Tim Burton has always been the best visionary of our time. Now Burton has outdone himself by putting all of the elements of his visual wizardry together with excellent storytelling. Big Fish is the ONLY film I have seen this year... Full review

Finally! Big Fish comes through with an original story, great acting and amazing visuals. I can't tell you how sick I am of the over-used hollywood script of the white & minority police partners (I-spy, bad company, blue streak, showtime, national... Full review

An uplifting and magical tale, Big Fish entices us on a spectacular journey where hearts and lives connect and collide. The casting is wonderful: Albert Finney and Ewan McGregor charm effortlessly as the older and young Edward, while Jessica Lang and Alison Lohman dazzle as Sandy older & younger. ... Full Review

Marion Cotillard, who plays his pregnant wife, has good chemistry with both Crudup and Albert Finney, who is astounding as the elder Edward....At the risk of depressing director Tim Burton for the rest of his career, this one is going to be hard to top..... ... Full Review
