Synopsis

Malcolm Turner has been going undercover as "Big Momma". His teenage stepson Trent Pierce has just graduated from high school and is accepted into Duke University. However, he prefers to pass on college and pursue a music career as a rapper named "Prodi-G". With his mother Sherry away on vacation, Trent tries to get Malcolm to sign a contract for him but Malcolm refuses as he believes that Trent should get his education. Persistent to get the signature, Trent stalks Malcolm while he is working on a case and witnesses a murder. To keep Trent safe, Malcolm goes undercover as Big Momma for the third time. Trent joins him, going undercover as Big Momma's great niece "Charmaine Daisy Pierce" at a performing arts' school for girls. Trent tries to develop a romance with one of the girls as himself while "Big Momma" is being pursued by the school's goofball Marine Kurtis Kool who has a fascination with big women.

Blu-ray Sales: Battle Earns Victory on High Definition

Battle: Los Angeles was just able to squeak ahead of True Grit on this week's Blu-ray sales chart with 375,000 units sold for opening week sales of $8.71 million. Its opening week Blu-ray sales ratio was 47% in terms of units and 54% in terms of dollars. It won't be long before visual effects laden blockbusters commonly sell more Blu-rays than DVDs. More...

DVD Sales: True Grit in Battle for Top Spot

While three new releases reached the top five, none were able to sell as many DVDs as True Grit. That film sold 446,000 units over the week for a total of 1.36 million after two, lifting its total revenue to $20.95 million. More...

DVD and Blu-ray Releases for June 21st, 2011

It's another busy week for DVD / Blu-ray with four first-run releases coming out this week. Five if you include Cedar Rapids, which was had surprisingly brisk ticket sales in limited release. Cedar Rapids is also the only one of the big releases that I would consider for Pick of the Week honors. Despite the number of wide releases on this week's list, I'm going with an unorthodox choice for Pick of the Week, "Weird Al" Yankovic - Alpocalypse, but Louie: Season One on Blu-ray earns an honorable mention.

Featured Blu-ray / DVD Review: Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son

I watched Big Momma's House, because Paul Giamatti was in it and I'm a big fan of his. It's not one of his best movies, to put it mildly. I also watched Big Momma's House 2, mainly because Kat Dennings was it it and I'm a big fan of hers. It's arguably her worst movie. Now that I've seen Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son, was the franchise able to recover from its previous low, or should it have quit after part two? More...

DVD and Blu-ray Releases for June 14th, 2011

It's actually a rather busy week for DVD / Blu-ray releases, at least for the summertime, with four first run releases coming out. Granted, those four films averaged just 21% positive reviews, so it is certainly a matter of quantity over quality. Unfortunately, the quantity of first run releases appears to have scared away quality alternatives and there are not a lot of top notch releases. There are a few that are with picking up, some of which are for limited audiences, but as far as Pick of the Week contenders go, there are none. However, True Blood: Season Three arrived late, and I'm giving the Pick of the Week honor to the Blu-ray. More...

Hall Passes, But Barely

February ended in the same position it has been for nearly the entire year, on the losing end of the comparison to 2010. The post-holiday drop-off was steep at 25% leaving the weekend box office at just $109 million. This was 9% lower than the same weekend last year. Normally, a 9% drop-off year-over-year would be devastating, but that's actually better than 2011 has averaged so far. Year-to-date it is now 21% lower than 2010's pace at $1.53 billion to $1.93 billion. More...

Unknown Finds Self On Top of Chart

It was a good news / bad news situation this weekend as a number of films missed expectations. However, the overall box office was still enough for 2011 to secure its first win, topping last year's box office $145 million to $134 million. Granted, this is not exactly a fair comparison, as it was President's Day long weekend this year and it wasn't last year, but when you've had a 14-week losing streak, you will take any win that you can. Year-to-date, 2011 is still behind 2010's pace by nearly $400 million at $1.39 billion to $1.78 billion and there's little you can do to spin that into a positive. More...

Number Four Is Headed For Number One, But Will It Be Enough?

We need a win. It has been more than three months since we've seen a victory in the year-over-year comparison, and with last year's Alice in Wonderland looming ahead on the comparisons, if we don't get a win soon, we might not get one for another couple of months. There is some good news this weekend. It's President's Day long weekend, which actually happened one weekend earlier last year. This means we have a holiday weekend this year going up against the post-holiday weekend from last year. Granted, Shutter Island opened with more than $40 million and I don't think any film will repeat that feat this year. However, last year's second place film, Valentine's Day made under $17 million, and each of the top five films this year could make that much. In order words, depth could be the key to the first victory of the year. More...

2011 Preview: February

January got off to about as bad a start as I feared, and already 2011 is behind 2010 by about $275 million. Even worse, last February was better than expected. Not only did Avatar add another $200 million to its coffers during the month, the new releases collectively topped expectations every week (even if some individual releases failed to do so). What does this mean going forward? It means 2011 will likely continue to lose ground on 2010. By the time March rolls around, the only thing box office watchers will be talking about is the slump.
