Entertainment: +2

Content: -2

Cast: Martin Lawrence, Nia Long, Zachary Levy, Emily Procter. 20th Century Fox. Action/crime/comedy. Written by Don Rhymer. Directed by John P. Whitesell.

FILM SYNOPSIS: This sequel to the 2000 comedy has Martin Lawrence as the FBI special unit member, once again donning his obese lady garb in order to go undercover. Here, hes become the nanny to the children of a computer wizard who maybe threatening homeland security. While staying in the suspects house, our hero/heroine comes to care for the kids.

PREVIEW REVIEW: Thin on plot, most of the humor generates from a skinny man made up like a big woman. An incredibly big woman. Mr. Lawrence did a great job the first time around in his Mrs. Doubtfire-like disguise, but hes already mined most of the laughs from this one-note concept. This is a zaftig retread. Added to the redundant concept, the story is peppered with either crude or lewd comic situations.
