Looks like it might be a vertex weighting issue. Open up Max and look carefully at the parts of the model that seem seriously messed up. Chances are parts of your mesh may be weighted to the wrong bones. Example: some verticies on your right shoulder are weighted to your left shin...or something.

Then again, I could be totally wrong.

It might also be that you need to reset the xform in the tools section,... I know I've seen that have some effect.

Looking at it I would have to agree with clu, it looks like a weighting problem...

Its probably easier to weight it from scratch, shouldn't take too long an hour max (well for my half arsed approach :D)

HapSlash noted that it could be an Xform issue which is definitely possible as well. The best way to find out is to just import your XSI back into Max to see if anything is out of place. If it is not, vertex weighting is probably the culprit.

If it's Xform, here's a thread that explains a decent way to fix it:
