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
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.
An assessment of the film as part of a dissertational examination of Lawrence's contribution to comedic posterity and to African-American cultural history will surely note that the film was not pre-screened for critics in advance.
It seems fair to point out that of all the cross-dressing comedies of recent decades, none has channeled Some Like It Hot quite so thoroughly.
A film so drained of entertainment or simple humanity it is difficult to relate to as anything other than industrial artifact.
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.

Not funny. It was hella irritating. Damn why do they try so hard to be funny?! One star for the songs.
