Charlie is an ex-teacher turned reluctant call center employee who gets fired on the first day. Distraught on being unable to provide for his daughter Emily and cop wife, Penelope, he is suddenly contacted by Gus, an aspiring scam artist who presents Charlie with a seemingly snag-free plan to make some cash.
This movie feels as if it should've spawned from the loins of a Cohen Brother. It's a no holds barred, anything could happen, topsy turvy, down and out little comedic thriller that throws nothing but curve balls the entire running time.
Simon Pegg was great as always with David Schwimmer playing his typical "Ross" character. But it's not Ross that you pick the film up for, Simon Pegg steals the show.
Despite some rough edges and breakable story elements, BIG
Nothing was situationally hilarious through every frame. It's the kind of movie where you're not laughing at the actors but instead laughing at what the writer of the story is having them convincingly do.
Amazing amounts of miscommunication, lies, and laughable foils in a movies seemingly perfect plan. But none the less a great unheralded little movie that I thoroughly enjoyed.
