About the Movie

The laughs come fast and furious as Tim Allen (Home Improvement, Galaxy Quest) and Rene Russo (Showtime, The Thomas Crown Affair) star in a film from Barry Sonnenfeld, director of Get Shorty and Men In Black. Based on humorist Dave Barry's best-selling first novel, Big Trouble follows the comedic chaos created when a mysterious suitcase that threatens the security of Miami changes the lives of a divorced dad, an unhappy housewife, 2 hit men, a pair of street thugs, 2 love-struck teens, 2 FBI men, and a psychedelic toad. There is something for everyone no matter who is looking for Big Trouble -- and in the end, all-star comedy conquers all.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Like an overloaded aircraft at that security-challenged airport, Big Trouble moves forward in fits and starts but never manages to achieve sufficient momentum for a smooth, satisfying liftoff. – Joe Leydon, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: A playful trifle that feels so much like a genial knockoff of Get Shorty that it might as well be called Get Shorter. – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: I laughed. I didn't respect myself, or the movie, one bit after that. – Andrew O'Hehir,, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: One funny movie. – Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post, Jul 16, 2008

Make this Movie Available for Sale

Love this movie. When will it be for sale on iTunes????

Please Make This Available to Buy

This movie is remarkable. With it's collection of quirky, idiotic and otherwise completely insane characters. Delightfully bizarre this is definitely one of my favourites. With Martha Stewart jokes, foot fetishes, crazy criminals, and a devotion to Fritos it's thoroughly entertaining.

I am VERY disappointed however that this movie is only available for rent. I beg, I plead, I implore iTunes to make this available to Buy. Sooner is better!

this is my favorite movie

this is the funniest movie i've ever seen. gotta have those fritos.. :D
