Big Bang Theory star Jim Parsons' new movie is finally available to watch in the UK
2023/07/05

The Big Bang Theory star Jim Parsons' new movie Spoiler Alert is now available to watch in the UK.

The film is based on the acclaimed memoir of American journalist Michael Ausiello and tells the story of Michael (Parsons), who discovers that Kit, his partner for the last 14 years, has a terminal illness.

Our Girl actor Ben Aldridge plays Kit, and the two are joined by an all-star cast including The Amazing Spider-Man's Sally Field and Law & Order: SVU's Bill Irwin (who play Kit's parents), plus Queer Eye star Antoni Porowski.

"The story moves beyond misfortune towards finding a new purpose in life," reads the official synopsis. "In the light of such devastating news, Michael, along with Kit's parents, reclaims what really matters in life."

The movie was released in the US in December last year, but is now available to UK audiences via streaming platforms  Prime VideoiTunes, and  Microsoft Store.

Reviews for Spoiler Alert were initially mixed, originally receiving a Rotten Tomatoes score of 69% in December 2023, which has now risen to an impressive 85% since – earning it a certified 'Fresh' rating.

Entertainment Weekly praised the film's director Michael Showalter for his efforts, who's had previous success with films such as The Eyes of Tammy Faye.

"Some unexpected twists are successful (a multi-cam sitcom setting provides Michael's backstory) while others are jarring (one hard left turn in the final act, in particular), but Showalter ultimately succeeds because he never loses focus of the heart at the core of his story," its review noted.

Meanwhile, The Guardian gave a less favourable review, saying the film coasts along "in the very middle of the road", adding: "Spoiler alert: we deserve better."

However, Spoiler Alert fared better with audiences, who have given it a 97% rating on Rotten Tomatoes at time of writing.
