My friend Luke (of EditingLuke) will surely be disappointed with me this time. He was the last person that I heard that really enjoyed the first two movies in this series (Big Momma's House 1 & 2), and I've no doubt that in preparation for this year's Oscars, he will be in line at the theatre opening day to catch this third (and hopefully final) installment.

But why do I refuse to see what is surely to be a masterpiece of fat-suit phenomena? Frankly, if you didn't get your fill in Big Momma's House, you should have definitely had enough by the time the credits rolled on the second film. The trailer offers up it's usual puns and lines which you just know is the best (and possibly only) funny material in this outdated flick. Those moments alone are enough to make your eyes roll to the point of nausea, not to mention what one can expect from seeing the film in it's entirety.

While Big Mommas: Like Father Like Son will undoubtedly have it's moments, it's not worth a few of mine. Luke, the movie opens February 18th. If you like it (and I mean really like it), I'll make you a deal and give you the $5 to scoop it out of the Wal-Mart bin next month just in time for your birthday.

*Note: Luke normally has an impeccable taste when it comes to good movies, but he really did enjoy the first two Big Momma movies. For shame...

haha, is this because I mentioned Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen? But I have no shame about this, the Big Momma movies are insanely funny in the right company. I mean seriously, consider the premise and think to yourself how such absurdity is not worth a laugh. The fact that everyone else in the movie thinks he's actually a real person when he's dressed like that is brilliant! Pardon me, but LOL :)

Oddly enough, I actually wrote this post before you posted yours, haha. I'm glad to see I wasn't wrong when mentioning you loved these enough to LOL. I urge you to check out the trailer though, and see if even YOU can put up with the tired humour it thrusts upon us.

Ok, I watched the trailer and it's obvious that the jokes are running thin. But I'm surprised you're not tempted by the cheap laughs . . . what attracted you to Norbit??

Hey, just wanted to say that I really enjoy these monthly picks of yours, and was wondering if you'd mind if I started doing something similar on my blog each month?

Hey Spindrift68, sorry for the late reply on this. Not at all! I've read your blog enough to know that you have the same hatred I do for these types of movies. The more we spread the word, the better! Go right ahead good sir! :-)
