Big Trouble is a very underrated quirky comedy directed by Barry Sonnenfeld (The Addams Family, Men in Black, Wild Wild West) and based on  a novel by Dave Barry. Cast is comprised of experienced actors and some rising stars that are now very famous: Zooey Deschanel, Ben Foster… With several different stories all going on at once and such colorful characters this movie is very entertaining and filled with awesome gags and jokes. It’s not a dark humor comedy, but something that I can’t quite put my finger on, but definitely know that I like. Very easygoing and relaxing Big Trouble is one of those movies that you can watch every few years with your friends who haven’t seen it already. Although I believe it is amusing to watch how the writer and director sees Miami, I think that this card has been played too hard.

Arthur Herk messed up when he decided to steal money from mafia, and now there’s a hit on his head.

Meanwhile a mysterious suitcase arrives in Miami, and soon this whole thing will start to involve more and more people, including the FBI, police, Russian criminals, hippies, common criminals… How this hectic situation will be resolved is up to you to find out…
