The Giant Mechanical Man Reviews
I have the Australian rental copy which is renamed "Love is in the air" and has a big picture of a smiling Makin Ackerman on the cover, so I was expecting something very light and fluffy.
Actually, Jenna Fischer is the main actress and Malin has a smaller role as her younger, but more stable sister. Jenna plays a young woman who has lost her job, then her flat and has to move in with her sister who is hellbent on matchmaking her with an absolute douche author who runs seminars on how to talk to people. Honesty I did not recognize Topher Grace in his wig. I couldn't stand the character, but full points as I think that was the idea!
Along the way she meets a similarly lost man who does street art as a mechanical giant and the two connect.
The movie is nicely done and a little deeper than I expected. Yes, it gets a little far fetched at the end, but it's sweet. Definitely sat through worse.
Great performance by Chris Messina in particular, icky performance by Topher Grace + WIG. Jenna Fischer was adorable, wish she'd had a more interesting character to work from.
