'Big Fish'
(Ewan McGregor, Albert Finney, Billy Crudup, Jessica Lange, et al / PG-13 / 110 mins / Columbia Pictures)

Overview: 'Big Fish' tells of Edward Bloom (Albert Finney), a braggart who has always exaggerated his exploits and experiences as a young man (played by Ewan McGregor), when he left his small town in Alabama for adventures near and far. Nearly everyone has been spellbound by Edward's terrific tall tales over the years everyone but his estranged son (Billy Crudup), who has come home to take care of his dying dad and separate fact from fiction.

Verdict: Mastermind Tim Burton's ultra-snappy 'Big Fish' is a very clever, smart fantasy that targets the child inside every adult, without insulting the intelligence of either. It is just so enriching, so heartwarming, so funny, so touching and so breathtaking, you'll wonder why the king of wackiness didn't branch out sooner! Point in case, this the finest film of Burton's career thus far! 'Big Fish' speaks to our universal desire to live life not necessarily to its fullest, but with wonderment of our very existence. It is definitely a wonderous lesson that should be learnt by all that inhabit this mortal coil we currently reside on.
