it is likely that this shambles will be the final nail in the coffin of the career of a man once touted as The Next Eddie Murphy.

If you didn't enjoy the first two movies, don't see this.

It's frighteningly impressive that a one-note gag has spawned three dreadful films and hundreds of millions of dollars in box office receipts. Wherever will they go next? Big Mommas 3D?

Still moronic, chauvinistic, clichéd, and just not funny - and staggeringly less so than the first two.

The airless Matthew Fogel-Don Rhymer script makes one long for the snark and sass of Madea.

The movie is at least 20 minutes too long. Actually, it's 107 minutes too long.

Big Momma has laid a gigantic egg.

The well-established Big Momma combination of cheap and cheesy chuckles, sex-obsessed banter, and slapstick so broad even the biggest of mommas could easily hide behind it.

This is not a case of doubling the fun so much as an anxious attempt to revive a franchise running out of gas.

John Whitesell, who helmed BM2, keeps the gender-flipping gags firing with a sense of seriousness that seems blind to the inanity of the granny-panty flimsy plot.

It's amazing really, when you look back at the Big Momma's House film series, how many major crimes can be solved by dressing up as a fat woman.

[This] extraordinarily witless movie operates as a checklist for cultural and racial clichés.

A rancid, unwatchable load, devoid of mirth and joy, and an enemy to all that is good.

It would be nice to report that, in the end, Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son is just innocuous. Instead, it's rather insidious

It's a true rubber-necker's delight, a comedy so inconceivably tacky that it will make you question whether or not you're laughing at the film or with it.

Lawrence's gender-bending jokes are played out, and his slapstick is wooden and slow. It's understandable: Clowning around underneath that fat suit must be exhausting. Almost as much as watching it.
