Plot & Details
'The Giant Mechanical Man' is a charming comedic romance between Janice (Jenna Fischer), a woman in her 30's who has yet to learn how to navigate adulthood, and Tim (Chris Messina), a devoted street performer who finds that his unique talents as a "living statue" don't exactly pay the bills. Out of work and crashing with her overbearing sister (Malin Akerman), Janice is on the receiving end of well-intentioned but misguided pressure to date an egotistical self-help guru (Topher Grace). Everyone seems to know what's best for Janice, but Tim helps her find her own voice and realize that it only takes one person to make you feel important.
