A weak con man panics when he learns he's going to prison for fraud. He hires a mysterious martial arts guru who helps transform him into a martial arts expert who can fight off inmates who want to hurt or love him.
The fraudulent real state agent Stan is married with his beloved Mindy and has a seven million dollar fortune. When he is arrested for fraud, he is sentenced to three years in prison and his assets are frozen by the justice. However, his crooked lawyer Lew Popper negotiates a six month freedom, and the weak Stan, who is afraid of being raped in prison, hires the specialist in martial arts The Master to teach him self-defense. Six months later, Big Stan is sent to the Oaksburgh State Penitentiary totally confident in his expertise in martial arts. He challenges the violent leaders of the gangs and defeats them, being respected by the inmates and bringing peace in the patio. However, the dirty Warden Gasque has the intention of transforming the penitentiary in a luxury resort, and uses Big Stan knowledge to improve his project, promising to release him sooner using the corrupt penal system.Written by

Stan's lawyer informs him there was a "last minute change" made by the Bureau of Prisons. The Bureau of Prisons ("BOP") governs federal prisons only, but Stan was sentenced to a state prison, which is governed by the state's agency, known only as "Department of Corrections". See more »

Black dudes can't get enough of white women. And don't think a woman of your advancing years will be safe from their advances. No, these big black bucks don't care if you're young or old, skinny or fat. They want your white flesh. They want it bad. Tell you the truth, I'm part black myself. If it wasn't for my wife, I'd be bending you over this desk doing you doggy-style right now.
I'll... I'll take it.

Big Stan wasn't really advertised at all and it just sort of came out into the video stores like it was a terrible movie. I thought that at first, but when I actually watched it I felt that it was surprisingly a funny movie. After seeing other prison comedies like Let's Go To Prison, The Longest Yard, etc. I thought that this would probably not even be as funny as those, but it really was a pretty good movie. Rob Schneider normally works in the most terrible movies of all time, but even though this didn't make it to theaters, it still was enjoyable and worth watching at least one time.
