Get Mama in Shape!
28 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When Mama Harper enters an arm wrestling contest as the Bigger Jigger, she wins against a biker-type tattooed man. She wins the contest after tricking him and gaining his sympathy. The next contest is when she has to go arm wrestle somebody of her age and weight for fairness. The family and Iola does their best to get her in shape for the event which is far the funniest part of the episode. When the biker man brings his equally tough Mama played by Kathleen Freeman who does a fantastic job in the role, Mama goes arm to arm until she learns that her son and daughter-in-law have bet their life savings over the contest which means they will have to stay forever with Mama Harper.
