Movie Reviews

Not Big Enough--"Bigger" Still Delivers Quaint Charms And a
K. Harris | Las Vegas, NV | 11/24/2006
(3 out of 5 stars)

""Bigger Than The Sky" is a small, relatively inconsequential film about a regular guy discovering himself in the community theater milieu. A slight comedy, a slight romance, and an even slighter drama--this film is almost too nice for its own good. But with some colorful performances, this pleasant little endeavor seems to be a labor of love for those involved. And it's in this spirit that you actually get caught up in this "Sky."

There is a real innocence, a sweetness almost, about "Bigger than The Sky." Portland, as portrayed here, has a small town quaintness that I question. Marcus Thomas, in the lead, layers on the "aw-shucks" earnestness a bit much for my taste--but overall turns in a competent performance. I'd have preferred more texture in his character, though, I don't feel that we see too much beyond the surface. He needed to be developed a little further to create more of an impact with this tale. We never hear his backstory or learn anything about his broken relationship that triggers this radical new life. He even, at one point, leaves his job--but it's never mentioned again and I was interested in the repercussions to this.

The other cast members are appealing. John Corbett is playful and interesting as Portland's premiere community theater actor. Amy Smart, often better than she is given credit for, is a realistic romantic interest for both guys. Patty Duke, Claire Higgins, and Alan Corduner are all believable and add much charm to the story. Only Sean Astin seems out of place. In a blustery performance (I get it, he is insufferable), toning things down would have enhanced the film immeasurably.

Overall, "Bigger" was a pleasant surprise. I enjoyed it as is--but with some tweaking, it could have been quite a treat. It's a fun diversion, however. If you have an interest in theater, especially, you should check this out. I'd rate it at about 3 1/2 stars which I'm rounding down because it would have been easy with this crew to make a much more substantial film. KGHarris, 11/06."
