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.
It's strictly amateur hour.
Painfully well-intentioned, the film is undone by a lead character who undermines any goodwill earned by the performances of John Corbett, Amy Smart, Clare Higgins, Allan Corduner, Patty Duke and Sean Astin.
Unwatchable mushy comedy.
Bigger Than the Sky is, like its lead character, equal parts endearing and exasperating.
Feels constrained by its unshakable predisposition toward actorly fawning.
The story is as predictable as it is saccharine. Apart from the presence of local landmarks, there's no reason the Rose City should be proud of this effort.
As the main character learns his life lesson from those kooky thespians, the rest of us are just reminded why we avoided drama club in the first place.
A sweet story can't overcome a seriously flawed film.
So many things wrong with this flick, starting with a protagonist who, although "nice enough," just isn't very likeable.
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.
