Entertainment Weekly   Full Review
Good "There are stretches of big fun and little pleasures too...But there are too many distracting, ungainly stretches of too little fun, particularly involving Martha Stewart, the Discovery Channel, Fritos, and toe sucking.''

James Berardinelli, Internet Critic  Full Review
Good "Big Trouble is, for lack of a better term, a glorious mess. It's fun, frantic, and off-the-wall...  With a cast of characters so large that Robert Altman would feel at home, Big Trouble manages to do a lot of clever little things and generate quite a few big laughs without wearing out its welcome.''

Roger Ebert  Full Review
Above Average "It's the kind of movie you can't quite recommend because it is all windup and not much of a pitch, yet you can't bring yourself to dislike it.  The movie is a reminder of an age when such plots were obviously not to be taken seriously. It's nice to be reminded of that time.''

USA TODAY  Full Review
Good "The proceedings move so swiftly and smoothly that they are over before you know it, which is exactly how a comedy should work. (More movies should emulate this 82-minute model.) The script is consistently humorous, even if a few punch lines are predictable and the wit is neither highbrow nor split-a-gut funny.''

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

We collected 117 moviegoer opinions. It's not very good when you see so many of the opinions concentrated in the "Good/Avg." to "Very Good" range. You'll also notice there are very few "Fantastic" opinions and quite a few opinions of "Fair/Ok" and lower. All this tells me this is, at best, just an OK movie that you may enjoy somewhat. However, your chances of truly enjoying it are very slim.

I suggest that you read the detailed opinions and the detailed content before deciding to see this very silly movie.
