Big Momma's House

San Francisco Chronicle
When all's said and done, it turns out to be quite sweet-natured. OK. I laughed. So sue me.
Lawrence plus latex equals laughs.
San Francisco Examiner
A high-spirited, big-bottomed Polaroid of the comedian in a fat suit.
There's something about a plus-size floral housedress that brings out the best in many male comics, and Lawrence is no exception.
Any movie that employs an oven mitt and a plumber's friend in a childbirth scene cannot be all bad, and I laughed a lot.
New York Post
Intermittently funny, often vulgar.
Lawrence is so ON that he appears to be gunning for clockwork bursts of audience approval.
The sight and sound of Lawrence in fat-lady drag remains engaging throughout; script may often let him down, forcing him to keep things afloat almost single-handedly.
Martin Lawrence, no Eddie Murphy, takes a reheated cross-dressing shtick and turns it into something to elate your inner fourth-grader.
Luke Y. Thompson
If Big Momma's House isn't as bad as you imagined, then you've no imagination at all.
