Big Fish is a three-ring circus of sometimes outlandish situations andcharacters, yet Burton makes it all seem so plausible, so middle class, thatsome part of you aches to accept.
“We were so pleased with our meal at Big Fish. First off, the food was amazing. But the service was best part of the experience. My wife has Celiac Disease so she is allergic to gluten. Big Fish had a extensive gluten-free menu and the server was well informed. The manager even came over to double check with us on our order. This is the best experience we had with gluten free dining, ever! Thank you so much.”

Running time: Approx: 125 mins.If Big Fish were a CD, you could call it `Tim Burton's Greatest Hits,' becauseof the various references, both overt and subliminal, that flows through themovie.Years ago, young Edward (Ewan McGregor), "a man intended for largerthings," embarked on an odyssey which began with a gentle giant (MatthewMcGrory) and stumbling into the idyllic town of Specter. Subsequently, hebefriended some quirky, colorful characters, including a circus ring-master(Danny DeVito), a rueful bank robber (Steve Buscemi), and conjoined twins (Ada& Arlene Tai). Then there's the fanciful courtship of his wife (Alison Lohman)at Auburn. But most influential was the enchanted witch (Helena Bonham Carter)who told him that "the biggest fish in the river gets that way by never beingcaught," a philosophy he quickly embraced."Big Fish" (2003)Review by Marshall GarveyRating (0 to 5): 4 Grade: B+Starring Ewan McGregor (Young Edward Bloom), Albert Finney (OlderEdward Bloom), Billy Crudup (William Bloom), Jessica Lange (OlderSandra Bloom), Alison Lohman (Young Sandra Bloom), Marion Cotillard(Josephine), Helena Bonham Carter (Jenny), Steve Buscemi (NortherWinslow), Danny DeVito (Amos Calloway)Directed by Tim BurtonProduced by Bruce Cohen, Dan Jinks, and Richard D.

We enjoyed every single item and commend the owners and most of all their staff for making this a most memorable and enjoyable day. Thank you again for all your hard work, it certainly showed in every way!!! I will continue to spread the word. Thank you again.Candy Coated Fury is Reel Big Fish's first album of newly recorded original material in five years. Overall, it's the seventh in the band's twenty year history, and it feels as vital and vitriolic as RBF's foundational releases. The record opens with the huge sing-along vocal, balmy horns, and hyperactive ska groove of "Everyone Else Is An Asshole." The track is an exceptional distillation of Reel Big Fish's classic euphorically-juvenile ska punk. The stately arena riffs in "I Dare You To Break My Heart" reference cock rock, new wave, and soul without sacrificing one iota of RBF's signature simmering skank. "I listen to the Darkness a lot; it was only a matter of time till I wrote a song like this! I can't really sing as high as that guy so this song sounds more like Kiss, if Kiss was a Motown band that played ska," Barrett says, detailing the song's diverse stylistic touchstones. The anthemic "I Know You Too Well To Like You Anymore" features some of Barrett's finest cutely cruel lyrics. "I think that is an amazing bad-relationship song," he laughs. "I really captured the hateful love of two people who were once madly in love, but have been together so long, they can't stand the sight of each other anymore but still say 'they drive me crazy, and I hate this and this about them, but I love them.'" No RBF album would be complete without playfully irreverent 1980s covers. The band rounds things out ska-ifying the Wonderstuff's "Don't Let Me Down Gently" and When In Rome's "The Promise."
