After a slow start, the film gradually accumulates funny and surprising details, many of them surely drawn directly from life.

Watching this Judd Apatow-produced romcom is like clicking on a for-real YouTube clip of a kitten juggling spoons. Cute. Clever. No wonder The Big Sick has gone viral.

The film is a hoot. It's a hit. It's a smash.
July 27, 2017
A hugely enjoyable, lovable comedy.

Not quite life-or-death viewing, but as good a star vehicle as Nanjiani might have wished for.

It's funny, touching, and perceptive.

"The Big Sick" has a big heart and shows there are still corners left to explore in romantic comedies; it just takes someone willing to find them.

"The Big Sick" has a lot of charm.

Mostly, the movie works for the reason that all the best rom-coms do: you fall in love, a little bit, with Kumail and Emily, and want them to stay together.

"The Big Sick" suffers from an excess of pleasantness, and this very pleasantness thins out its substance, blands out its tone, weakens its comedy.

All the best romantic comedies get even better upon repeat viewings. I'm fully confident The Big Sick will pass that test the next time I see it, which will be very soon.

Like all Judd Apatow-supervised productions, it's about 10 minutes too long, but that is a small complaint when weighed against Nanjiani and Co.'s remarkable achievement.
June 29, 2017
The movie chugs along on the chemistry between Nanjiani, acquitting himself well as a droll leading man, and Zoe Kazan as his sunny, devoted sweetheart, though they're completely upstaged by Holly Hunter and Ray Romano as the girlfriend's parents

Hilarious and heartbreaking with no clear trajectory, frequently catching viewers off guard, it's a rom-com of both heart and brain about a couple tested by illness and clashing cultures.
June 29, 2017
It's a movie that not only puts human imperfections and incongruities on display, but also revels in them.
June 29, 2017
The movie treats the people on screen generously, and it's a romantic comedy with surprising depth of feeling, glancing on all sorts of things: race, religion, tolerance, understanding, the competitive peculiarity of stand-up comedy ...

You don't have to hole up at home praying to the Netflix, Amazon and Hulu gods for cinematic salvation until the fall. Case in point: "The Big Sick," a small movie that makes a big impact.
June 29, 2017
I love "The Big Sick."
June 28, 2017
"The Big Sick," with ease and seeming effortlessness, makes us care a lot of about these people, together and separately. And their journey is odd enough to be interesting.

The recent death of the American rom-com has been much remarked upon, but it only takes one great film to zap it back into life. The Big Sick just might be that film.
