One of the funniest undercover comedies ever! (by actormichaelo)
A few years ago I bought Big Momma's House on VHS at laughed all the way through! This movie is as close to perfection as a comedy can be, it can bring out your silly side, your emotional side and your serious side.Big Mommas House tell's the story of two cops who get put on a case to find a murder, in order to catch him they have to also make his ex-girlfriend confess to hiding evidence to the police although when they find out she wants to stay with her long lost grandmother, they have to go undercover on the grandmother who likes to call herself 'Big Momma'.Martin Lawrence <more>
Bad Boys gives a genius performance as Malcom who goes undercover as Big Momma and has excellent comic timing, Nia Long Stigmata plays Sherry, the ex-girlfriend of a criminal on the run to find her and his son. She also gives a great performance and for a child actor Jascha Washington gives a great performance.Excellent script, Excellent cast and Excellent story...Great all round!
Big Momma's House is a brilliant!! movie, one of the best I have seen in a long time. I think that Martin Lawrence played a great part as big momma in this film. My favourite part of the film is the bathroom scene!!, how can we all forget that scene in a hurry, When Martin Lawrence character Malcolm Turner sneaks into big momma's house and hides surveillance equipment in big mommas house and while he is doing this big momma comes into the house so Malcolm turner hides in the Bathroom away from big momma, then big momma came into the bathroom and ran to the toilet pan and put her pants <more>
down to her ankles and says bless this oh lord and after that Malcolm turners character is nearly sick with the smell, then all of a sudden big momma starts to take her cloths and you see her fat ass and well lets just say that it was not a pleasant sight. The other scene I like in the film is the scene where a Girl is having a baby and "The fake big momma", tries to get the baby out by plunger. I would advise one to see this movie because it sure made me laugh but it had a sad twitch to it.
Martin Lawrence has always been a comic genius, I enjoyed him when he played Big Mamma. I thought he did a good job with that role and the movie was funny. If you are going for a good laugh go watch the movie.
On my top ten comedy list (by garber-1)
Start with a police stake out with Martin Lawrence and Paul Giamatti and toss in Anthony Anderson a cop want-to-be security guard and you have everything for a hilarious film. Add a little "oh so fine" Nia Long, who is the base line of the film, and let Martin do his trademark high jinks as this film gets funnier by the minute. A must see for Martin Lawrence comedy fans. Don't watch the TV version!
A Brilliant Film! (by AlexanderJ337)
A few people have said that this film is unrealistic and yeah, you're right, but if all films were true-to-life, what would be the point in cinema.I admit that this kind of comedy may be an acquired taste, but I for one found it hilarious. It is mostly original, and there really is a laugh-per-minute script. For all of those that gave this a bad review, we must have been watching different movies, because I loved the film and all of the squeals!9/10
Without a doubt the funniest movie of last year (by faith40)
Malcolm Martin Lawrence decides to investigate the case of a criminal who recently escaped from prison. The way Malcolm investigates the case is to dress up as a famous neighborhood icon, Big Momma, after the real Big Momma leaves for awhile. The woman he is going to investigate is Sherry Nia Long . Sherry was the former lover of the man who escaped from prison. Little does Malcolm know that he will become attracted to Sherry once he meets her. I didn't really think that "Big Momma's House" was a ripoff of "The Nutty Professor." They have a lot of similarities, <more>
but I think it's a lot more like "Mrs. Doubtfire." I thought "Big Momma's House" was funnier than "Nutty Professor II: The Klumps." While both are great comedy movies with tons of laughs, this movie wins my vote for funniest movie of the year by far. Just about all the movie's pranks and lines are hilarious, especially when Malcolm slips up and says or does things that'll make you wonder if Malcolm has forgotten that he's dressed up as Big Momma. Anybody who likes comedy movies such as "Tootsie" or "Mrs. Doubtfire" should really like "Big Momma's House," it's the must see comedy of the year!
Funnier Than I Thought It Might Be (by ccthemovieman-1)
This was a surprisingly good comedy, despite the predictability of it and the typically-sappy Hollywood ending. Nevertheless, this film has a bunch of laugh- out-loud scenes and jokes and Martin Lawrence is a likable guy. He has the ability to make us laugh just by making goofy faces. His best were when he was trapped in the bathroom behind the shower curtain when the real "Big Momma" Ella Mitchell was taking a dump a few feet away! The looks of Lawrence's face during that period were hilarious! Lawrence eventually dresses as a big fat woman and provides laughs doing so. Ever <more>
since the early days of television and Milton Berle, people have laughed at men dressing up imitating women. Pretending to be a 300-pound woman makes it even funnier.Throw in a pretty female lead Nia Long and a little drama to go along with the yuks and it winds up being a decent movie.
Big Momma's House is nothing new or innovative, but it is a lot of fun and absolutely hilarious. Think Mrs. Doubtfire but with black humour. Typical of other disguise films of the early 2000's like White Chicks , Big Momma's House certainly needs to be given the benefit of the doubt. Everyone knows there's something different about Big Momma, but nobody can tell the difference between Malcolm FBI agent impersonating the southern voluptuous grandmother and the real Big Momma. Of course, Malcolm falls for the girl who he's trying to incriminate. Of course there's <more>
going to be a happy ending and of course the bad guy is going to get caught. We all know that. There's no surprises. But Big Momma's House is absolutely hilarious and was a lot of fun to watch. Genuinely made me laugh out loud. I'd say it's up there for me in terms of comedy movies.
Wow, this is my third 8/10 in a row, i know how to pick my films, first there was "The Italian Job" then "Staying Alive" now this, this deserves the 8/10 for sure, i didn't laugh much but it was more the story than the laughs that got this film my seal of approval welcome to the list my friend! *The following plot is taken from Wikipedia: FBI agent Malcolm Turner Martin Lawrence is known best for being a master of disguise. Malcolm's latest assignment sends him to a small-town Cartersville, Georgia where he's assigned to trap a brutal bank robber and a <more>
recent prison escapee Terrence Howard who they suspect will be coming down to visit his ex-girlfriend Sherry Nia Long and her son, Trent Jascha Washington . Malcolm sets up a stakeout across from the home of a larger-than-life Southern matriarch named Hattie Mae Pierce, aka Big Momma, who's about to be visited by Sherry. It's a simple plan, but there's one big problem; unknown to Sherry, Big Momma has unexpectedly left town. So Malcolm, decides to impersonate the cantankerous, Southern granny. Using a few tricks of disguise, he completely transforms himself into Big Momma, even taking on the corpulent 70 year old's everyday routine-from cooking soul food to delivering babies to "testifying" at the local church. In the mean time, Malcolm starts falling for Sherry, who may or may not be hiding some stolen cash. Now, Malcolm must somehow find a way to nab his criminal and the lady.So overall, it's a very enjoyable film, i recommend the sequel, though it's not as good.8/10
