This movie obviously isn't as popular as Pirates of the Caribbean. But it's still pretty good.

I believe this is one of the best movies that I have ever seen in my entire life. It's got such great meaning to it and all you have to is look into the scenarios and such. Recommended for EVERYONE. A must see. It's all about life as we know it.

This is one of my favourite movies, it's so sweet and fantastic, it's a story about life, about dreams and about love. Simply wonderful.

One of Tim Burton's best movies. It's one of my favorites. It's so Tim Burton-like! Great, imaginative and original.

I love this move, I watch it every day. The story is so good and it kind of makes it seem real.

WOW! This is definitely a Tim Burton classic. I love this film so much. It's so sweet and I cried at the end. A lovely film for all ages. And isn't Ewan Mcgregor the most gorgeous guy you have ever seen!

So all of the stories were true? Or not? It makes me think harder than "the prestige".

Big Fish is an adventure that you have to look deep into and understand the true meaning of it. This movie also sends you very powerful message about life overall.

I'm not sure how rating this movie's popularity compared to Pirates of the Caribbean reflects the quality of either film. I have used this film with students in class, and I still find something new to make me think every time I see it. Not the bestest bestest film ever, but probably a future cult classic, perhaps more.

This script is almost the same as the movie for it which is good. Although I didn't quite get the fantasy part of the show to me this movie is one of my favorites because of the relationship between Edward and Jenny it was sweet looking at them also love the part when Jenny was about to kiss him that part was memorable. Love the Movie even the fantasy of it all.

I love the story of this movie. Ha ha I could hardly recognize Helena Bonham- Parker with all that prosthetic make-up. I'm surprised to see young Miley Cyrus, too. This movie is one of my favorite from Tim Burton's. The others were Sleepy Hollow, Edward Scissorhands, Alice in Wonderland, and Batman.

Dallas (10 out of 10 )
This movie is Tim Burton's masterpiece. A blend of Magical Realism and Southern Gothic, Big Fish offers viewers a bounty of themes: the importance of storytelling in our lives; the acceptance of our loved ones for who they are, rather than what we ant them to be; the acceptance of those in society who are "different;" discovering one's destiny; and of course, one's devotion to one's true love. Absolutely brilliant.

Had to use a film for our english task- topic was "Belonging." Thought of this, straight away. Great film, gets more meaningful on every watch through.

Mars (2 out of 10 )
John August always cites this as if it's some big achievement, but the movie is mediocre, not because of Mr. Burton. August might want to take some of his own pompous advice, or just admit the "rules" aren't as important as he espouses.
