Once upon a time, there lived a tiny, insecure man who learned the only way he could make his enormous ego feel comfortable in his teeny, tiny body was to embarrass, humiliate, and torture others. He thought he was a master of disguise, fooling others into believing he was a big man. Yet he was only fooling himself, and through time his unconscionable behavior repulsed and repelled everyone. If his heart was three or three-hundred sizes too small, it didn't matter by then because no one was around to even care…

Did You Know?
Prison scenes were shot at a closed women's prison in Stockton.
Stan's lawyer informs him there was a "last minute change" made by the Bureau of Prisons. The Bureau of Prisons ("BOP") governs federal prisons only, but Stan was sentenced to a state prison, which is governed by the state's agency, known only as "Department of Corrections".
I will be unrape-able!
A pretty decent comedy
I find the general lack of interest towards this comedy rather
disturbing. This message coming all the way from Europe, Bulgaria. The
movie is playing in theaters as of this week, and to be honest it is
just as hilarious and similarly spirited to other Schneider flicks. I
went to see this expecting a few good laughs and that's what you get.
The funny moments generally arise from comical situations and actions
which lead to a rather expected outcome each time. It is not a
sophisticated film, it has no real depth, it is just a feel good,
unrealistic comedy, which makes you all warm inside. I apologize for
the chaotic and short review, it's just that I find it hard to organize
my thoughts in order give this film an adequate presentation. 7 out of
10, doesn't stray too far from all the other Schneider movies, if
you've loved his previous work, you'll also enjoy seeing this.
