Thank the Lord! Big Momma's House 3 is on the way!

03.02.2010

If you thought NORBIT was enough to put a nail in the coffin of the famous-comedian-dressing-up-as-fat-lady genre, I'm sorry to report that you were oh so wrong. Fox and Regency have given the greenlight to BIG MOMMA'S HOUSE 3, which will begin filming this April. Joining star Martin Lawrence for the third installment is Brandon T. Jackson who I most feel sorry for in this ordeal. He went from starring in a whip-smart comedy like TROPIC THUNDER that poked fun at movies exactly like BIG MOMMA'S HOUSE and now he's relegated to starring in one.

John Whitesell, who did such bang-up work on BIG MOMMA'S HOUSE 2, will return to direct the third film, which will follow Lawrence's FBI agent once again going undercover. This time he'll pair up with his 17-year-old nephew to go undercover at an all-girls performing arts school. OK now I really feel bad for Brandon Jackson. Dude is 27 years old and he's once again playing a 17-year-old (see PERCY JACKSON).

What I find most interesting about this news is that the producers don't want the film to be titled BIG MOMMA'S HOUSE 3. Um...why?? The people who will go see a BIG MOMMA'S HOUSE 3 probably aren't going to split hairs on the title of the movie. It's got a guy dressed as a fat old woman, you could just call it GUY IN FAT SUIT and the returns would probably be the same...

I liked Norbit! Eddie Murphy as an old Chinese man! Hilarious!

I thought the first two were funny. I'd probably check this out on dvd.

It pains me to admit this, but I caught like an hour of Big Momma's House 2 several months ago on TV, and I was actually laughing quite a bit. That doesn't mean I'll see this movie, but Martin Lawrence can be surprisingly funny.

I WISH, I DREAM, I PRAY

I wish Paul Giamatti's career had gone to shit and he ended up making straight-to-video Big Momma's House sequel's with him now as Big Momma.

Martin is just cashing in checks on what little fame he has left.

ughhh, people are stupid

Look, we all can agree this sounds so terrible, and is a bad idea, but you know what? PEOPLE will STILL see it! This is the problem with us today, we have ZERO standards. We like GARBAGE, and people don't demand quality (at least most people).

This is why reality tv is ruling the networks (reality game shows too), and shit like Jersey Shore is popular, mindless zero quality "entertainment." People make me sick these days sometimes.

Hey, hey, hey, Martin Lawrence needs to pay his bills. Besides it's not like he's being offered roles in the latest Scorsese films, so he needs to take what he can get.

Well

It'll be better than Cop Out. And every Twilight film. But probably not by much.

Martin Lawrence isn't funny. If racial jokes were forbidden, he'd have no material.

This is going to suck, but will it be worse than Norbit? I'm betting yes!

Also, I think Brandon T. Jackson isn't playing a 17 yr. old in "Percy Jackson", seeing as how he is simply in the school to protect Percy, plus he's a fantasy creature, thus age is a little funny there.

They wouldn't make them if people didn't go to see them. If I recall correctly, the first in the series was made around the time Martin went bat-shit crazy, was pointing guns and doing workouts in heat suits and passing out, so I think the first movie mainly made money because people were into his drama at the time.

I guess this happens when you waste your money. Honestly, Martin Lawrence, Please with sugar on top, retire from movies forever. Just stop. Either that or release nerve gas into the theaters of anyone who would pay to see this "film."

I never thought I'd say this but...I'd rather watch another crappy remake than this thing.
