Some businesses have trouble with sunk costs and are unable to abandon a lost cause. Twentieth Century Fox has this problem with the movie franchise Big Momma’s House.
After the Box Office and DVD run of Big Momma’s house, instead of Twentieth Century Fox admitting their mistake and abandoning the project, they went ahead and made the sequal Big Momma’s House 2 and are currently in production of the movie Big Momma’s House 3, called Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son.
When Twentieth Century fox was asked why they haven’t abounded the project that should have stayed as a rejected idea from a brain storming session; the president of Twentieth Century Fox responded, “We have spent over $100 Million dollars creating the Big Momma’s House Franchise.”
That is BS. Twentieth Century Fox haven’t created a Big Momma’s House franchise, they have created a monstrosity. I have seen better things come out of the Ark of the Covenant.
Bankruptcy laws exist to turn unproductive economic units into productive economic units. Martin Lawrence as an actor is a productive economic unit. An actress playing a Momma is a productive economic unit. A fat suit can be a productive economic unit. Martin Lawrence playing a momma in a fat suit is an unproductive economic unit.
We need to force the Big Momma’s House franchise to declare bankruptcy in order to provide more value to society with our scarce resources.
If Big Momma’s House 3 (Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son) hits the box office, then all three act stories and movie trilogies everywhere will move down a peg. Because people will then realize that anything, I mean anything can be made into a trilogy.
