Big Stan

Big Stan is a film about a con man who prepares his life in prison by studying martial arts in order to avoid being raped.

The challenge of films with less costly special effects and elaborate scenes is creating a good script. Admittedly, it is sorely lacking in this film. Though Rob Schneider is a natural at times, in this film he has to exert more effort to save the script, with unnoticeable result. The plot is so thin that the writers have to fabricate another story to make it compelling.

The film is based on the assumption that the prisoners are rapists, molesters, and thieves with a natural inkling to violence; this is what violates the dignity of persons behind bars. Though there an equal power capable of reforming people and this is probably saved the film, still the issue of prisoners should be handled with sensitivity and not just for the sake of comedy. The viewer may just lose his moral sense along the way.

Rating: 2.5/5
