Editors Note
Note Staten Islander Paul Aufiero (Patton Oswalt) is a die-hard fan of the red and blue. But it?s not the United States of America that draws his devotion--it?s the New York Jets. Paul and his friend Sal (Kevin Corrigan) can?t believe their luck when they see a Giants player at a gas station. Following their hero takes them to a strip club in the city, where the unexpected happens, bringing Paul into the limelight. But regardless of the changes in Paul?s life, there?s always the late-season game with the Eagles--and a confrontation with arch enemy Philadelphia Phil (Michael Rapaport)--on the horizon. Also starring Marcia Jean Kurtz and Matt Servitto, BIG FAN marks the directorial debut of Robert Siegel, the screenwriter behind THE WRESTLER.
Reviews
Rolling Stone 3 stars out of 4 -- "Comedian Patton Oswalt triumphantly nails every comic and dramatic nuance as Paul Aufiero, a New York Giants obsessive who has long ago moved from fan to fanatic." 09/03/2009
A.V. Club "[T]he final 15 minutes or so of BIG FAN are white-knuckle....The movie concludes with a series of tense, unpredictable scenes." -- Grade: B 08/27/2009
New York Times "[A] spasmodically funny and bleak love story....One of the pleasures of this agreeably low-key and modest film is that the writer and director Robert Siegel isn't selling a message or trying to wring a grand metaphor out of his humble material..." 08/28/2009
Box Office 3.5 stars out of 5 -- ?Siegel finds rich characterization, meaningful emotion and the highest of human stakes in vast and neglected worlds most films don?t even bother to notice...? 09/01/2009
Entertainment Weekly "The movie is an unblinking look at the hidden (or perhaps not so hidden) pathology of American sports mania..." -- Grade: A- 09/04/2009 ,Included in Entertainment Weekly's "The Best Films Of The Year" -- "[T]he MVP is comedian Patton Oswalt in a powerhouse dramatic debut, inhabiting the role with nothing held back..." 12/25/2009
Chicago Sun-Times 3.5 stars out of 4 -- "A comedy with dark undertones....Patton Oswalt, best known as a stand-up comedian, brings a kind of brilliance to his performance." 09/30/2009
