Default Muay Thai Giant [Somtum] (2008)

The 2008 Thai action flick Somtum has been found distribution by Magnolia and has been retitled to Muay Thai Giant. Starring Nathan Jones of Jet Li's Fearless and Tom Yum Goong (aka The Protector); Muay Thai Giant will be released on April 26, 2011.

Seven foot gentle giant Barney Emerald is drugged and robbed while on holiday in Pattaya. Two Thai sisters, one who speaks English, the other,a Muay Thai kick-boxing champion, befriend him so he can recover his passport. When Barney eats the spicy "somtum", it has a physical reaction, sending him into a raging and violent martial-arts frenzy. The girls use the somtum to control Barney's powerful reactions to earn back his money and take down the local crime lords.

Interesting. This makes me wonder when we will see Stephen Chow's next film.

From the review :

The best fight is when Dokya teams up with the owner of a papaya stand to take down some out-of-their-league thugs. (One of whom—for reasons unexplained—is drinking soda through a straw out of a plastic bag. Is this a thing in Thailand?)

Yes - people commonly drink soda from plastic bags, it's sold like that on the streets in Thailand. No need to look for special 'unexplained' reasons.

I was going to comment on this as well. I've seen this practice as a visitor to Malaysia 30 years ago.
