With good direction by Raja Gosnell, a cool screenplay by Darryl Quarles and Don Rhymer featuring great jokes, an elegant story Quarles, great makeup and fun performances by Martin Lawrence, Nia Long, Paul Giamatti, Anthony Anderson and Ella Mitchell, Big Momma's House is a hilarious movie and should be seen
Despite the intermittently funny moments and Martin Lawrence's performances, Big Momma's House is nothing more than a lame comedy with a one-joke premise whose novelty immediately wears off.
Lame rip off of Mrs. Doubtfire
While it's a high quality meme, it's not a high quality movie
FBI Special Agent goes undercover in order to bust a dangerous criminal and retrieve stolen bank funds. Not Lawrence's best but true to form he delivers a few vintage moments. One-joke premise was then rehashed in two sequels.
Martin Lawrence as an FBI agent who goes undercover as a granny to protect a possible witness faces the usual drag problems in this reheated leftover that brings nothing new to the genre.
Big mommas house is terrific fun, the story is total nonsense but its Lawrence at his complete best with some cheeky humour.
Quite funny but soon gets boring and silly, Martin Lawrence pays his part well but the day suit is nothing on The Nutty Professors suit.
Martin Lawrence gives one of the most side-splitting hilarious performances in comedy history. A merciless classic.
Very funny film well worth a watch.
