Faithful to the events in Barry's novel, lifts a good deal of his witty dialogue, and recruits a proven cast of laugh-winners. Why, then, is it so resolutely unfunny?

The worst thing someone could say about "Big Trouble" is that it's too much like "Get Shorty," which is one of the best reasons to go see the film

Sprawling comedy has a few laughs in it -- and the specter of recent events hanging over it.

Director Barry Sonnenfeld unites an incredibly unique and charismatic ensemble cast for this witty adaptation of Dave Barry's 1998 novel.

...a highly enjoyable romp that is as multi-faceted as it is tightly constructed.

Big Trouble is one of those great big silly capers that fails at juggling its dark humor while feeling cutesy in its ability to dance around the plot contrivances...derivative, offensive, stylish and smirky crime caper.

Tim Allen is great in his role but never hogs the scenes from his fellow cast, as there are plenty of laughs and good lines for everyone in this comedy.

It's a good thing Tim Allen has Santa Claus to fall back on because any more pictures like this one and he'd be in BIG trouble.

In this clumsy attempt to merge farce with satire, the jokes repeatedly miss the mark.

Huffs like a bus headed uphill while Mr. Sonnenfeld and company shovel on weirdness and hope for the best.

the plot is so amusingly contrived and outlandish in its coincidences that no one could ever mistake it for anything resembling reality

Nothing in Big Trouble occurs for any reason other than to appease director Barry Sonnenfeld's yen for randomly orchestrated cuteness.

Mostly ... Sonnenfeld mishandles the broad part of the comedic formula, preferring repetition to thematic development.

It?s fun, but the book is far, far better.

Jason Lee looks almost beatific as the shaggy, homeless Puggy. This movie is just as hilarious as Dave Barry's quirky book.

brisk and hyperactive. Some scenes move so quickly, it looks like Sonnenfeld forced the cast to consume large amounts of espresso between each take.
