Movie Info

Deuce Bigalow star Rob Schneider writes and stars in this comedy about a nerdy con man whose swindling ways ultimately land him a stiff prison sentence. Terrified at the prospect of being raped while serving time, the diminutive convict-to-be enlists the aid of a respected kung-fu expert in teaching him how to properly defend himself. Once inside, however, he finds his kung-fu serving as a catalyst for peace between the many warring factions. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

I wasted two valuable hours of my life on Big Stan -- don't make the same mistake.

Prison rape comedy is offensive and a waste of time.

Common Sense Media

A prison comedy that boldly confronts the "hilarity" of male rape, Big Stan isn't as offensive as it imagines itself to be, and nowhere near as silly as I'm sure Rob Schneider hoped for. It's a just a forgettable, unfunny waste of time.

If you're not a fan, then this won't do much to convert you, unless you, like Schneider, have a dubious obsession with anal rape jokes.

This may be the first mainstream Hollywood comedy where the anus drives the movie -- and I don't mean that as a double entendre.

2008 has, with one or two exceptions, been a diabolical year for American comedy, and Big Stan hits rock bottom.

some good laughs to be had... Schneider's best film since The Hot Chick

If you leave all your grown up sensibilities at the door and fill up on popcorn while watching Big Stan, preferably in a crowd of your like-minded mates, you'll probably have a roaring good time.

Whether you love him or hate him, your opinion of Rob Schneider will remain unchanged by the end.

Audience Reviews for Big Stan

Very silly and predictable film that only seems to exsist to live out Schneider's fantasy of being a movie hard man for once. Although the fight scenes are actually pretty good and not spoofed too much, Schneider does actually seem to do the moves and is in good shape. Carradine is very hammy and rather poor, while the rest is just alot of gay sex jokes which does get kinda worrying after awhile.

So stupid it becomes likeabe. The stupidity is a plus as Rob Schneider is sentenced to jail and fearing rape while he is on the inside, he decides to learn martial arts. For the majority of the film it doesn't make enough of it's bizarre premise. There's a few good jokes and some excellent moments, such as Schneider convincing the other convicts to give up rape. It actually handles race issues better thanmany serious dramas, using comedy to really highlight the absurdity. Schneider is fine in the role and I think he is actually an underated talent. At least he can be more contained than Sandler, Ferrel or carrey (in comedy films at least). A stupid film for lighthearted folks.

Big Stan has it?s fair share of funny moments, filled with adult humour. This un-PC film has a realistic slant on prison life, whilst obviously putting a comical spin on it.

I feel it takes a little while to warm up, there were only a few laugh out loud moments, but I still found it a great original watch.
