Puggy(Jason Lee, who eats a Frito and says)- you cant beat these when their fresh
Based on Dave Barry's novel, "Big Trouble," star Tim Allen (television's "Home Improvement") as a former Pulitzer Prize winning reporter on the Miami Herald (where Barry has been a reporter for years) who has seen his luck run dry. Now working for an advertising firm, Elliot Arnold (Allen) is having father-son problems with his offspring, Matt, (Ben Foster of "Get Over It"), is single, and having problems producing a successful advertising campaign.
One evening, after Matt gets himself in trouble with the law with a squirt gun incident at the home of a classmate (Zooey Deschanel of "The New Guy") Elliot meets an unhappily married woman (Rene Russo of "Lethal Weapon 3") and her obnoxious, rude husband Arthur Herk (Stanley Tucci of "Maid in Manhattan"). Little do they know that two hitman (Dennis Farina and Jack Kehler) are after Arthur due to his knowledge of too much information in a government scandal.
Throughout the film, other supporting characters join the chaos that is about to take place, including a drifter name Buggy (Jason Lee of "Mallrats"), the Herk's Peruvian housekeeper Nina (played by Colombian blonde bombshell Sofia Vergara, who is a major celebrity in Latin America), a jaded cop (Janeane Garofalo, "Reality Bites") and two bumbling crooks (Johnny Knoxville and Tom Sizemore) who happened to steal a ticking nuclear bomb they intend to smuggle out of the United States on a flight to the Bahamas and live a life in luxury.
In the tradition of classic screwball comedies, director Barry Sonnenfeld ("Men in Black") captures the zaniness, and comic suspense Barry's novel contained. Unfortunately, when it was released in the spring of 2002, "Big Trouble" never received the deserved attention it should have received due to the events that had taken place in September 2001. Originally scheduled to be released on Friday, September 14, 2001, the film's release was scrapped due to the September 11 attacks in the United States. Due to the sensitivity of a bomb on a plane and a smuggled nuclear device, the studio pushed it's release to the spring. Doing so might have generated some negative publicity for this film, but when it was filming, no one could have predicted that such an evil event would have occurred.
Satisfyingly funny, "Big Trouble" is a comedic rollecoaster of a ride. It is definitely one of 2002's best comedy films.

Tim Allen has starred in a much funnier and involving film than this about a man who takes on a bully at work - Joe Somebody.Buy that instead.
