Actor Ben Foster has learned to be more selective about how he describes his films - after starring in the flick Big Trouble.

The GET OVER IT star appeared in the flick last year (02) alongside TIM ALLEN and Rene Russo.

And while many critics referred to director BARRY SONNENFLED's Big Trouble as a black comedy, Foster insists it wasn't.

He says, "It was more of a crappy farce than a black comedy.

"I took the job so I could work with such a great director. But in the end, it ended up living up it its name.

"I've learned that calling a film a black comedy is like the kiss of death."
