Big Momma’s House

THIS FBI AGENT IS GOING UNDERCOVER… AND HE’S CONCEALING MORE THAN ONE WEAPON.

FBI agent Malcolm Turner (Martin Lawrence) is forced to assume the identity of Big Momma, a very rotund lady; his mission is to keep an eye on her granddaughter. This is an unbelievably contrived story that borrows heavily from Stakeout (1987) and Mrs. Doubtfire (1993). The movie spends a lot of time subjecting the new Big Momma to many situations where “she” risks being exposed. A few funny scenes and great enthusiasm from Lawrence (hoping to reach Eddie Murphy heights), but too many ingredients are dumb and predictable.

2000-U.S. 98 min. Color. Directed by Raja Gosnell. Cast: Martin Lawrence (Malcolm Turner), Nia Long (Sherry Pierce), Paul Giamatti (John), Terrence Howard, Ella Mitchell, Jascha Washington… Cedric the Entertainer.

Trivia: Lawrence fell into a coma and almost died after going out jogging in his fatsuit. Followed by two sequels, starting with Big Momma’s House 2 (2006).
