You'll especially like this if you are one of those people who is a nexxus for the improbable. The whole plot and premise range from slightly improbable to absolutely impossible--but it works, as does the typical life.
THIS movie, however, is pretty funny! The cast is great, the premise good, the plot moves along well, and there's a lot of laughs throughout.
Highly recommend this movie if you'd like a fast paced comedy with an interesting cast of well played characters.
Kelly's Heroes bombed at the box office because it was a war movie at the peak of the anti-war sentiment inspired by Vietnam. It has since been recognized as a classic comedy.
Similarly, Big Trouble just hit at the wrong time, right after the terrorist attacks of 9/11. But give it time, and it will similarly become recognized as a classic.
If you've read the book, you'll be impressed with the casting, which is almost perfect. Only Puggy seemed a little off, and even that wasn't too bad. Tim Allen is perfect as the protagonist, and he also does the narration, which is excellent. The hitmen (Dennis Farina and Jack Kehler) are just right. I have to give Dennis Farina particular note - he was probably the funniest person in the cast. Barry Sonnenfeld is, of course, a great comedic director, and he keeps the whole thing flowing with good comic timing.
The movie's kind of wacky, but if you read and appreciate Dave Barry's humor columns, then you'll probably love it. If you haven't read the novel, watch for the toad, the goats, Martha Stewart's hallucinagenic image, and, of course, the "garbage disposal". And if you read and liked the novel, you really ought to get this movie.
The film has a quick pace, and editing similar to other recent films like Ocean's 11. The soundtrack is excellent also.
OK, so the gags are a bit silly, and the plot is too coincidental, I understand that. However, when watching it unfold I laughed until my sides hurt, enjoyed every minute, and when it ended I wished it hadn't. This film is simply hilarious! Of special note is the actor from Seinfeld fame replaying the role of Puddy, and he delivers a classic line from the film in that dry "Puddy" style: "Was that a goat"?
Forget the expectations and artistic critiques and simply sit back, relax, and prepare to laugh. Isn't that what comedy's are for anyway?
