It's a labored, needy comedy. The strain shows.

It's the kind of movie you can't quite recommend because it is all windup and not much of a pitch, yet you can't bring yourself to dislike it.

perfectly enjoyable, instantly forgettable, nothing to write home about.

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

April 12, 2002
Despite its promising cast of characters, Big Trouble remains a loosely tied series of vignettes which only prove that 'zany' doesn't necessarily mean 'funny.'
April 3, 2002
The filmmakers keep pushing the jokes at the expense of character until things fall apart.
April 8, 2002
... Big Trouble produces only a very few small chuckles.

Isn't it a bit early in his career for director Barry Sonnenfeld to do a homage to himself? And it's a lousy one at that.

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?

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.

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.

The big problem with Big Trouble, despite a fine cast and director, is that the damn thing isn't funny.

Further proof that Sonnenfeld's career, brought to a screeching halt with the gaseous and pointless Wild Wild West, continues in the downward spiral.

Contradicts itself because it's a ramshackle comedy that's both rowdy and neatly pressed.

April 5, 2002
What director Barry Sonnenfeld surely intended to be farce now only seems forced, and even actors as self-sufficient as Allen and Russo seem utterly flummoxed.

There are so many self-consciously screwy conceits begging for laughs in this lunatic fringe Miami Vice, the prize for crudest is anyone's call.
