It’s not that drastic of a connection. Both shows feature silly costumes.

It’s too early to determine if he’ll dress in drag.
Every day, we here at Screen Junkies receive at least a dozen Martin Lawrence-related emails. As such, our crack-research team set to work to answer some of the most common questions we receive in regard to Mr. Lawrence.
Director: John Whitesell Cast: Martin Lawrence, Brandon T. Jackson, Faizon Love Synopsis: In this third entry into the “Big Momma’s House” series, FBI agent Martin Lawrence’s cross-dressing alter-ego, Big Momma,…
Obligatory fat-suit dance scene aka "The Stiller"
The FBI's top agent, who is allowed to dress up as an overweight septuagenarian from time to time, is back and dressed up like an overweight septuagenarian (just go with it). In Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son, Martin Lawrence helps his stepson/murder-witness hide out by dressing him like Kenan Thompson's sister and enrolling him at an all girl's school. Despite the lack of the dude in drag forced to group shower scene, it sounds like a sound plan to me. I also ate the cat's ear medicine today.
Watch Big Momma shake it after the jump…
In news that will make out-of-work dolly grips ecstatic, Martin Lawrence is certain that Bad Boys 3 will definitely happen needlessly. A script has been in the works for awhile and Michael Bay and Will Smith have stated that they'd come back if their price (Smith wants a role for Jaden, Bay wants a lifetime supply of snow leopard meat) is met. Here's what Lawrence told MTV:Any time you can get Big Willie to come out and talk about doing a third installment of a hot movie like ‘Bad Boys,’ you have to take notice. I met with Michael Bay, and he said he’s onboard too — so it’s real…We’re just waiting on Jerry Bruckheimer to let us know when it’s really real.Sounds like sh*t could get real to me. As long as the story is there, of course.
Death at a Funeral R, 93m., 2010Cast: Chris Rock, Martin Lawrence, Zoe Saldana, James Marsden, Columbus Short, Regina King, Keith David, Peter Dinkaledge with Loretta Devine, Luke Wilson, Tracy Morgan…
Yes, that's right. Martin Lawrence will don a suit of fat for a third time. The actor is set to star in Big Momma's House 3 and Tropic Thunder's Alpha Chino has somehow been convinced to co-star. Brandon T Jackson will play Trent, the nephew to Lawrence's character who witnesses a murder. In order to protect Trent and track down the killer, the two must logically dress up like sassy, overweight black women and hide out at an all-girls performing art school. This sounds a lot like Precious. Only with fewer laugh out loud moments.These films really get a lot of mileage out of the ol' guy dressed as a woman takes a shower with hot babe set-up. But when I do it, it's considered "gross" and "in violation of multiple restraining orders." (Variety)
Director: Neil LaButeCast: Chris Rock, Martin Lawrence, Tracy Morgan, Zoe SaldanaSynopsis: A funeral ceremony turns into a debacle of exposed family secrets and misplaced bodies.
H-h-heeyyyyy!! Move over 1980's nostalgia because here comes an unexpected dose of 1990's "oh yeah, hey, I remember that vaguely." In further Jamie-Foxx-doesn't-want-another-Oscar news, it has been announced that he will star alongside Martin Lawrence in Sheneneh and Wanda. The title characters are the ghetto-fabulous pigeon-heads, Sheneneh Jenkins and Wanda Reid, made popular on the TV programs Martin and In Living Color. Based upon a parody trailer made for the BET Awards, the movie has the winndixie chicks robbing banks to get by. Check out the trailer after the jump. It's what Set It Off would have been like if Queen Latifah had played all the roles. (Variety)
