If any film is destined to find a cult audience on DVD, it's The Big Empty.

Thanks to Favreau, even the film's most ridiculous detours carry a certain plausibility; he shines his indignities on and perseveres, and we can't help but sympathize.

Anderson squanders the setting's potential and a cast of indie-movie all-stars in his muddled and weak feature.

The Big Empty is much more a romantic fable than Swingers, the singles comedy that established Favreau but has a similarly jovial, unpretentious charm.

More amiable than laugh-out-loud funny.

Some may praise The Big Empty as a poor man's David Lynch-meets-The X-Files, but it's more of a starving homeless man's David Lynch-meets-The X-Files.
