Movie night is BIG in our house and of the many flicks we’ve watched Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son was recently added to the list. I was laughing two minutes in and it kept my attention straight through. Martin Lawrence is the master of disguises, three movies in and Big Mommas sassy charm is still a pleasure to watch. Brandon T. Jackson, who plays the stepson, adds his own humorous twist to the mix.
I won’t give it all away, but here is a quick snapshot of the story. FBI agent Malcolm Turner and his stepson Trent go undercover at an all-girls performing arts school after Trent witnesses a murder. True the saying “Like Father, like son” – Malcolm goes undercover as Big Momma and Trent is disguised as her grand-niece Charmaine.
The director did a great job of putting together a comedic cast of familiar faces like Ken Jeong aka Chang from the office and Faizon Love, who has been in more comedic flicks than I can count. Overall there was alittle bit of everything for everybody; some action, some romance, a few twists and alot of laughs.
If you are looking for something fun to watch with the family, you won’t be disappointed. Plus I personally like the positive father – son feel to it. It’s a nice addition to any family movies collection and/or as a gift for the tweens in your circle. My boys and I enjoyed this flick and we’ll definitely watch it again.
