Big News from Grand Rock is a fictional romp with a poignant core.
A straight-faced but screwball comedy that's a little dated - rotary-dial phones? - yet absolutely pleasing.
Writer/director Daniel Perlmutter presents a sweet little comedy satirizing life in a small town that is more likely to produce gentle smiles than laugh-out-loud guffaws.
An overlong (even at 87 min.), ho-hum affair. The premise is fairly broad and remains fairly silly. It's not that Big News from Grand Rock lacks bigness or grandness--its problem is there's no new-ness or bite or grit to its merely amiable comedy.
What might power a fun 22 minutes of TV proves unworkably naive at an hour and a half.
Big News is a first feature from Canadian writer/director Daniel Perlmutter, and while the plot has a slightly by-the-numbers feel, it gets a lot of mileage out of its kooky concept.
