    Big Momma's House is not perfect in any means, but it is smart in its own way but tries to be hilarious in every single way possible and that got on nerves because it doesn't always work. The plot is smart and the characters are fun although not deep enough to make us care for them. So if you are just looking for some old school popcorn movie to watch with friends on a Saturday afternoon this is it. Expand

    Its not the most smart action comedy of the genre, but its got laughs and the characters are actually interesting.

    Epic movie that I love to see the week-ends with the family, just hate how Often they are passing the film on television. But either way, is a comic movie, and with a little back story.

    This movie is generally good, however, the script is not amazing! One moment you are on the edge of your seat and the next you are rolling around on the floor laughing! A MUST SEE! 1O 1O 1O!

  1. When all's said and done, it turns out to be quite sweet-natured. OK. I laughed. So sue me.

    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.

    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.
