Although I had never heard of humorist Dave Barry before I saw this movie, I had a great time watching 'Big Trouble'.Director Barry Sonnenfeld 'Men in Black', 'Get Shorty' does a great job of juggling the huge ensemble cast, and everyone including Tim Allen are all wonderfully funny and, it must be said, a little bit nuts. I particularly liked Dennis Farina as a hit-man who despises Miami where the story takes place and Zooey Deschanel as a deadpan teenager.'Big Trouble' is outrageous fun for all, and this is a great comic ride.
Brilliant comedy (by a_kuzmenko)
Perfect comedy of situations.Better then book, as it makes better use of supporting actors.Amazing movie, made in old style of comedies. Must-see for all lovers of the comedies.It was most likely harmed by by airport security scene which was found politically incorrect after the 9/11, but its a comedy so I do not see a problem.I would give it 12 out of 10.Very nice review in Russian located here:http://www.exler.ru/films/11-03-2003.htm
One of the funniest comedies ever made (by sixstring-1)
I've seen it dozens of times, and still, I can't help myself but laugh my a** off... Incredibly bright, fresh collection of timeless jokes, gags, and funny situations cleverly bound together by one of Hollywood's most talented comedy directors into a flowing, easy, coherent piece of entertainment. This film's set must have been the most funny workplace ever... I wonder how the actors have managed to do the shooting, there must be tons of blooper reels in store... After reading some comments here, I really wish to have a chat with some of the people, who didn't find this <more>
movie funny... Or better - I'd like to know, what films they regard as being funny, if not "Big Trouble".And my last remark - it's been a very long time since I've heard such a brilliant movie score as James Newton Howard had written for "Big Trouble". Excellent job.
This movie is a movie with several subplots all gelling into one large strange wacky story of nukes, criminals, planes, and Fritos.As a resident of the city of Miami, I loved how this movie incorporates many of the landmarks of the city. Except for a minor error involving "Concourse J" at the Airport, I saw many familiar sights of the city Bayside, American Airlines Arena, Miami International Airport, etc. Anyway, the movie in the beginning is complicated, requiring that the viewer pay close attention. We begin by finding out that a nuclear weapon has found its way into Miami. <more>
After a several scenes, a couple of stupid ex-cons hijack the weapon, and make for the Bahamas. Its up to the good guys to stop the dummies from blowing Miami and yours truly sky-high. While this movie is sidesplittingly funny, I found most of the humor as a big "inside joke". This movie parodies many of the more annoying aspects of Miami. For instance, when Tim Allen's character calls 911, he is greeted by a woman speaking in SPANISH rather than ENGLISH. The security people at the Airport, with that personality that only THEY have. But most hilarious of all, the way Florida Gator fans are portrayed, because when the Gators lose, they really do have nothing to say, because the GATORS SUCK! BTW: I'm an FSU fan.Anywho, this movie is funny, for practical reasons, and for me, personal reasons. But whatever the reason, it deserves more respect than it got from critics. Rent it, and see for yourself.Big Trouble: 4/5
Loved this film thought it had some hilarious moments. (by topoftheline210)
Lots of film buffs I know turned their noses up at this film saying it was too pedestrian but I loved it.Tim Allen's opening sequence ridiculing the advertising business in Florida set the pace.It never let up.Although some of the characters seemed stock their funny moments and scenes more than made up for that deficit.Worth mentioning are the scenes with Stanley Tucci playing a greedy demented businessman suffering a frog fixation.While this ensemble cast works successfully together my Oscar vote goes to Dennis Farina.Along with the warhead he literally stole this film.Several memorable <more>
lines of dialogue including a radio call in show commentary were side splitters.Other scenes to remember include those with a Russian arms dealer/bar owner, a homeless man who resembles Jesus and a couple of mentally deranged ex-cons. If this team makes another film I'll be the first one to stand on line for tickets.
This is the best comedy I've seen in several years. But they didn't spend any money pushing it It opened 2 weeks ago in 9th! I didn't even know it had opened. The cate is great and the plot doesn't wear thin all the way to the climax that's a cross between Dr. Strangelove and Magnolia. If you don't see it this weekend third week--Apr 19th , you'll probably have to hunt it down or wait until it comes out on video/pay-per-view.
A Fun, Frenetic Farce That Didn't Deserve To Be A Bomb! (by dtb)
When my husband and I heard that Barry Sonnenfeld was going to direct the film version of Dave Barry's first novel, we were pretty excited. Both men have a similarly nutty knockabout comic sensibility with a touch of the surreal, and this wacky farce about a motley crew of Miami citizens embroiled in a race to recover an atomic bomb seemed like the perfect vehicle for them to pool their talents on. Well, it was! Hubby and I had a grand time -- but alas, we seemed to be among the very few moviegoers who even gave the flick a chance! I guess it didn't help that BIG TROUBLE's <more>
originally-scheduled December 2001 release was delayed due to worries that a plot involving smuggling an A-bomb through laissez-faire airport security would seem more disturbing than funny after the horrific events of 9/11/2001. Maybe most audiences are still too spooked right now to appreciate the satiric possibilities in Sonnenfeld & Co.'s cynically funny, Billy Wilder-esque treatment of these elements -- but I hope that down the line, folks will give BIG TROUBLE a chance, because really, it's like what might have resulted if Billy Wilder had ever had an opportunity to direct The Marx Brothers. We were laughing throughout! The ensemble cast is superb, from Patrick Warburton and Janeane Garofalo as members of Miami's Finest, to Tom Sizemore and Johnny Knoxville as dunderheaded crooks, to Tim Allen and Rene Russo's chemistry as single well, unhappily married in Russo's case parents who get drawn into the shenanigans when their respective teenage kids Ben Foster and Zooey Deschanel both delightful -- I wouldn't be surprised if these two became big stars someday! accidentally foil a hit on Stanley Tucci hilariously obnoxious as Russo's dreadful second husband by Jack Kehler and Dennis Farina spoofing his earlier role in Sonnenfeld's GET SHORTY adaptation . Everybody gets a moment to shine, even Jason Lee as a hippy-dippy drifter and Sofia Vergara who looks remarkably like a Latina Denise Richards as Tucci's put-upon maid. C'mon, give this unfairly underappreciated gem a chance when it hits home video!
Funny, easy-going comedy to enjoy; no slow times! (by cowgirl-12)
Dave Barry, author of the book, does a really good job of portraying humor about his home town Miami , teenagers, parents, divorce, marriage, autos, airports, difficulties of working in a strange town. The movie is humorous, fun, and moves along quickly. You can enjoy a nice time with it. All the actors do a great job. I think some of my favorite lines have to do with arrivals & departures at the airport! Behind the humor are the scarey foundations of some of the major scenarios of the movie. Can't say what those are; gives too much away. So if you are in need of a comedy to enjoy, <more>
but which may leave a residue of some of the problems of today's world, watch "Big Trouble".
Its been a while since a movie has made me laugh out loud... at home... on DVD without the help of a theater audience to provide a helpful laugh track... but this Dave Barry adaptation did it. The wildly slapstick script keeps its wildly varied cast hopping... and hopping admirably! Tim Allen, Rene Russo, Zooey Deschanel, Ben Foster, Stanley Tucci, Janeane Garafalo, Dennis Farina... heck, the entire ensemble is so good that I would gladly sign on for a sequel... hey Mr. Sonnenfeld, welcome back to funny!
