Movie Summary

John Whitesell
Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son (also known as Big Momma's House 3) is a 2011 crime comedy film directed by John Whitesell and written by Matthew Fogel and Don Rhymer. The film is the second sequel to Big Momma's House (2000) and stars Martin Lawrence reprising his role as FBI agent Malcolm Turner. Malcolm Turner (Martin Lawrence) has been going undercover as "Big Momma" for the last 10 years. His teenage stepson Trent Pierce (Brandon T. Jackson) has just graduated from high school and is accepted into Duke University. He prefers to pass on college and pursue a music career as a rapper named "Prodi-G". With his mother Sherry away on vacation with Malcolm and Sherry's baby (born in the second movie), Trent tries to get Malcolm to sign a contract for him but Malcolm refuses as he believes that Trent should get an education. Persistent to get the signature, Trent follows Malcolm while he is working on a case and witnesses a murder by Russian gangster, Chirkoff. To keep Trent safe and from getting killed by Chirkoff, Malcolm goes undercover as Big Momma for the third time. Trent joins him, going undercover as Big Momma's great niece "Charmaine Daisy Pierce" at a performing arts school for girls.moreless

    A film so drained of entertainment or simple humanity it is difficult to relate to as anything other than industrial artifact.
