A down-on-his-luck movie agent (Billy Crystal) goes to a movie site in Romania to be with his only client, his former paperboy. But once he gets there, the kid tells him he is getting a big time agent and that he is fired. Despondent, the agent roams the countryside until he loses control of his car and overturns into a pond where he seemingly is going to drown until a pair of gigantic hands pulls him free of the car. Later he awakens in a monastery and discovers that a 7-1/2' man (NBA player Gheorge Muresan) rescued him. Money dances in front of the agent as he figures ways to get him back to America and into the movies. The giant is only interested in getting to Gallup to see his childhood girl friend. First the agent gets him a small role in the Romanian-filmed movie which earns his plane fare. Then he takes him to Las Vegas where he convinces Steven Seagal (in a cameo as himself) to include the giant in a new action film. Written by

Billy Crystal originally wanted to play the role of the titular "Giant," but was convinced by producers that he would be better as Sammy Kamin. See more »

I usually don't read others comments before I review a movie, but for this
one I did. Mixed feelings by others. Some enjoyed it, some absolutely
hated it. Both were right to do so. I liked it. It definitely wasn't a
"great" movie. I think your reaction to this movie really depends on what
you expect going in. It's billed as a comedy, but really it's not very
funny so don't expect too much laughter. It is, however, mildly amusing and
heart warming. Most importantly, it's clean enough to be an entertaining
family movie. Don't expect a deep thought provoker, or a hysterical side
splitter, but just watch it. I believe someone else described it as
"predictable fluff", which is true but that doesn't have to be a bad thing
all the time. It's a nice movie so don't end up hating it because you
expected too much.
