In some professions, going the extra mile is part of the job.
In Big Momma’s House (2000), Malcolm Turner (Martin Lawrence) is a FBI agent. His specialty is using complex disguises to catch the bad guys.
His latest case is protecting Sherry Pierce (Nia Long). Her ex-boyfriend, a convicted bank robber is on the loose. To make sure that Sherry and her son are safe, Malcolm impersonates Big Momma, Sherry’s elderly, corpulent grandmother. While it starts off as a job, Malcolm’s feelings for Sherry start to veer away from the professional arena and into the personal arena. Will Malcolm reveal his true self and can he complete his mission?
Following in the footsteps of Eddie Murphy, Martin Lawrence plays both the comedy and the action while using the fat suit to up the comedy ante.
Do I recommend it? Maybe.
