Not as funny as 'The In Laws'
24 October 2006 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

'Big Trouble' is an unfortunate letdown, it reunites the dream casting of Alan Arkin and Peter Falk, who first paired off together in the classic comedy 'The In-Laws, Sadly this re teaming is not as funny as one would expect, Andrew Bergman, allegedly was inline to direct this, but Bergman, unfortunately dropped out, and was replaced by the father of independent cinema John Cassevetes,

Granted there are some amusing scenes with the pair,but somewhere out there on the cutting room floor, there's a lot more to answer for, Plot has Arkin doing his usual sch-tick as a hapless insurance salesman trying to get his sons in to prestigious Yale, he gets a lot more than he bargains for when he becomes embroiled in a bizarre insurance fraud scam,
