Film synopsis: 
Paul (Patton Oswalt), a 35-year-old parking garage attendant from Staten Island, is the self-described "world's biggest New York Giants fan." He spends his off hours calling in to local sports radio station 760 The Zone, where he rants in support of his beloved team, often against his mysterious on-air rival, Eagles fan Philadelphia Phil (Michael Rapaport). His family berates him for doing nothing with his life, but they don't understand the depth of his love of the Giants. One night, Paul and his best friend Sal (Kevin Corrigan) spot a Giants star linebacker (Jonathan Hamm) and decide to approach him—but things do not go as planned. The fallout of this chance encounter brings Paul's world crashing down around him as his family, the team, the media and the authorities engage in a tug of war over Paul, testing his allegiances and calling into question everything he believes in. Following up his first filmed screenplay (The Wrestler), writer/director Robert Siegel once again demonstrates a unique and potent vision of the human experience, in all of it its harsh truths and hopeful humanity.

Read San Francisco Chronicle interview with Patton Oswalt http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2009/10/18/PKJU1A2AHV.DTL “BIG FAN is a poignant, dead-on character study, an examination of a crisis in the life of the most die-hard of die-hard New York Giants football fans.” - Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times "Touchdown" - New York Observer
