Big Trouble is a 1986 American comedy film directed by John Cassavetes. The movie revolves around a struggling businessman named Matt Stone who is facing financial difficulties in his life. One day, he meets a mysterious woman named Pug who promises him a big score by asking him to accompany her to a meeting with a group of criminals.

Soon, Matt finds himself embroiled in a plot involving a stolen suitcase, a group of bumbling criminals, and a strange assortment of characters who are all trying to get their hands on the mysterious object. These include a pair of inept hitmen, a wealthy businessman, a paranoid ex-cop, and a group of heavily armed neo-Nazis.

As the chaos unfolds, Matt must rely on his wits and his ability to bluff his way out of dangerous situations in order to stay alive and come out on top. Along the way, he forms an unlikely alliance with a gruff private eye named Leon, played by the always-entertaining Peter Falk.

The movie is light-hearted and entertaining throughout, with plenty of laugh-out-loud moments and a cast of talented comic actors who are clearly having fun with the material. Alan Arkin, in particular, is a standout as the dim-witted hitman who can't seem to get anything right.

Beverly D'Angelo also shines in a small but memorable role as a ditzy blonde who gets caught up in the mayhem. Despite the film's comedic tone, there are plenty of suspenseful moments that keep the audience on edge, particularly during the film's action-packed climax.

Overall, Big Trouble is a charming and hilarious film that is well worth a watch for fans of comedy and action alike. Its zany plot and talented cast make for an entertaining and memorable viewing experience that is sure to leave audiences in stitches.
