Time Out says
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.
