Big Miracle Thank You Roundup

I’m usually a sucker for feel good movies, especially true stories, but Big Miracle was a big letdown. I’m normally a fan of Drew Barrymore, John Krasinski, and Kristen Bell, but all their characters fell flat. Barrymore was even downright irritating. Last time I suggested One For The Money be renamed as One For The Rental. This time, it’s going to be a Big Miracle if this movie breaks even.

Stay Inspired!

    I’ve only heard negative things about that Big Miracle so far, and your review is icing on my “not gonna see it” cake. Too bad, because the previews look pretty good. I’m almost done catching up on all the Oscar nominees….three to go and I’m done. Tonight: The Help. I really don’t want to see the Louder…Incredibly Close movie (doesn’t look like my type of movie)…but I’ll see that next week. The problem for me is going to be The Actor, which isn’t at any theater near us.

  2. Thanks for this review Buck, very timely. We almost saw this last weekend and had penciled it in for this Saturday. Now we’ll save ourselves the trouble.

    We’re suckers for whale / feel good movies. Our three years in Monterey gave us the opportunity to see a few grey whales. Amazing creatures.

  3. After the previews, I knew that I wasn’t going to see this one. I’m sorry you had such a bad experience. Unfortunately, given what I heard about it, I’m not surprised.

  4. Thanks for saving me some money! My girlfriend has been nagging me about seeing this flick and Ive resisted for a few days, but now I have a reference to tell her to its a waste of time and money. Drew Barrymore used to choose her roles carefully, hope she isnt getting greedy and taking whatever floats by as she ages. Still hot, though!

  5. I don’t think that The Big Miracle is my type of movie. You know what I am waiting for. My new guilty pleasure: The Hunger Games! 🙂
    Thank you for the mention!
