Big Momma's House 2 goes up in flames!
Fans of Big Momma's House will leave the theater feeling empty and half-starved for comedic relief after viewing the second installment in the franchise, Big Momma's House 2. Even though the capable Martin Lawrence returns as the Malcolm Turner, a.k.a. Hattie Mae "Big Momma" Pierce characters, he can't stop this house from going up in flames.

Malcolm Turner is still working for the FBI, although in the public relations office. He wants to trade in his desk duties to get a sweet taste of field ops, yet again, soon seeing his opportunity when it's learned that a computer hacker has developed a devastating worm to infiltrate the FBI and other government databases. They need someone to gain access to the home of the corporate suspect Tom Fuller (Mark Moses, Desperate Housewives) via a nanny with "excellent" credentials (you know where this is going). Malcolm puts in his bid to the boss man, but his offer is flatly denied. Malcolm decides to go against his wishes and resurrects his old cover as "Big Momma," winning the heart of Mrs. Leah Fuller played by Emily Procter (Jerry Maguire). Of course he also has to take cover from bursting-at-the- seams pregnant Sherri (Nia Long, Soul Food) who returns as his wife in this sequel; she is dead-set against him returning to the field--and so am I.

Here's why. Big Momma's House 2 doesn't have the same vigor as its predecessor. Martin Lawrence is a box-office draw, but he can't carry the film alone. The clichéd one-liners spewing from his mouth, which are very cute in the first film, grow stale here after 30 minutes, and the lack of a comedic supporting cast was noticeably obvious. In Big Momma's House, Malcolm's sidekick, John (Paul Giamatti, The Negotiator), provided banter between them that anchored the laughs, took them home. Anthony Anderson's (Hustle & Flow) character, Nolan, unleashed the wicked charm of Ms. Hattie Mae's masculine side. Cedric the Entertainer (Barbershop) didn't make any cameos either. Need I say more?

I didn't expect the film to have a lush budget for the screenplay (written by Don Rhymer, The Santa Clause 2, and Darryl Quarles, Big Momma's House), but I did expect Mr. Lawrence to provide a classy product that his fans could live with. Big Momma's House 2 will be forgotten, starkly resembling the squalor out back next to Fido's House. And if you're not careful, you might step in it, 2.
