The Big Sick was fine.
What brought it down for you? Curious since I adored that film.

Movies with weak-willed protagonists tend to frustrate me. I thought Kumail should have stood up to his parents more vigorously, and I would have preferred it if he hadn't tiptoed around the topic. I get that it's a true story, but even so, the message it should have imparted got diluted a bit. Also, some of the jokes just didn't land well for me, especially the actual stand-up bits.

But I liked Ray Romano's character, and the story was worth telling. The scenes around the dinner table with Kumail's family were funny as hell; but again, I just wish he'd shown a bit more of a backbone.
