Critic Reviews for They Might Be Giants

All Critics (9)

Comédia romântica que se torna fascinante graças à sua galeria de personagens insanos, ao desempenho dos protagonistas e à curiosa mensagem sobre a busca da felicidade através do não-conformismo às convenções da sociedade.

For dark-edged whimsy and charm, few films are better.

Its humor and emotions are subtle, and the exterior of the film is a quite bizarre mix of sometimes disparate elements

Audience Reviews for They Might Be Giants

The cast is great, the movie itself is a bit sloppy. But it's still fun to watch. I bet the play is a bit better. Still, it's worth seeing for George C. Scott's performance. CHECK IT OUT.
