The Big Sick (2017)

A warm, tender and refreshingly honest romantic comedy, this little comedy-drama is the perfect sum of its parts: A clever screenplay, likable characters, a terrific cast with meaty roles, and a conventional but engaging narrative path. Kumail Nanjiani makes for quite an engaging leading man here, while supporting players Holly Hunter and Ray Romano provide the perfect foils for Nanjiani’s slyly sarcastic general energy. The central romance is believable and, although the movie suffers from one too many endings, getting there is a pleasure.

Rating: ★★★★ (out of 5)
