His subsequent turn as a guy trying to buy a slice of pizza in Spike Lee's Do the Right Thing (1989) led to choice roles in House Party (1990) and Boomerang (1992); a high-profile "One Night Stand" comedy special on HBO; his own television show, "Martin" (1992-97); and a hosting gig on "Def Comedy Jam," making Lawrence one of the busiest comics of the 1990s.
His star continued to burn brightly with the Will Smith buddy film Bad Boys (1995) and its sequel, Bad Boys II (2003), but Lawrence has made his biggest splash to date clad in a fat suit in the hit comedies Big Momma's House (2000) and Big Momma's House 2 (2006).
When an affluent Los Angeles family's beloved patriarch passes away, his dutiful eldest son is in charge of the funeral -- which soon becomes a fiasco thanks to a misplaced corpse and a colorful cast of uptight attendees.
