"Un tapiz de historias entrelazadas, tanto reales como exageradas, El Gran Pez cuenta la vida de Edward Bloom y aquellos que lo aman. Incluso aún cuando él no cree siempre en cada palabra que dice, para Edward lo importante es la forma en que lo dice. Alser un niño de ocho años confinado a una cama debido a una aceleración sobrenatural en el crecimiento, Edward se ocupa leyendo la Enciclopedia Mundial. Él está especialmente interesado con un artículo acerca del pez dorado, del cual aprende que "si el pez dorado es colocado en una pecera pequeña, permanece reducido de tamaño pero, con más espacio, el pez puede duplicar, triplicar o quizá cuadruplicar su talla." Diez años después, después de convertirse en uno de los jóvenes más populares de Ashton, Carolina del Sur, él se percata de que, al igual que el pez dorado, para poder crecer necesita dejar su casa y explorar el mundo. Y así comienza un viaje improbable y mítico. Muchos años e incontables aventuras después, Bloom (Albert Finney) es un reconocido narrador, pero las fabulosas historias de Bloom encantan a todos con excepción de su hijo Will (Billy Crudup), quien también se ha ido de su casa pero, en este caso, para librarse de la considerable sombra de su padre. Cuando Edward se enferma y su esposa Sandra (Jessica Lange) trata de reconciliarlos, Will se embarca en una travesía personal tratando de separar el mito de la realidad de la vida de su padre."--Sitio web de HolaCine
