Review by Gene
Inside the hardened exterior of every tough guy lies a soft spot that rarely if ever comes out. For many men this soft spot is revealed at the birth of their first child, the giving away of their daughter in marriage, or any number of life’s precious or tragic moments. For others, like myself, there are certain movies that bring it out like nothing else can. Big Fish is one of my “big softy” movies, and I imagine I’m not alone. The last three weeks of reviews here have given you dinosaur attacks, tragedies of war and edge of your seat drama. So, I thought it would be nice to dial it back a bit and sit through a film that will make you smile throughout, laugh intermittently, and tear up occasionally.
