This movie is rotten.
January 1, 2000
[Martin Lawrence] delivers.
January 1, 2000
[Big Momma] is about as old as her pantyhose.

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

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

The whole project works so hard at creating funny situations that Lawrence gets no chance to be funny as himself.
January 1, 2000
This movie may well disappoint fans seeking the blue-streaked Lawrence of stand-up and tabloid infamy.
January 1, 2000
It's not only inferior to all Murphy's movies (even Coming to America), it's a lot less funny than most of Lawrence's own film work.
January 1, 2000
The movie has some big laughs, yes, but never reaches takeoff velocity.
January 1, 2000
Had me cackling and stomping my feet along with the rest of the preview audience.
January 1, 2000
It's as big a failure as Battlefield Earth.
January 1, 2000
Lawrence doesn't give Big Momma any special, hidden slyness.
January 1, 2000
This is pretty much a lazy film with a few lighthearted moments and no substance.
January 1, 2000
Farcical adroitness and Martin's ablity to turn on the charm keep Big Momma's House perking along.
January 1, 2000
The plot's going nowhere, so why not bring on the fun?
January 1, 2000
Big Momma is broadly entertaining and efficient.
January 1, 2000
There's something about a plus-size floral housedress that brings out the best in many male comics, and Lawrence is no exception.
