Roger Ebert Full Review
Very Good ..."The Big Sick” never feels like shameless navel-gazing. The events that ultimately brought the two together are extreme, but the depiction of them always rings true. ...it goes on a tad longer than it should. Some tightening, especially toward the end, might have made a great film truly excellent.
NY Post Full Review
Good "The Big Sick” makes a strong case for the healing powers of love, generosity and — just like Reader's Digest always said — laughter. ...this is Nanjiani's show. Bits of his smart, cross-culturally incisive stand-up are sprinkled throughout...
Rolling Stone Full Review
Very Good Their hilarious and heartfelt script has a rare authenticity that pulls you in and keeps you glued to the screen. Nanjiani is a revelation, investing his role with grit, grace and touching gravity. The Big Sick is the frankest and funniest date movie around, but be warned: You'll laugh till it hurts.
Slant Magazine Full Review
Good ...a comedy through and through, but much of it is as sad as you'd expect a story of forbidden romance centered on a comatose twentysomething to be. The Big Sick go beyond the usual duties of the rom-com in the depth of its emotional explorations.
