We get a full serving of silly with barely a taste of funny and entertaining. No big laughs here.

It's The Nutty Professor meets Mrs. Doubtfire, but without the humor of the former or the heart of the latter.

...neither funny nor stimulating.

[Big Momma] is about as old as her pantyhose.

You may find yourself waiting for a commercial break. Sadly, it never comes.

Witless, formulaic material.

The movie is more than a single never-ending fat joke, but not much more.

Seeing Martin's faux [breast] appear on his shoulder is awfully funny, until about 45 minutes of the same joke being repeated ad nauseam.

A fat suit with a paper-thin plot does not a movie make.

This is a film that appears to have been made without benefit of a script -- it's a seemingly random collection of shots and scenes strung together with no concern for continuity, common sense, or an audience's intelligence.

The whole project works so hard at creating funny situations that Lawrence gets no chance to be funny as himself.

Not even the talented Lawrence can make it very funny.

The thin sliver of a plot is just an excuse to get Lawrence in costume and let him do his thing.

If you loved the TV series, then you'll love this. If you hated the series then you might as well catch the movie on cable.

This movie may well disappoint fans seeking the blue-streaked Lawrence of stand-up and tabloid infamy.

The saddest thing about Big Momma's House is that it wastes a talented cast in roles that force them to act like idiots in order for the plot to advance.
