About Big Trouble

Get set for Big Trouble and double indemnity when Peter Falk (TV's "Columbo") and Alan Arkin (The In-Laws) reunite as a wacky pair of insurance swindlers. Beverly D'Angelo (American History X, Vegas Vacation) aids and abets the inspired lunacy in director John Cassavetes' riotous farce. The trouble and the laughs start when insurance man Leonard Hoffman (Arkin) decides to send his three sons to Yale. To raise cash, Leonard gets drawn into a bizarre scheme by Steve Rickey (Falk) and his screwball wife Blanche (D'Angelo). But their plot to collect an "accidental" death policy gets sidetracked by a series of hilariously unforeseen twists. Can these unlikely allies pull off the sting before they get stung? Falk and Arkin pile up big laughs as they get deeper and deeper into Big Trouble!
