Critic Consensus: Unnecessary, unfunny, and generally unwelcome, Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son offers more of the same for fans of Martin Lawrence's perplexingly popular series.

Critic Reviews for Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son

All Critics (61) | Top Critics (12)

Looking back, it's strange to remember that the first two movies were both hits, and that Paul Giamatti and Terrence Howard even saw enough in the premise to sign up for the original. At this point, it's really all just flab.

The father/stepson angle applies a much-needed Heimlich maneuver to a series that was choking, but it's not enough.

Movie Metropolis

It's frighteningly impressive that a one-note gag has spawned three dreadful films and hundreds of millions of dollars in box office receipts. Wherever will they go next? Big Mommas 3D?

What Culture

it is likely that this shambles will be the final nail in the coffin of the career of a man once touted as The Next Eddie Murphy.

The National

A mashup of 'Some Like It Hot' (leering rooster-in-the-henhouse voyeurism) and 'Glee' (peppy musical interludes), that, on the plus side, grapples with the potent issue of young black male identity...

If you didn't enjoy the first two movies, don't see this.

Audience Reviews for Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son


Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son was a big fail. The first one will continue to be the best of them all and should have ended with that one. I laughed maybe twice and became very bored about a quarter in. It is just a mess of a film that felt rushed and under developed. The movie tried too hard to be funny and ended up just being another eye rolling sequel. Hopefully this will be the end of it.
