Andrew is a moderately successful TV actor living in Los Angeles. He hasn't been home to the Garden State in nine years. Even the 3,000 miles has not separated him from the domineering father Andrew left. Stunned to find himself home for his mother's funeral, "Large" finds old acquaintances around every corner, even as he does his best to avoid the inevitable confrontation with his father. By a twist of fate Large meets Sam, a girl who is everything he isn't. Her warmth and fearlessness gives Large the courage to open his heart to the joy and pain that is life.

DVD, region 1, widescreen presentation; Dolby Digital.

When this first came out, I absolutely loved it. But now I find it actually kind of hard to watch. Natalie Portman's character as a Manic Pixie Dream Girl (MPDG) is completely obnoxious. Maybe it's the fact that this movie was the catalyst setting off a string of copycat movies where a quirky girl's entire purpose in life is to teach some boring guy how to appreciate life that makes it so unbearable now. There are still some moments that make me smile, and there are some good truths in it. But maybe it's just better suited for high schoolers or people in their early 20s.


Large goes home, meets Sam, she takes on the world with pride. Good movie.
