A chain of events starts with the arrival of a mysterious suitcase in Miami. Arthur Herk, a corrupt business owner, wants to get his hands on the case. At the same time, two hit men want him whacked. Tired of his constant fixation on drinking and television, Herk's wife Anna and daughter Jenny decide to find new love interests in divorced dad Eliot Arnold and his son Matt.

The film was scheduled for release in late 2001. It was delayed after the September 11 attacks, due to terrorist plot lines. See more »
During the Geo test drive, the mountains in the background look suspiciously like those in Los Angeles. Miami isn't near any mountains. See more »
You just cant beat these when they're really fresh. Anyway Elliot Arnold will have to continue this story because I was locked in the trunk of a car for most of it. My name is Puggy and I live in a tree. I hope I didn't ruin anything for you.

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.
