Big Fish : Movie Review

Big Fish (2003)Big Fish is one of those films that isn't likely to be a strong box office performer, but which will probably generate a more lasting impression once it is available for home viewing. Despite a well-known director (Tim Burton) and recognizable performers (Ewan McGregor, Albert Finney, Jessica Lange, Danny DeVito), the film is a little too off the beaten path to find full mainstream acceptance. With a whimsical, fairy-tale approach reminiscent of The Princess Bride and Terry Gilliam's fractured fables, the movie has the ability to enchant and amuse, but it is not a traditionally commercial property. (Hopefully, the viewing population will prove me wrong, but I somehow doubt it.)
