Big Fish (2003)
IT'S AN OOMPA LOOMPA!
So basically: Will Bloom hasn't talked to his father in three years, but when he gets word his father is dying, he and his pregnant wife go to visit him. Will was always angry at his father for telling elaborate stories of his life and he just wants to figure out the truth before his father dies. Told in flashbacks and narrative, the story of Edward Bloom is revealed.
It has the oompa loompa from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. How cool is that? The awesome factor of this movie is slightly taken away by Miley Cyrus - I'll leave it up to you to spot her (she's really only on screen for, like, 5 minutes). And The Penguin! from Batman - yes I kno Danny DeVito has been in many things, like Matilda! Anyway, this is defs the best Tim Burton film, as I have already mentioned my distaste for him. And Ewan McGregor, who unfortunately did not get naked in this film, but there was a naked chick twice, so we can forgive him.
This movie brings the audience into a fantastical world which is still somewhat believable - it's supposed to be believable stories with a little bit of flare! Should be on the list and you should watch it. Yes. Right now. Shoo!
Ziggi seal of approval!
