A Fitting Tribute....To A Giant...
This film was Billy Crystal's tribute to Andre The Giant, his co-star in "The Princess Bride" and former WWE Legend.
This film does not focus on Andre directly, but on a character based on him. Crystal plays an agent stuck in Romania, who happens across a "Giant" who loves his simple life, but dreams of stardom. Of course there are pitfalls along the road and a measure of pathos for The Giant...
Overall this is an uplifitng film, just as was the life of the man who inspired it...

Awesome.
Hilarious beyond belief. My giant is so tall you can't help but laugh at him. The guy has real talent. My mate said he saw him in real life in Cornwall and he's twice as tall as he looks on screen. He's probably about 9ft by my estimations. I haven't seen 'my giant' in any other films which is a tragedy since this guy can act.
Steven Siegal makes a cameo in this film which sent me into an ecstasy of excitement. Awesome. Also mini-me has a cameo in a scene where loads of midgets fight the giant. Good old fashioned entertainment. Disappointingly 'My giant' calls the fight off because somebody calls him a freak. I was pretty disappointed when the giant didn't continue fighting but he does beat somebody up later, which is some consolation I suppose. The midget fight was better though.
Unfortunately like a lot of masterpieces this film is flawed. Firstly there are some sentimental moments. BORING!!!. Also Billy
Crystal is in the film. His acting looks embarrassingly incompetent next to 'my giant' and he's not funny. Also his son insults Steven Siegal over the phone, which I found distressing and unforgivable. A lot of the times Billy Crystal has more lines than my giant which is ludacris. The film is called 'My GIANT' not 'My little curly-haired annoying not-funny disgrace of a man'. This film would be a lot better if Billy Crystal wasn't in it and maybe Steven Siegal had a bigger role.
