Big Trouble (2002)

Synopsis: Honestly, I don’t know where to begin... the plot is more complicated than um...this thing.

What Did I Learn?: If you’re looking to obtain your teenaged son’s love and respect, buying a Geo Metro won’t be much help.

You Might Like This Movie If: You only glanced at the VHS jacket and assumed you bought Big Trouble in Little China.

Really?: If the mob is trying to kill you for stealing money from them, why exactly would you want to purchase a black market missile? Is that a practical weapon for self-defence? If you’re looking for evidence you can present to the cops, wouldn’t photocopied documents be a much, much better idea?

Rating: Big Trouble is a fun little madcap comedy even though it contains a few too many characters (some of whom get lost in the shuffle), and most of the film’s build-up is tossed aside in order to end with a big chase. Not bad, but not great. 7/10 stars.
