Rob Schneider goes to prison in Big Stan 
Prison is probably one of the scariest places especially when you hear about the brutality and violence that takes place behind those concrete walls which is why Rob Schneider’s character in the 2007 comedy Big Stan had to shape up and toughen up.
Stan Mitten (Rob Schneider) is a conman who the law has finally caught up with. His crooked lawyer, Lew Popper (M. Emmet Walsh) brokers (more like bribes) a deal with the presiding Judge Perry (Richard Riehle) who gives Stan six months to ‘get his affairs in order’ before serving his mandatory three year minimum sentence.
Hearing about prison violence, more specifically rape, he starts trying to make himself un-rape-able by learning martial arts and some other tricks which cannot be mentioned in this review.
The man he engages is simply called The Master (The Late David Carradine), the mysterious porn watching, chain-smoking martial art master who teaches him how to fight.
Meanwhile, anticipating loneliness, his wife Mindy, played by the gorgeous Jennifer Morrison, suggests having a baby. However, being selfish, Stan continually brushes the notion aside. This causes Mindy to runaway which gives Stan all the space he needs for his training.
This film speaks out against prison violence especially rape. Stan establishes himself as a bad ass by beating the largest sexual predator in the prison, Big Raymond (Bob Sapp), the Nazis led by Patterson (Salvator Xuereb) and the Diamond Kings led by Cleon (Buddy Lewis).
He then makes a rule in the prison condemning rape and encouraging social tolerance and interaction among the gangs.
There are cameos of some well-known martial artists like Tae Kwon Do (TKD) expert Simon Rhee and Jeet Kune Do Guru, Dan Inosanto, who plays the prison chef in the first prison fight scene.
The fight scenes incorporate techniques from Muay Thai, Jeet Kune Do, Wing Chun, Silat and Kali (Filipino stick-fighting). Although, Rob does not execute some techniques perfectly in the unarmed fight scenes, the stick fighting is great.
I must warn you that watching this film will cause uncontrollable laughter. However, do not let that stir you away from the message – say no violence!
