Audience Reviews for The Big White

  • Jun 27, 2012
    The Big White can be rightly thought of as a poor man's Fargo, a clever black comedy that doubles as a character study. It doesn't have the same witty dialogue or sense of depth as Fargo, or the laughs of other black comedies like Bad Santa, but The Big White is held up by strong performances by Robin Williams, Giovanni Ribisi, and Woody Harrelson. The cinematography is done very well, giving the film a very authentic, small town feel set against such a barren landscape. The script is also fairly strong, with some genuinely interesting plot twists. Quirky, passably witty, and unique, it's an effective dark comedy with a Cohen brothers-esque feel. 3.5/5 Stars

    fun for a little bit but the darkness of the story is a little to much and the story is just uninspiring. williams takes another interesting choice that doesn't pay off

    Its a weirdly good film with funny and unbelievable bits i think its sort of dark humour but its weird and heart warming as its gives erfect reasons for why robin williams did wat he did with twist unvieling at every moment so worth a watch

    <b>One Sentence Review:</b> A heartbreaking dark comedy drama with some outstanding performances from Robin Williams, Giovanni Ribisi, Holly Hunter and Woody Harrelson.
