    Thought I was going to laugh more...the story was cute but dont know why the movie is so highly rated. Enjoyed the cultural experience.

  • Greatly surprised, and thoroughly entertained

    By Jaime James
    I'd read over a few reviews of The Big Sick, but didn't research much. And, when I saw the price of $9.99, I quickly purchased it. I was glad I did because it was a great movie to watch; realizing it was based on the lives of Kumail and Emily made it even better.

  • That older sick girlfriend movie with Joseph Gordon levitt is better.

  • Kumail Nanjiani

    Apparently Kumail Nanjiani looks at all his bad reviews. So on the off chance you're reading this. How's it going man? I'm a fan of your work. Keep doing big things.

    Enjoyable & interesting. Well-acted by the cast. Not necessarily an easy watch, but it’s not supposed to be. Very relatable movie for many families. Life is fragile & short & fleeting. Cherish every loved one every day ❤️❤️❤️
