"I think this movie suffered from a misleading ad campaign which made it look like a slapstick comedy. It's not.It's adult comedy-drama, and a pretty good one. Crystal, the ultimate cynic, slowly becomes best friends with his giant, the ultimate innocent. And there are actually a fair amount of laughs along the way.It helps to know that this picture was inspired by the late Andre the Giant, who worked with Crystal on "The Princess Bride." Giants' lives are never easy, and that's why this picture has to be serious as well as fun.I have the feeling this picture may play better on video. If you like funny-sad pictures, check it out."

"After reading the reviews, I had to respond. I really enjoyed this movie. A lot of people seem to be missing the entire point of the movie (as well as the storyline). Apparently a movie with Billy Crystal must be all hilarity and no poignancy for people to enjoy it.Maybe advertising is to blame, but I was lucky enough to not hear much about it when it was released. With no expectations in mind, I thought the movie was great -- and Billy Crystal does a decent job taking on a dramatic role. Muresan does surprisingly well with his role as well, concidering the horrible screen talents of other famous-sports-players-put-in-movie types. I would recommend this to anyone...as long as they don't expect Crystal in a stand-up-comedic routine."

"My Giant is very funny! Billy Crystal is his usual self in this movie. The same comic personality like in all the rest of his movies. This is a wonderful movie. It also has drama. Very few movies possess the qualitites of making you laugh and cry, and making it work. This does though. If you are a Billy Crystal fan, you will love this!"
