Critics Really, REALLY Did Not Like Big Momma’s; Like Father, Like Son

    It must be pretty easy to be a movie critic these days. Every other movie is a stinker. If a good movie does come out, every other critic probably loves it, so loving it as well doesn’t separate you from the crowd. Plus, even average movies look good compared to the other turds. Eh, what do I care.

    One thing that several critics agreed on; Big Momma’s; Like Father, Like Son is a hot turd wrapped in a fat suit.

    We knew this day was coming: The day when Martin Lawrence’s latest fat-suited outing, Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son, would cause global hysteria with its daring exploration of transgender issues, father-son dynamics, and the plus-size mystique. Our critical colleagues (especially those across the pond in the U.K., where Big Mommas opened earlier this week) were not so forgiving.

    Let me get back to the critic gig for a second; it must make it even harder when a critic knows before he/she buys a ticket that a stinker is on the way. “Ugh, I’ve got a dentist appointment at 1pm then a 4pm showing of Jonah Hex. I’m not sure what will be more painful. Might as well have a vasectomy before breakfast and pencil this in as the worst day of my life. ”

    Behold, the nine most scornful take-downs of what just might be the worst-reviewed movie of the year: “While sitting through this embarrassing piece of sh*t, I almost contemplated drowning myself in the toilets of the Savoy by repeatedly flushing my head under the bowl until the pain went away.” — Mike Sheridan,

    Isn’t that how they came up with the idea for another Big Momma movie?
