MOMMA’S GOT BACK-UP.
When Malcolm Turner (Martin Lawrence) and his 17-year-old son (Brandon T. Jackson) witness a Russian Mob killing, they have no choice but to hide at a girls school as Big Momma and her grandniece. The third chapter in this franchise is an improvement on the second, even though the concept now has lost what little touch it had with reality. The two leads struggle frantically with a story that at best provokes a smile or two. A few musical numbers might appeal to a high school audience.
2011-U.S. 107 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed by John Whitesell. Cast: Martin Lawrence (Malcolm Turner), Brandon T. Jackson (Trent Pierce), Jessica Lucas (Haley Robinson), Michelle Ang, Portia Doubleday, Ana Ortiz.
