Tim Allen headlines an eclectic ensemble cast in the Barry Sonnenfeld-directed crime and comedy caper, Big Trouble. The lives of guys and gals, both good and bad, are transformed as the story revolves around a bomb-filled suitcase.

Allen and Sonnenfeld have each had their share of comedic hits and misses at the box office. Initially scheduled for a summer 2001 release date, Touchstone studios pushed back the film's debut to September 21st, perhaps to avoid any Big Trouble of their own in challenging the summer blockbusters, and to help insure that the bomb remains within the storyline suitcase, instead of arriving as a dud at the box office in the midst of a crowded opening weekend.

Notable supporting cast includes, in alphabetical order: Omar Epps, Dennis Farina, Janeane Garofalo, Jason Lee, Rene Russo, Tom Sizemore, and Stanley Tucci. (Cal Hubbard/BOP)

The plot of Big Trouble hits a little too close to home in light of the tragic events that occurred earlier this week in New York City and Washington, D.C., and Disney has chosen to delay the release of the film indefinitely. (Kim Hollis/BOP)

December 3, 2001
Disney has settled on an April release date for the film. (Kim Hollis/BOP)
