The Big Picture (1989)


This a Covid-19 2020 minireview!

“I don’t know you. I don’t know your work. But I think you are a genius. And I am never wrong about that.” – Neil Sussman

Number of Times Seen – At least Twice (Cable in the 80’s and 10 May 2020)

Brief Synopsis – An aspiring film maker does all he can to try and make it in the business.

Bottom Line – Fun behind the scenes look at Hollywood and how things work Kevin Bacon is great in the lead and helps make things so much more realistic to watch unfold. His character is able to give us an insiders look at the way that things work in Hollywood. This is a film directed by Christopher Guest and does a great job satirizing the way that things work in the imperfect and unpredictable world of Hollywood. Recommended!

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Martin Short regrets not appearing in the film’s credits. The reason he is uncredited: He was considered an “extended cameo” only having four scenes, totaling seven minutes. In his autobiography, he was so proud of the Neil Sussman character, that he wished he’d asked for screen credit. (From IMDB)

Rating – Globe Worthy (7/10)
