The Big Sick revitalizes the often moribund romantic comedy subgenre with a true story of love, death and the everyday comedy of being a 21st century American.
– Manhole Dargis • The NYTimes

The Big Sick’s willingness to wade into the complexities of love and family make it surprisingly compelling. But this rom-com also wades into profanity and sexual innuendo, too.
– Adam R. Holz • Plugged In

Even if The Big Sick risks being too long, or too gently lovable, it’s certainly welcome counter-programming for a clobbering summer.
– Emily Yoshida • Vulture

Based on the real-life courtship between Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon, THE BIG SICK tells the story of Pakistan-born aspiring comedian Kumail (Nanjiani), who connects with grad student Emily (Kazan) after one of his standup sets. However, what they thought would be just a one-night stand blossoms into the real thing, which complicates the life that is expected of Kumail by his traditional Muslim parents.

When Emily is beset with a mystery illness, it forces Kumail to navigate the medical crisis with her parents, Beth and Terry (Holly Hunter and Ray Romano) who he's never met, while dealing with the emotional tug-of-war between his family and his heart.
