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.

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

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.

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.

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

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.

The least necessary sequel this side of Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo.

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.

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.

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.
Full Review | Original Score: D

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.
