Big Momma's House

Big Momma's House

Synopsis

Martin Lawrence's FBI agent dons a fat suit and pretends to be an old lady in the name of the law.

About

Martin Lawrence is an undercover FBI agent who pulls on a wig and a fat suit to protect a federal witness in this prosthetic-heavy comedy, the paucity of which is underlined by the presence of Raja Gosnell (Scooby-Doos number one and one and two) behind the camera. This'll only appeal to lovers of Lawrence and those with an insatiable appetite for the Wayans family. On the bright side, those who love the film will find Big Momma's House 2 every bit as entertaining, since it's even crasser.
