Try WhatSize, OmniDiskSweeper, or Disk Inventory X...all do a good job of showing that info.

or just a smart folder with file size above a certain value. depends how you define large. average joe will find 400MB large, where as movie-edittor pro will find 4Gb average.

You don't need a special utility or app, just go into the finder, hit Command + F, and configure the various options to search your entire computer for any file with whatever size.
