Every summer needs a fun and innocent rom-com, and The Big Sick is it for 2017, with the crazily adorable Zoe Kazan filling the Julia Roberts/Meg Ryan role. The more recognizable Ray Romano and Holly Hunter are idiosyncratically good as Emily’s parents, while the Pakistani family of Kumail (who plays himself!) is just as enjoyable in their cultural dissonance. There are no big laughs – in fact, the stand-up comics are surprisingly unfunny – and no big drama: we all know Emily will live and love will find a way. The movie’s strength is its consistent tone, pleasant company throughout – and Zoe Kazan.
