Paul Dano is agreeably awkward as directionless bed salesman Brian Weathersby, whose plan to adopt a Chinese orphan is put on hold when he meets Zooey Deschanel’s sexually aggressive Happy, while John Goodman amply fills the big-name-in-flashy- -character-role requirement as her overbearing father. ‘Gigantic’ is a film that succeeds by wearing the viewer down, as an infuriatingly coy, self-conscious first act gives way to a sweet and affecting climax. So while Aselton has nothing new to offer, he still manages to raise the occasional sympathetic smile.

Avoid at all costs. Unfathomable plot and many questions unanswered. if anyone can work this one out, post it here! Only mildly bearable because of the delightful Zooey Deschanel.
the most unsatisfying film I've seen in ages. Plot non-existent; dialogue forced, juvenile comedy. I could go on but the film is not worth further time on further comments.
