    i have no idea why this movie is getting such high ratings. it was awful. it was boring. i laughed exactly 3 times during the whole film. despite a good cast, this movie was a waste of time.
  • That older sick girlfriend movie with Joseph Gordon levitt is better. Ugh on Zoe kaz-ant Act

  • Grab the tissues

    This is easily the best romantic comedy of the decade and you will probably at least tear up in a few spots. I thought this movie was going to be overhyped and a disappointment, but it’s actually really sweet, funny, and pretty original. Plus, it’s based on a true story. My sister cried. I cried. The dog cried. We were all a blubbery mess watching this.
  • Ridiculous. Boring.

    He thinks he’s funny – not.
  • Sucked, boring and lacks value. How is this a comedy?

    Even Ray Ramono couldn't save this. It's carelessly shallow couple are bland and selfish. It was quirky at best but not in a good enough way to make it watchable or redeeming. The parents were cast well and that's all the positive I can muster.
  • Both funny and dramatic

    By Paul Sukhu
    Good comedy with dramatic twists. Not what you would expect based on the preview.
  • Reality Check!!

    The Big Sick Great storyline that actually has a meaningful impact on real life relationships & the effects of how we do think feel at all times. Job well done by all characters in the role played.
