A revelation of a movie, both in filmmaking and commercial success. While little-known abroad, it has made more than $42 million in US Box Office revenue out of a tiny $5 million budget. Kumail Nanjiani, stand-up comedian and star of the show Sillicon Valley, tells his own story of romance with his now-wife Emily V. Gordon (who co-wrote the movie). Because it is based on a true story, and because it is the product of love of both its writers and stars, this movie is incredibly heartfelt. It is also timely, addressing heavy themes such as identity, immigration, and family relationships. Not to mention it is absolutely hilarious. And it’s produced by Judd Apatow. Trust me and go watch it.

Most genuine love story I have ever come across. The sheer innocence of the characters are just amazing. Definitely one of my top ten all time favorite.

What starts off like a typical Judd Apatow romcom, becomes an interesting and realistic drama/comedy. And the story is Kumail’s actual love story with his wife of now 10 years. In many ways the Big Sick is a fresh air into the romantic comedy genre. And hat-tip for the performances of Holly Hunter and Ray Romano as the girl’s parents, they were both amazing.
