Directed and co-written by Alex Lehmann, Paddletown stars Ray Romano and Mark Duplass as two misfit neighbours in an unlikely friendship.

The two men find themselves on an emotional journey after one of them is diagnosed with terminal cancer…

I’m in for the story, the bromance and to see if I can forget my knowledge and appreciation of Duplass as a comedic actor (The Mindy Project) and stop expecting him to say and do something funny every second, which is basically what I did during this trailer.

Marguerite Moreau, Christine Woods, Alexandra Billings, Kadeem Hardison, Matt Bush, Dendrie Taylor and Stephen Oyoung also star.

Paddletown Release Dates: February 22nd, 2019 (US)…

THE BIG SICK (2017): The Thing I Liked…

I’m not sure that I’ve ever seen a feature length movie about an interracial relationship between a caucasian female and a Pakistani male before, but I really like the way the struggles that come with the resultant culture clash and other challenging life events are captured with humour in The Big Sick.

What the lead actors Kumail Nanjiani and Zoe Kazan did acting-wise, as the couple in the interracial relationship has resulted in a funny, romantic and definitely dramatic movie; a movie that does a good job of delivering laughs as well as a certain realism to the events that take place. 

Some of the realism is likely helped by the fact that The Big Sick is based on the actual lives of the film’s writers – Nanjiani and wife wife Emily V. Gordon. But really, director Michael Showalter and all the other actors involved, including Holly Hunter, Ray Romano and Adeel Akhtar all deliver well balanced performances.

I for one have zero complaints about the The Big Sick. Certainly not in regards to the pace of the story. You’ll likely shed a tear or two, especially if you’re not, how you say…? ‘completely dead inside.’

One more thing… wasn’t the ending just beautiful?
