Martin Lawrence returns in his biggest, most outrageous role ever as Big Momma, a wisecracking Southern granny with tons of tricks up her sleeve. After witnessing a murder, FBI agent Malcolm Turner (Lawrence) and his stepson (Brandon T. Jackson) go undercover at an all-girl performing arts school. Now Malcolm must catch the bad guys while fending off the advances of the school’s goofball janitor!

Critics Consensus: Unnecessary, unfunny, and generally unwelcome, Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son offers more of the same for fans of Martin Lawrence's perplexingly popular series.

Gimmicky comedy is an unoriginal drag for young teens.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that the third installment in the Big Momma franchise is less obnoxious than the second, Big Momma's House 2, and considerably tamer in terms of over-the-top, crude jokes. That said, there's still a good bit of sexual innuendo (although it's usually expressed by a teenager's wide-eyed exclamation of "damn!") and language (mostly "ass" and "s--t"). Big Momma is a positive influence on the girls she's in charge of and tries to encourage them to ditch bad boyfriends, eat in a healthy manner, and tell the truth. Still, this isn't exactly a message movie, and most of the comedy is broad and lowbrow.
