Like the Vin Diesel-starrer ‘The Pacifier’, this sequel sees a tough guy forced to look after a bunch of unruly kids in the interests of national security. And probably the best thing that can be said about ‘Big Momma’s House 2’ is that it isn’t as bad as ‘The Pacifier’. Martin Lawrence has, at least, some experience in comedies (whatever you think of them) and draws one or two laughs out of the film’s preposterous set-up. This time, his ex-FBI agent character, Malcolm, must go back in the field to tail a suspect. Enter nanny Big Momma, Malcolm’s fat-suited female alter-ego who got him the case and the girl in ‘Big Momma’s House’. Cue lots of waddling, pratfalls and credibility questions. Big Momma’s deliberate faux pas occasionally amuse, but this pays lip service to plot and morality to the point where the film itself seems quite pointless. If Lawrence makes you laugh, you’d be better off watching him do stand-up.
