Once upon a time, there lived a tiny, insecure man who learned the only way he could make his enormous ego feel comfortable in his teeny, tiny body was to embarrass, humiliate, and torture others. He thought he was a master of disguise, fooling others into believing he was a big man. Yet he was only fooling himself, and through time his unconscionable behavior repulsed and repelled everyone. If his heart was three or three-hundred sizes too small, it didn't matter by then because no one was around to even care... Written by

A comedy that celebrates the good side of human nature
This film is about a swindler learning to be tough to prepare for gong to prison, and while in prison he creates a series of changes for the better.
Stan worries about being raped in prison, so he get a Kung Fu master to teach him martial arts to protect himself. In no time, he becomes the king in the prison, with the ability to command all the gangs. The plot is straightforward, simple and easy to digest. Three are many funny jokes and hilarious scenes. There are some gross humour, but they all stop before becoming cheap or disgusting. The best of all is the positive message about tolerance and acceptance. He manages to promote peace and unity in the prison, which is heartwarming and uplifting.
Rob Schneider should be commended for making this human and uplifting comedy. Just like his previous films, his characters have hilarious adventures, but in the end there is a touching message that brings out the good side of human nature. "Big Stan" is a warm and funny film. I recommend it.
