3.0 out of 5 stars Underrated comedy-drama August 2, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
I think this movie suffered from a misleading ad campaign which made it look like a slapstick comedy. It's not.
It's adult comedy-drama, and a pretty good one. Crystal, the ultimate cynic, slowly becomes best friends with his giant, the ultimate innocent. And there are actually a fair amount of laughs along the way.
It helps to know that this picture was inspired by the late Andre the Giant, who worked with Crystal on "The Princess Bride." Giants' lives are never easy, and that's why this picture has to be serious as well as fun.
I have the feeling this picture may play better on video. If you like funny-sad pictures, check it out.

4.0 out of 5 stars ... August 6, 2002
By A Customer
Format:DVD
After reading the reviews, I had to respond. I really enjoyed this movie. A lot of people seem to be missing the entire point of the movie (as well as the storyline). Apparently a movie with Billy Crystal must be all hilarity and no poignancy for people to enjoy it.
Maybe advertising is to blame, but I was lucky enough to not hear much about it when it was released. With no expectations in mind, I thought the movie was great -- and Billy Crystal does a decent job taking on a dramatic role. Muresan does surprisingly well with his role as well, concidering the horrible screen talents of other famous-sports-players-put-in-movie types. I would recommend this to anyone...as long as they don't expect Crystal in a stand-up-comedic routine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! July 1, 2000
Format:DVD
My Giant is very funny! Billy Crystal is his usual self in this movie. The same comic personality like in all the rest of his movies. This is a wonderful movie. It also has drama. Very few movies possess the qualitites of making you laugh and cry, and making it work. This does though. If you are a Billy Crystal fan, you will love this!

3.0 out of 5 stars BIG STAR ON THE HORIZON January 16, 2006
Format:DVD
The relationship between self-centered agent Billy Crystal and real-life NBA star Gheorghe Muresan is the main reason to watch this otherwise sentimental, few laughs comedy. Crystal is his usual competent self in a role obviously written with him in mind. In his film debut, Muresan brings an affable presence in his role as a 7 1/2 ft. giant Crystal stumbles on while visiting his current client in Romania. The young actor (Rider Strong) fires Crystal and Crystal decides to put the rather naive giant into the same movie. Muresan agrees only to find the love his youth who now lives in Galloop, USA. (Gallup, New Mexico). A subplot involves Crystal's failed marriage with Kathleen Quinlan (who doesn't get to do a whole lot, but is always watchable). Martial arts star Steven Segal plays himself, and Joanna Pacula appears as the rather disappointing love of Muresan's life. Hokey and often trite, MY GIANT is fun to watch because of its two stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars I found it to be very heartwarming and touching. December 6, 1998
By A Customer
Format:DVD
"My Giant" is a movie about a person with a giant heart. He was sensitive and loyal to the girl he loved. Through 23 years without seeing her, he was faithful and stayed faithful to the end. When the Lord of Lord Jesus said " I demand you to love one another", this movie was a fair example.

1.0 out of 5 stars Billy Crystal at his worst!
I love Billy Crystal! But I hated this movie! I will always hate it! How does a man so talented as a comedian go do a drama and expect to excell? It was a poor attempt at a movie!
