Mmmm, I don't want to get picky, but can i lose myself in Gravy's depiction of the BIG one? Not so much judging by this trailer. He just doesn't sound, well, fat enough!

It's tough to have to play someone that died fairly recently, I do get that, plus we've all lived and breathed Big pretty intensely before and after his death so are familiar with him in a way we're not with, say, Ray Charles. But I think a biopic's success rests intently on its lead. And if the lead ain't cutting it...

Sorry, let me fully reserve judgement until I see the damn thing. It looks slick enough I guess, production-wise. And, hey, at least the soundtrack is a guaranteed smash!
