Did they think we forgot about the first two -- is that why they left off 'part 3'?
Why does Martin Lawrence keep donning the fat suit to play Big Momma? How many more situations can he get himself into that he has to rely on the help of his alter-ego, Hattie Mae Pierce? Apparently enough to make a trilogy out of the Big Momma movies. At least Lawrence is getting a paycheck, what are we getting out of it? I would explain the circumstances on how and why Malcolm (Lawrence) and his stepson, Trent (Jackson) go undercover at an all-girls school, but -- really? This is a Big Momma movie, people -- plot is really just a moot point. The writers only have one job on a movie like this, get Malcolm and Trent into drag as soon as possible, because there's nothing funnier than a fat, sassy Southern black woman stereotype. Isn't that right, Tyler Perry? Maybe they need to do a Madea/Big Momma crossover and just get everyone offended at the same time.
I understand that they were at a performing arts school and everything, but did we really need to sit through 5... count them, 5.... musical numbers (6 if you include the music video during the end credits). I felt like I was tricked into watching some stage play version of Big Momma where the characters just break into song on a whim. Maybe that's where they're trying to take the Big Momma character....because she certainly would put the BROAD in Broadway. Yes, bad pun, I know... but forgive me, please, I just had to sit through a Big Momma movie. More reviews at www.soveryterry.com Final Grade: D+
