Q: What does "I'll have a big look" mean?
A: I have never heard someone ever say, "I'll have a big look". Neither have I really heard anyone say exactly I'll "have a small look".

But, I have heard people say "I'll take a small peek", "A little look.", I'll take a quick peek.", "I took a long look.","I'll take a look around."
