Big Momma's Like Father, Like Son: A Bad Idea that has Gotten Worse with Each Film
By: Da'Mon Guy
Big Momma’s: Like Father, Like Son is a life-diminishing, maddening attempt at comedic entertainment. The movie is a haphazard, putrid effort to unite two generations of movie goers. The film stars Martin Lawrence (Death at a Funeral), Brandon T. Jackson (Lottery Ticket), Jessica Lucas (Cloverfield), Michelle Ang (My Wedding and Other Secrets), Portia Double Day (Youth In Revolt), Tony Curran (Underworld: Evolution), Faison Love (Couples Retreat), and Ken Jeong (The Hangover pt. 2).
Big Momma’s: Like Father, Like Son is a disappointing, inexcusable film that tries to infuse a youthful perspective with some of the outdated comedic antics of Martin Lawrence. The movie is the abysmal third appearance by Lawrence as the now defunct character, Hattie May (Big Momma) Pearson. This newest addition is even less entertaining than the last film to showcase Lawrence as the character.
This disappointing calamity makes some ridiculous attempts to entertain the audience with some adolescent-like humor. Big Momma’s House 3 isn’t as funny as the second dismal film in this unbearable waste of resources. The whole concept of “Big Momma” is even less entertaining in this addition. The laughs are few and between within the framework of this dismal tragedy.
