Deuce Bigalow star Rob Schneider writes and stars in this comedy about a nerdy con man whose swindling ways ultimately land him a stiff prison sentence. Terrified at the prospect of being raped while serving time, the diminutive convict-to-be enlists the aid of a respected kung-fu expert in teaching him how to properly defend himself. Once inside, however, he finds his kung-fu serving as a catalyst for peace between the many warring factions.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"I wasted two valuable hours of my life on Big Stan -- don't make the same mistake."
‑ Ruth Hessey, MovieTime, ABC Radio National
"If you're not a fan, then this won't do much to convert you, unless you, like Schneider, have a dubious obsession with anal rape jokes."
‑ Jarrod Walker, FILMINK (Australia)
"some good laughs to be had... Schneider's best film since The Hot Chick"
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole
"Prison rape comedy is offensive and a waste of time."
‑ Joly Herman, Common Sense Media
"This may be the first mainstream Hollywood comedy where the anus drives the movie -- and I don't mean that as a double entendre."
‑ Paul Byrnes, Sydney Morning Herald
"If you leave all your grown up sensibilities at the door and fill up on popcorn while watching Big Stan, preferably in a crowd of your like-minded mates, you'll probably have a roaring good time."
‑ Andrew L. Urban, Urban Cinefile
"A prison comedy that boldly confronts the "hilarity" of male rape, Big Stan isn't as offensive as it imagines itself to be, and nowhere near as silly as I'm sure Rob Schneider hoped for. It's a just a forgettable, unfunny waste of time."
‑ Brian Orndorf,
"2008 has, with one or two exceptions, been a diabolical year for American comedy, and Big Stan hits rock bottom."
‑ David Stratton, At the Movies (Australia)
"Whether you love him or hate him, your opinion of Rob Schneider will remain unchanged by the end."
‑ Jonathon Valenzuela, Time Out Sydney
