Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: When it catches fire, this great-looking movie offers hilarious diversions. And as father and son struggle toward a hard-won reconciliation, Big Fish reveals its beating heart.
Fresh: A compelling look at the relationships between fathers and sons, and the child coming to terms with the parent's mortality.
Rotten: A long-winded indulgence in tear-and-a-smile whimsy.
Fresh: An enchanting tale from Tim Burton that weaves together reality and myth so touchingly it hardly matters which is which.
My Absolute Favorite Movie
I seriously cannot say enough good things about this film. It is very artistic in nature, and those who don't like movies in the abstract may wish to stay away. Many people have called this a movie that has no idea what it wants to be, but i think that is the beauty of it. It is not pretentious, it comes right out and says it doesn't make sense, and I enjoyed everything and anything it tried to accomplish. Bravo Tim Burton and co, Bravo!
this is probably one of the best acted,most original, most magical movies or our generation
