“Fraser delivers the best work of his career” – Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times
“Brendan Fraser is on the march to Oscar. That’s how astonishing he is as a morbidly obese recluse in this deeply moving character study. Accusations that wearing a fat suit diminishes his tour de force performances are nonsense. This is essential viewing.” – Peter Travers, ABC News
