Big Nothing is a British film about an amateur scam artist (Simon Pegg), a recently fired call centre worker (David Schwimmer) and a young woman who attempt to blackmail a reverend in order to get a large proportion of his savings.
Firstly, I have to say that hearing Simon Pegg doing an American accent is really weird, and in truth quite annoying.
This film as well was quite annoying, due to the fact that there were constantly hitches and mistakes made in the friends’ apparently ‘fool-proof’ plan, which made it a little difficult to watch.
I found this film quite funny at points, and I think that the actors in the film all fulfilled their roles very well, and the finale, where all hell basically breaks loose amongst the friends was completely ridiculous yet hilarious in my opinion.
The story was also very funny and original, which made it a pleasant surprise for what seemed like a stereotypically chaotic movie to me, so that’s why I’m giving it 7.2.
