My Giant Review

Billy Crystal plays a Hollywood agent who stumbles upon Max, a giant living in Romania, and tries to get him into the movies.


Billy Crystal is a third-rate showbiz agent in this derivative slush that masquerades as comedy. It's a struggle to be affected by the tale of a very tall Romanian (7 ft 7 in basketball star Gheorghe Muresan), who is 'discovered' by Crystal in a remote monastery and transported to America for stardom and a reunion with his childhood sweetheart, when issues surrounding freakishness and exploitation are abandoned in favour of typically mawkish goo about family life.

Steven Seagal has a bizarre cameo as himself and there's one memorable spewing-up scene. But that's about all folks.

Directed with less oomph than a Reliant Robin by Michael Lehmann, whose legacy of Heathers and The Truth About Cats And Dogs is really in tatters by the final credits.
