The Big White
Time Out says
A purported black comedy unfolding in white-out surroundings, this combination of financial scheming, passing cadavers and botched kidnapping would have a hard time dispelling memories of the Coen brothers’ ‘Fargo’ even if it were any good. Which it isn’t, unfortunately. The would-be amusing plot developments are predictable as the Alaskan snowfall, Williams’ desperation isn’t that funny, merely, well, desperate, and Holly Hunter’s flailing turn as his apparently Tourette’s-afflicted spouse is one of those doomed ideas which shouldn’t have progressed beyond script stage. Flawed in conception and execution, this is a non-starter.
