Big Fish

Billy Crudup tries to find out more about his dying father by figuring out what is the truth and what is just another one of his tall tales. His father is Albert Finney played by Ewan McGregor when he was younger. Directed by Tim Burton.

Rest assured that Ewan McGregor did not have funny hair in this movie. He did have some silly sideburns when he was supposed to be in the 70's but that's it. This was a cute, sweet movie. It was along the lines of Edward Scissorhands with a romantic story as the basis of the entire movie. It wasn't oustanding but I did get to watch Ewan McGregor for a couple hours.

We saw this as a Christmas movie. Jer's dad thought it was too long. I was waiting for more to happen. It just told little stories here and there and you could get the overlying theme of the movie, but it was kinda all over the place. The main character likes to tell stories so it was just one story after another.

The best part of the movie was the middle part. The beginning and end showed Albert Finney, but the middle part is when he told stories of when he was younger and it was Ewan McGregor. That was the best part.

    I saw this last night and thought it was a very cute and fun movie. I enjoyed the crazy stories and how the son is embarassed by them but later comes to enjoy them. Also, Billy Crudup (what is up with that name?!?!?) sounds just like this guy at work – it was really weird.
