I like all movies of Schneider, except European Gigolo, a boring and overstretched extension of Deuce Bigalow. In Big Stan, the brilliant Schneider is back, playing an arrested con man who hired a mysterious Kung Fu master to train him against the potential jailhouse rapers he's about to face in six months' time. As expected, he needed to fight not only other prisoners but also the warden and the only other apprentice of his Kung Fu master. If you want some big laughs (Both my wife and I really laughed throughout the movie highly frequently) and dont mind exaggerated Kung Fu acts, this is excellent for you. You will also find the most beautiful and sexiest Jennifer Morrison (the female doctor subordinate in House MD). The supporting actors are great, too. I would say this is the best movie from Schneider so far. Pity for him that it cannot be released on theatres in US. I bet it would have been a big hit. Definitely an excellent choice in the rental store after a hard day's work. Highly recommended!

I liked this Schneider film better than his Animal series and also better than the Gigolo series. I do hate that some of the scenes made it inappropriate for younger kids but overall it's a pretty good and funny film. One surprise and a deviation from other Schneider films was the absence of a cameo by Adam Sandler for it seems that each have a habit of showing up in the other persons films either as a principal actor or in a cameo position. If Adam was worked in I missed it. It was nice to see though that Rob worked in a part for his Mother also.

I am not sure why the movie studios dropped this movie but they must be nuts. Its hilarious!! One long, non stop, butt joke movie. Maybe thats why they didnt back it. Cause of the topic. But it is a cult classic in the making. Just freakin brilliantly "stupid funny".

David Carridine is perfect as the Master. Great role in a comedy. Schnieder had a low budget but it doesnt show at all. He made without a doubt as good a movie as Duese Biggalow 1...not 2...that one was a stinker.

But this flick is great. I heard him do an interview on Howard Stern on Sirius Radio...man if you are missing him you are missing brilliant radio there too..Howard is in MVP form on Sirius..but Schnieder worked his tail off on this flick and it shows. Great job Rob!!

Im an Idiocracy, Holy Grail, Grandma's Boy type of comedy fan. This movie is as good on a completely unique topic.

Big Stan is a con-artist. He's wealthy, gets caught and must go to prison. But they give him time to get his affairs in order which eventually leads him to "The Master" who teaches him martial arts so he can avoid getting "man-handled" in prison. I enjoyed this film but I can see where it may be offensive to some. I know Schneider had to pretty much make the film himself. Jackson Rathbone has a small part so Twilight fans may be pleased. Rob's mother is in this one too. It is subtitled in English for the deaf.

A really funny movie. Personally, I think Jennifer Morrison, who played the part of Rob's very sexy wife, was a welcome distraction from some of the crude humor. It was quite the departure from her role on House.

I have seen and been amused by other Rob Schneider movies so I knew the type of slapstick humor to expect from "Big Stan".

I winced a bit at the more overt sex jokes and crude language compared to Rob's other films but I suppose that crudeness is not much different from many Judd Apatow or Seth Rogen movies.

I chose to allow myself to enjoy the movie and have some wow moments -

1) The gags were laugh-out-loud funny as expected.
2) A pleasant surprise was that the film also worked as a credible action film, especially Rob's scenes showing skills in arnis-kali, nunchaku, and sticky-hands (Chisao) sparring. Having Simon Rhee, Dan Inosanto and the guy who played the Vietnamese villain (obviously a genuine martial artist) added to the credibility.
3) David Carradine was brilliant as usual and I thought it was a real coup to have him in this movie.
4) The final Wow moment was finding out that Rob directed the movie as well and that this was his first directorial stint. The movie was quite polished and tight for a first-time director.

Of course, this is NOT art. But it's brilliant entertainment.

In a nutshell: Think of the recent Stallone movie EXPENDABLES. Now tell Rob Schneider to take a comparable cast to act out an immature plotline. Have him and his writing team add their own special brand of comedy. liked it. Enjoy BIG STAN. I enjoyed it.

This is not so much a review, as it as a long comment. Marvelously Horrible! With a little race hate for everyone. I wish I didn't like this movie, but I do! It's much funnier than I could ever have imagined and I don't really have that much of a sense of humor where race and prison are involved. But the nazis (who speak in black slang????) get it as bad as the black guys and there are lots of fine references to black male sexual prowess and insatiability--beginning with the opening bit, which is what kept me from changing the channel post haste. Rob Schneider gets funnier as the movie goes on; David Carradine's role is played with ice water for blood, the slapstick is hilarious and Schneider can make anyone want to take up martial arts; he and his stunt double are very convincing. The shower scene is even better than the first yard scene.What's better is that there are at least 3 stories going on concurrently. Maybe it's getting such a low rating here because it isn't as negative as it seems at first glance.
