Everybody calls me Big Momma!
Well, firstly don't go expecting a big momma like the previous 2. Big Mommas: Like farther, like son is slightly more immature and corny in comparison to the first two. It felt like it was more for 11 year old girls rather then a movie that you and your buddy can enjoy. However sometimes these "corny" movies can pull it off and i think this one did just that!
Ignore the low rating, I don't think it was really that bad. It may not be Martin Laurence at his best, but take into account that he was doing a more "kiddy" movie this time. It did manage to keep me entertained, even though the plot was flat and predictable, I did laugh along with the crowd at Big Mommas wittiness. Also action wise, i would say it was kept at a mediocre level but you can't expect much from a PG movie!
You know when people say "watch it with an open mind and you will enjoy it" Sorry but this is most definitely one of those movies.
What disappointed me the most was i expected a storyline just like the first Big Momma, that's why i was so let down. One other thing is, at times i thought i was watching "High School Musical" (you will understand what i mean if you've seen it!)
It could most definitely fall under the category, "It's so bad, that it's good" But i think the whole purpose of this film was aimed at a younger audience, you can tell that automatically by looking at the cast. It's not the easiest to review because when the film ended i was neither disappointed or satisfied, it was more like a good way to kill a hour or two.
Chances are your kids will love it and you won't be to tortured because it will bring out a couple of giggles and I must admit it, the songs were very catchy and quite nicely done. My final verdict will be "watch it with an open mind and you will enjoy it!"
