Michael J. Fox,
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 two F-16s fly with their gear down. When scrambled, an F-16 pilot will retract his gear as soon as the plane is airborne. This is not an error. Jet aircraft fly much faster than the turboprop passenger plane. In order to stay behind the plane, they would be configured to fly as slowly as possible, thus lowering the landing gear to increase drag. See more »

So, what's the plan? Through the front?
Yeah. "It's Matt Arnold. I'm here to kill your daughter, Jenny."
No, we gotta go over the wall, dickweed. I just she doesn't see this stupid turdmobile.

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.
