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.
