Big Momma’s House 2

MARTIN'S MOMMA: Mrs. Doubtfire with more booty and a splash of hip-hop.Martin Lawrence again dons foam and latex to incarnate a rotund, none-too feminine granny in John Whitesell’s sequel to the broad 2000 comedy. He’s Mrs. Doubtfire with more booty and a splash of hip-hop as the new Momma takes a more nurturing, family-oriented bent. No surprise, really: his alter ego, screwball FBI agent Malcolm Turner, is married (to Nia Long, from the first Momma) and has a child on the way, and his undercover persona, Big Momma, plays nanny to three neglected rich kids and a depressed Chihuahua. Tequila and a boombox fix most of those problems, but there’s still the Internet worm that threatens to gobble up the CIA’s databanks. World security hangs in the balance, Big Momma jogs down the beach in golden dreadlocks à la Bo Derek in 10, and then there’s the visit to the chi-chi spa where Victoria’s Secret models romp around naked. It’s thin, but enough to make you forget the cold for 90 minutes.
