The New Haven Nose Won't Hate On Ed Sheeran

Jul 21, 2017

The Big Sick, written by Emily V. Gordon and Kumail Nanjiani (who you know from "Silicon Valley"), tells the "awkward true story" of their courtship and stars Nanjiani as a version of himself. According to Rotten Tomatoes, the movie proves "the standard romcom formula still has some fresh angles left to explore." The Nose weighs in.

And then: What's with all the hating on Ed Sheeran? No, like: Really. The Nose doesn't get it.
