Synopsis


Big Fan
A parking garage attendant and lifelong New York Giants fan finds his life spinning out of control following an altercation with his favorite football player in this darkly comic drama starring Patton Oswalt. For 35-year-old Staten Island native Paul Aufiero (Oswalt), sports are a religion. Paul still lives with his mother, he's the self-proclaimed "world's biggest New York Giants fan," and he spends most of his spare time calling in to the local sports radio station 760 "The Zone," where he can frequently be heard bickering with his contentious on-air nemesis Philadelphia Phil (Michael Rapaport), a fervent Eagles fan. Berated by his family for his obsessive love of sports, Paul retorts that they simply cannot appreciate the responsibility that goes with being the New York Giants' number one fan. One night, Paul and his best friend, Sal (Kevin Corrigan), spot Giants linebacker Quantrell Bishop (Jonathan Hamm) at a local gas station and impulsively follow his SUV to a Manhattan strip club. Once inside, the two friends bask quietly in the presence of football greatness before cautiously approaching their idol. When things don't go as planned and Paul winds up in the hospital, the resulting media frenzy finds him questioning everything he believes in just as his beloved team begins preparing for a late-season showdown with the Eagles. Former Onion scribe and Wrestler screenwriter Robert D. Siegel makes his feature directorial debut with this film, which he also scripted. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    If you're a fan of blockbusters only, it might not be for you, but this is a GREAT Indie movie and character study. Patton plays a sports fanatic whose only joy in life is calling in to a sports talk show nightly. There are people this obsessed out there! ... I loved every minute of it. Patton now has roles in many movies, probably because of this great performance. Also check out "Ratatouille" and "Finest Hour" (stand-up).

    Successful comedian Patton Oswalt stars in this quality movie about a man and his favorite football team. Quality movies like this come around once in a blue moon. Patton's acting abilities are fantastic. The writer, director, and producer of this flick deserve AWARDS. In an ocean of dumb movies and pathetic plot-lines, this film stands out as a 5-star movie.

    Don't Bother Watching

    This movie was boring, dull, drawn-out, humorless, and down right agonizing to watch. I kept thinking maybe something would happen, maybe it would pick up, maybe it'd get funny - never happened! This film is a plain waste of time.
