So many things wrong with this flick, starting with a protagonist who, although "nice enough," just isn't very likeable.
