Rick Moranis is a great actor and is very funny in this movie.

When that attempt gropes toward the inner pain of dark comedy, the film may have merit.

I loved this movie ever since I was a kid, and it's still funny.

An excellent comedy, with great casting. Bullying is a serious topic, and it is shown as such, but there is plenty of comedy to keep it from being too depressing or dark of a movie. The behind the scenes look at teachers' lives is priceless. The final scenes are extreme and weird; for a while I thought it was a dream sequence. More could have been done at the end, showing the developing friendship between the former bully/victim. But all in all, it is great to watch.

An Divorce Father (Rick Morains), who is a Professional Writer and Novelist has come to have back to his Child-Hood home for Teaching. But when he meets again his Much-Feared Childhood Bully (Tom Arnold), everything in the Past between Them are Back in a Whole New Way.
Directed by Steve Miner (House, Halloween:H20, Lake Placid) and Written by Mark Steven Johnson (Daredevil) made a clever, often Misfired Satire of his Earlier Written Film-Grumpy Old Men. Morains and Arnold are Big Time Fun in this Underrated Comedy, even when the movie turns a Comedic Thriller at the last Third of the flick. This film was a Flop in Theaters but It did better on Video. Grade:B+.

It had been a long time since I watched this movie, and I finally got to refresh my memory. I loved this movie ever since I was a kid, and it's still funny. Moranis and Arnold were perfect together. When David Leary was a kid, he was constantly bullied by Ross Bigger (Fang) When David and his family moves away, he tells the police that Ross stole a moon rock. Years later, David and his son return to town and David becomes the new creative writing teacher. He finds out that Ross is also a teacher at the same school and continues to bully him again. David soon realizes that he must stop running and face his demon once and for all. I highly recommend BIG BULLY!!!

i personaly think the film is great. Not hard to understand. The main plot is that two school kids (rick moranis and tom arnold) dont get along with eachover at school and they grow up and both work at a school while rick is still scared of tom and then toms child is getting bullied by ben (ricks child) but of course, as you could imagine,........ it all ends hapily ever after!

David Leary(Rick Moranis) and his young son Ben move to Minnesota from California where David takes a teaching position at an elementary school that Ben will be attending. David himself is a Minnesota native and attended the same school when he was a boy. The Learys' new neighbor is Art Lundstrom(Jeffrey Tambor) and his wife Betty(Faith Prince). The Lundstroms immediately welcomed the Learys upon the Learys' arrival. "We won't need the Weather Channel while they're living next door to us.",David tells Ben. Art noticed some ugly cracks in the Learys' deck and offered some of his stain for replenishing the deck. Art says,"Make sure you apply a few extra coats otherwise the moisture will seep into the wood and rot it from the inside.". Art tells about the biting sunfish at Lake Rebecca. Also he offers his tuba to Ben. Ben hates Minnesota and would rather stay in California. Ben misses his mother who is David's ex-wife. The next morning,Art is chopping wood in the pleasant sunshine. David's childhood acquaintance Roscoe Bigger(Tom Arnold) comes along and continues to pick on David,despite they're both now adults. Don Knotts is the school principal who has Ben and Roscoe's son Kirby in his office for fighting. Then there's a circulating rumor that David killed Roscoe in a waterfall. David himself believed he committed the murder. All he did was push Roscoe with a long piece of plywood into the waterfall. David tells Art late one evening,while Art was pruning hedges,that David killed shop teacher Roscoe. "Everyone knows you two had a twisted relationship.",Art tells David. Julianne Phillips plays David's girlfriend,who also teaches at the school. During childhood,Roscoe stole what's called a "moonrock" because of his aspiration of becoming an astronaut,which never happened.Read more ›
