The comedy is about a day in the life of an American family who come together to put a beloved husband and father to rest. As mourners gather at the family home, shocking revelations, festering resentments, ugly threats, blackmail and a misdirected corpse unleash lethal mayhem.
Special note to Will Smith and company: ENOUGH ALREADY.
Yes, it’s apparently true that for some reason (probably a desperate push for more money) there will indeed be a Bad Boys 3. What is this, Old Home Week for Martin Lawrence? First it’s Big Momma’s House 3, now we wind up with Bad Boys 3? And yes…just in case you might have held out hope, Michael Bay is hoped by the studio to be back directing.
This means you at least know what to expect going in–plenty of explosions and special effects with short shrift given to anything that might accidentally resemble a coherent plotline. But at least you know what to expect, so I figure that if this sucker manages to get off the ground it’ll either be a summer movie or dumped neck-deep in January. There’s no word on script or release date or anything like that; everything’s still real early stage. It might take us until 2011 to get this one in theatres, so brace yourself just in case.
As in two more than one. As in one more than two. As in why are they even bothering?
Look…I know Martin Lawrence’s career is pretty much as dead as a goldfish when you get it home but do we seriously need yet another guy in a fat suit and horrible accent? Isn’t the whole cross-dressing black guy thing pretty much owned by the nonstop array of Madea movies that Tyler Perry continually grunts out like so many golden eggs of dubious origin?
But to show Fox’s committment to blasting Lions Gate out of the water in the black guys dressed like elderly fat black women subgenre, they’ve brought in Randi Mayem Singer to handle the script. The hilarity in that decision comes in the fact that Singer was the previous writer of…brace yourself…
You can’t see me right now, and that’s probably a good thing, because my gravitas would be SO smoked by the fact that I spent the last three minutes rolling with laughter. I now understand ROFL. But this really is fun news, even if the movie won’t be quite so much fun.
I guess this movie found its audience by being a laugh-out-loud comedy hit. The story pivots on Martin Lawrence who returns to his small-town family to discover that going home is no vacation!Â
The story turns out to be a hilarious weekend with an all-star cast of outrageous and lovable characters. They put him through one hilarious predicament after another before he finally learns a lesson about the true meaning of family!
