A Gigantic Hit… or Flop?

by | Mar 30th, 2009 | 5:42PM | Filed under: Trailers

Out of the handful of independent films opening in limited release this weekend, Gigantic looks the strangest to me.  It’s about a mattress salesman (Paul Dano, There Will Be Blood) who’s already in the process of adopting a baby from China when he starts dating a happy-go-lucky rich chick (Zooey Deschanel, Yes Man). Their relationship — and rich chick’s overbearing father (John Goodman) — may or may not throw a wrench into mattress guy’s adoption plans.


I haven’t heard any buzz about this film, which leads me to believe that it might be one of those comedies that is trying too hard to be quirky and ends up annoying everyone in the process. Then again, I had that same fear about Little Miss Sunshine (in which Dano also starred, as vow-of-silence-taking Dwayne) and somehow that story, full of each-one-odder-than-the-next characters, managed to be both funny and heartbreaking at the same time.

If you want to see how everything in Gigantic plays out, take a look at its release calendar here to see when it will debut in a city near you.  I’m not totally convinced that it’s worth my ten dollars, but what I am sure of is that all this talk about mattresses has made me very sleepy.  That’s probably not the effect that first-time feature film writer-director Matt Aselton was going for, huh?
