      Movie Info

      FBI agent Malcolm Turner is tough, smart and a master of disguise. There's nothing he can't handle. So Malcolm, taking on his most challenging "role" ever, decides to impersonate the cantankerous Southern granny Big Momma. Using a few tricks of disguise, he completely transforms himself into Big Momma, even taking on the corpulent septuagenarian's everyday routine - from cooking soul food to delivering babies to "testifying" at the local church.

        Quite funny but soon gets boring and silly, Martin Lawrence pays his part well but the day suit is nothing on The Nutty Professors suit.

        Martin Lawrence is hysterical throughout, but the film does no good with just him carrying the load. Big Momma's House is plain and simple and nothing too spectacular or even hysterical. 3.5/5

        A painfully stupid comedy starring Martin Lawrence, Big Momma's House is one of those comedies that fails to deliver on good comedy, and opts to deliver a stupid formula of tasteless humor for the viewer. The film is awful with a poorly written script, poor cast and poor directing. Big Momma's House is a laugh free comedy that tries too hard at making you laugh with its stupid attempt at humor, which doesn't pay off. The use of comedy here is strained, and the filmmakers clearly don't know how to create effective on-screen jokes. For that this film fails. The film is definitely not worth your time as there's nothing memorable or good about this film. The film is a poorly constructed comedy that delivers stupid, painful humor that just doesn't work. Add to that a cast that clearly don't know what they're doing, and you have a horrible comedy on your hands. Martin Lawrence has made some bad films in the past, but Big Momma's House is one of his worst. This is a film that really doesn't have any originality to it, and it's a painful experience to watch. I hated this film, and it is one of the worst comedies that I have seen. Skip this film, as there is nothing funny about this film. The film is just another run of the mill laugh free comedy with a bad cast. Watch something better. If you're looking for something funny and memorable, you won't find it here. This film was horrible, and definitely not worth your time.
