ReviewSource Variety
Review Crime caper comedy "Big Nothing" is a lot of energy chasing very little. Uneasy performance mix of Yank and British thesps, headed by a dull David Schwimmer and over-amped Simon Pegg ("Shaun of the Dead"), is a big letdown from writer-director Jean-Baptiste Andrea after his inventive 2003 low-budgeter "Dead End." Wordy script and desperate-to-entertain tone quickly pall...Set in Big Falls, Ore. -- but actually shot in B.C., Wales and the Isle of Man -- yarn pairs call-center colleagues Charlie (Schwimmer) and Gus (Pegg), joined by pushy diner chick Josie (Alice Eve, good), as they blackmail a local reverend for accessing porn Web sites...Andrea's maxed-out visual style is totally at odds with the basic material, which is actually a low-key character comedy. Despite some clever plot twists, wearying result feels as phony as Pegg's and McElhone's Yank accents.

Monica Oyedele, FunctionPix ...a funny tale of mishap...[that] is well written and directed and it is definitely a Big Something.
Tim Evans, Sky Movies ...a Brit-caper that takes its comedy black...the constant drip-feed of black gags keeps things just the right side of thoroughly distasteful.
