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.

Not even the talented Lawrence can make it very funny.

Big Momma's House is as uneven as the readout on a binge dieter's bathroom scale.

Big Momma's House gives even the notion of summer movies a bad name.
January 1, 2000
Other than a few fun moments, Big Momma's House doesn't turn out to be the rip-roaring drag queen comedy it promised to be

The movie has some big laughs, yes, but never reaches takeoff velocity.
January 1, 2000
It's as big a failure as Battlefield Earth.

Lawrence doesn't give Big Momma any special, hidden slyness.

A formulaic misfire.
