Big White, The (2005, USA/CDN/NZL/GER) C-105m. ** D: Mark Mylod. Starring Robin Williams, Holly Hunter, Giovanni Ribisi, Tim Blake Nelson, W. Earl Brown, Woody Harrelson, Alison Lohman. Attempt at a cult movie about loser Williams, who hopes to cash in insurance money for his lost brother. When he finds a dead body in the trash, he decides to 'use' it for his purpose but hasn't reckoned with company's geeky agent Ribisi, who smells something fishy. Some funny scenes, mostly due to the professional cast, but just a tad too forced and contrived. Music by Mark Mothersbaugh.
