Mindless escapism that works because of the film’s very likeable, charismatic comedic leads.
The film may not be destined for cult classic status, but it’s a fun ride that’s worth taking.
At best, this feels like a project that would be better suited as a direct to video release.
It’s “Three O’Clock High” but with teachers and a Millennial social media sensibility (#teacherfight).
There are certain movies that are so intensely personal, so fiercely credible that there’s no question they are based on true stories. “The Big Sick” feels authentic because it is authentic.
