Martin Lawrence needs to be killed. The man has not made a good film since 2003’s Bad Boys 2 and the trash this man has been in is staggering ( Wild Hogs, Death at a Funeral). The reason why I want Martin dead is so the ‘Big Mommas’ franchise is dead in a gutter. I never want to have to see Martin Lawrence to dawn the fat suit ever again if ‘ Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son’ is anything to go on. If this is the new age of nutshots, fat people nude modelling and mistaken identity than God help us all.
FBI Agent Malcolm Turner has got himself in a pickle again! After an undercover operation goes bad Malcolm’s son Trent (Played by the brutally unfunny Brandon T. Jackson) witnesses the murder of Malcolm’s wired man by the Eastern European gangster Chirkoff (played by Tony Curran). So to protect his son from the mob Malcolm and Trent strap up in fat suits and go into hiding at an All-Girl School for the Arts.
But no one comes to a Big Momma movie for the plot, you come here for the humor but if you are a person who is a regular here at Screened than you’ll have a low tolerance for this kind of movie. It is one horrible slap stick to ‘Girls getting naked but she’s really a guy’ scene to another scene of slapstick to ‘Quickly get dressed, someone is coming’ scene. It is unoriginal, boring and unbelievably dull. This is a movie in which you will sit there completely slient.
If you didn’t come to Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son for the acting. The one thing that all the acting in this film has in common is that it has a complete lack of effort. No one give this movie any of their attention, Martin Lawrence tries the hardest but you can see that pain in his face when he delivers such lines as ‘So this is why it’s called ‘The Nutcracker’’ after a nutshot, which I’m pretty sure it’s law that when a ballot and a nutshot is in the same scene someone MUST mention ‘The Nutcracker’. Jessica Lucas who plays the movie’s love interest is more comparable to a dead fish than a actual interesting person. No one in the film is believable in the slightest.
The effects in this movie needs a special mention. If you told me they used the same effects from 2000’s Big Momma's House I would believed you. Not since ‘ White Chicks’ has a human being look so fake, uncanny valley levels of effect here people! This scene is which Big Momma is nude modelling for an art class (Yeah, that happened in the movie) is an hate crime to the eyes. Her skin looks like Rhyno skin spray painted brown. It looks horrible.
This is where we are heading. ‘Comedies’ like this, Grown Ups and Just Go With It will become the normal. We are heading for tough times. Comedy after comedy of horrible outdated jokes and extremely bad slapstick will flood the market, make money, spawn sequels and make more money. If you do not want this to happen, see good movies, ignore bad films and lastly, don’t see Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son.
Fuck this movie.
