Big Momma's House 2 (2006)

Unfunny and unoriginal. In other words, a perfect piece of evidence for opponents of pointless movie sequels.

This is funny mostly for its brazen disregard of common sense -- specifically, the idea that elaborate full-body prosthetic makeup could be slapped on in seconds by a cop on the run.

If Lawrence makes you laugh, you'd be better off watching him do stand-up.

Big Momma may be larger than life, but the shtick is older than old.

Probably review-proof for openers, pic is so episodic and flat it should be a letdown even to those amused by the original.

It's thin, but enough to make you forget the cold for 90 minutes.

Even in the visually arresting fat-suit Martin Lawrence extracts very few chuckles due to Don Rhymer's awful script and John Whitesell's flimsy direction.

April 16, 2009 Full Review Source:

A truly insipid affair that makes the first film seem like classic comedy.

Robin Williams, to his eternal credit, never came up with a Mrs. Doubtfire sequel.

No logic, no laughs, a classic 'take-the-money-and-run' sequel which had me praying for a projector malfunction or some other excuse to leave the theater early.

It's mildly, amiably funny, in a juvenile way.

Lawrence has his moments, mostly when he's not dressed up as Big Momma; he's progressed to the point where he deserves a better vehicle than this. Long is wasted, appearing in only a handful of scenes.

Guys who direct snuff flicks in the slums of Khazakstan probably look at Big Momma's House 2 and think "Hey, I'm not such a terrible filmmaker after all!"

So desperate that barely a half hour passes before we get the inevitable jokes about Dr. Phil, Oprah, Al Sharpton, Tupac and Billy Dee.

Martin Lawrence continues to run around in a fatsuit impersonating a sassy obese grandma in order to take down criminals and slaver over beautiful women.

Just like the first film, it's another basic, unoriginal fish-out-of-water story stocked with predictable plot twists and physical comedy.

It's really just a ploy for some more flaccid fat-suit antics that are as short of inspiration as Big Momma is of breath.

February 14, 2006 Full Review Source:

Martin Lawrence is a broad comic performer who sometimes hits the funny bone with a mallet -- and sometimes, well, goes wide of the mark by several yards.

February 11, 2006 Full Review Source: Guardian

An exhausting, not-hilarious, multiple-resolution ending, in which Big Momma does funny dances with a cheerleading squad, runs on the beach like Bo Derek and chases down the bad guys -- all while fat.

There's Big Momma leading a bunch of little schoolgirls in booty-shaking cheerleading lessons. There she is in Bo Derek cornrows, bouncing down the beach. And, hey, we already mentioned the spa.

The second instalment in the Big Momma franchise is extremely weak when compared to the original, now they are just getting desperate and cannot go anywhere else in this series! The freshness of these films was weak to start, but now it's just flushing away! Big Momma's House 2 does have it's comedy and moments of enjoyment, but nothing else!
