Rotten Tomatoes: 19%
If you like sight gags (particularly ones that draw attention to height differential), then My Giant is your North by Northwest. This film stars the punitive Billy Crystal alongside former NBA-sponsored satellite tower Gheorghe Muresan, who is more than seven and a half feet tall. As far as foreign-born NBA centers go, Muresan is one of the most prolific names in Hollywood.
