One porcupine puffer I had would eat anything you put in the tank. Cleaner shrimp would not have lasted 5 minutes. Some puffers are more docile but some are not

*180 gal Display, 100 gal basement sump, 33 gal refugium, 3x250 MH, 2x160 VHO actinics, zoos, some softies, LPS & lots of acros and other SPS.
*100 gal prop tank plumbed into main system w/ 2x96 PC lights and 1x150 MH,

I just saw that movie last month. I would say no to putting all of those fish in a tank would be a bad idea. The puffer can get up to thirty inches, and are aggressive especially to inverts. Even if you tried you'd need a huge tank ie several hundred gallons.

29g FOWLR- 2 Percula Clowns
2 Emerald Mithrax Crab, 5 Nassarius Snails, 3 Astrea Snails, 1 mexican turbo snails, 1 Chocolate Chip Star, 1 Peppermint Shrimp, and 27lbs of LR 2lbs tonga branch and 25lbs fiji rock

Maiden's Hair, Calerpa, and Red Kelp macro algae.

You need a specialty tank for the puffer, he's a messy eater and will eat anything he can fit in his mouth if he's hungry enough.
