More than five years after "Big Momma's House""Big Momma's House" -- which was basically "Kindergarten Cop" in drag -- Martin LawrenceMartin Lawrence goes the Uncle Miltie route again in this wholly uninspired sequel, which plays more like "Mrs. Doubtfire 2." Donning the fat suit and wig, Lawrence's FBI agent becomes the nanny to a trio of kids, while engaging in the most rudimentary of revenge plots. Probably review-proof for openers, pic is so episodic and flat it should be a letdown even to those amused by the original.
Consider it a trivia footnote that the first "House" party featured Terrence Howard as the bad guy and Paul GiamattiPaul Giamatti as Lawrence's partner. Yet if that stakeout caper actually had some semblance of a dramatic foundation, the setup here is ludicrous from the get-go, as if the box office tally from its forerunner was reason enough to make the sequel.
