What's subversive about it is that it looks just like any other romantic comedy except that some men love other men. Imagine that: social justice, racial harmony, peaceable kingdoms, and a cup of cappuccino at the general store.

Um belo elenco em uma fantasia açucaradamente otimista que, criada pelo diretor-roteirista Bezucha, é um sonho de respeito de tolerância. E, por isso mesmo, agradável de assistir.
| Original Score: 4/5
December 13, 2002
Lackluster at 24 frames per second, Writer/Director Thomas Bezucha's debut film, "Big Eden" is another love story about falling in love with the wrong guy, all the while not realizing the right guy is in love with you.

Too concerned with being quirky and endearing and soon runs out of local charm.

Big Eden focuses on relationships and creates a feel good fable that you won't find in ordinary Montana life.

January 17, 2002
The characterizations are nifty, but writer/director Thomas Bezucha's stodgy direction holds the story back; there's often a sense that the camera is missing the actors' best work.
January 6, 2002
Other than this gay-friendly gimmick, Bezucha's plot is as hoary as they come.
November 16, 2001
Echoes the mellow sensibilities of the TV series Northern Exposure.

In an age when self-acceptance and taking a hold of one's destiny is more relevant than ever, Big Eden may be the right inspirational movie for our evolving times.
November 2, 2001
Surely one of the most genuinely sweet-natured movies around.
November 2, 2001
Without any true motivation for this love to develop, it's hard to truly believe Bezucha's gay fairy tale.
October 19, 2001
Personally, I found it irresistible -- not great, but definitely irresistible -- and I certainly enjoyed the company of these caring, enlightened people.
October 19, 2001
Much here is charming, if not exactly plausible.
October 18, 2001
Gross doesn't have the spark of a star, and most everyone else seems to hail straight from central casting.

Nothing more than a small-town gay love triangle with no antagonist and very little conflict.

...a funny coming-of-age romantic romp set in the Montana timberwoods, a thousand miles from nowhere.... A sure fire audience pleaser.

September 28, 2001
It is annoyingly preposterous, corny where it could be comedic, sappy where it could be uplifting.
September 28, 2001
This may be a date movie with enough quiet charm to appeal to anybody, straight, gay or, like Dean, undecided.
August 31, 2001
A story about characters who are so extremely closeted that their deepest feelings often remain a secret even to the audience.
July 23, 2001
Big Eden has a simple enough plot, but first-time writer-director Thomas Bezucha has endowed it with the twinkly winsomeness of a fairy tale.
