Big Momma's House
No one tries very hard in Big Momma's House, so your enjoyment of this Martin Lawrence vehicle pretty much depends on how much amusement you're able to derive from a guy dressed up as a very ample woman. The setup is of the eye-rolling, only-in-Hollywood nature: Lawrence, as detective Malcolm Turner, is after a killer, and apparently the only way to capture him is to pose as the bad guy's ex-girlfriend's grandmother, who--the film cannot stress this point too much--is quite large. Apparently, Sherry (Nia Long), the young woman in question--she's as attractive as Big Momma is, well, you know--is none too bright, for she falls for Malcolm's ruse, which of course ostensibly amuses mainly because it's so transparent. She at least has an excuse--she hasn't seen Big Momma in two years--but Big Momma's oblivious friends must be functional morons. Screenwriters Darryl Quarles and Don Rhymer didn't tax themselves very much, as they have Malcolm-as-Big-Momma going through fairly predictable motions--botching a meal and delivering a baby unconventionally (Big Momma's a midwife), but ruling at basketball and self-defence and protecting Sherry while trying vainly not to flirt with her. Paul Giamatti is wasted as Malcolm's partner; director Raja Gosnell's clunky sense of comic rhythm is bewildering, because he used to be an editor (he brought a similar lack of magic to Home Alone 3). Lawrence won't have anyone forgetting Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon in Some Like It Hot, Dustin Hoffman in Tootsie, or Robin Williams in Mrs Doubtfire anytime soon. Eddie Murphy in The Nutty Professor 2: The Klumps is far more accomplished, versatile, and funny. --David Kronke

Big Momma's House 2
Funnyman Martin Lawrence steps back into the latex fatsuit for Big Momma's House 2, the sequel to one of Lawrence's biggest hits. Malcolm Turner (Lawrence, Bad Boys) goes undercover, turning his Big Momma disguise into a nanny for a computer company executive who may be concocting a means to hack into military databases. But that's just a pretense to get Big Momma coping with a perfectionist mum and her three kids, who are all dysfunctional in cute and easily resolved ways. Naturally, Big Momma dispenses life lessons and catches the crooks while Lawrence does his best to milk his fat drag act for cheap laughs. Unfortunately, those cheap laughs never quite pay off; the script is a wastebasket of cliches and clumsy set-ups for gags that never seem worth the effort. The movie desperately wants to appeal to women with cute kids while luring men with a spa visit featuring scantily clad Victoria's Secret models. Even Lawrence's fans will find themselves snoozing through this one. --Bret Fetzer

Product Description

Box set containing two popular comedy movies. In 'Big Momma's House' (2000), FBI Agent Malcolm Turner (Martin Lawrence) is sent undercover to protect a vital witness and her son. When a notorious bank robber escapes from prison, Turner heads for the house of key witness Big Momma, where he believes the robber is heading. But Big Momma has gone away and so Turner decides to impersonate the old lady in order to trick the robber. However, when he meets and falls for the con's ex-girlfriend, things get far more complicated than he ever imagined. In 'Big Momma's House 2' (2006), in order to trap a brutal bank robber, Malcolm (Lawrence) goes deep undercover, impersonating a fun-loving granny known as Big Momma. But saving the country is the least of Big Momma's problems as he takes on his ultimate challenge - being nanny/housekeeper to the suspect's dysfunctional family.

5.0 out of 5 stars Big Mommas House 24 May 2010
I loved the first Big Mommas House movie.very funny.Plenty of laughs.And i adore Martin Lawrence.Not too keen on the follow up though.I got quite a bit bored of it after the first half hour.Good value for money though,as your getting two for the price of one.I reckon follow ups of any movie or never as good as the first.....

Both films follow Martin Lawerence who plays an undercover cop who dressed up as "Big Momma" to infiltrate a criminal gang. The plots just an excuse to get dressed up as a big woman with a big heart, big personality and big views. Instead of going for gross out like Nutty Professor, here its more in the subtle things like catchphrases words and the body language and as a result some of the genius is missed first time round and I wasn't laughing out loud very much. However as with underplayed parts sometimes you'll enjoy it more second time around. There are one or two laugh out loud parts and the sequel for once isn't awful compared to the original so if you like one, you'll enjoy number two and the bonus features show how all the make ups done too.
