Big Momma's House 2 movie review - Aussieboyreviews


The sequel to the decent Big Momma’s House is worse in all categories; it’s not as funny or delightful. Teens are suitable audiences for this crime-comedy film.


To investigate an intelligence agent who is developing a computer worm that poses security risks, FBI agent Malcolm Turner reprises his disguise as the large grandmother to work undercover as a nanny.

Aussie boy's thoughts

It’s a completely unnecessary sequel that entirely lacks the original’s source of fun, nudges over towards a more tiresome crime story and really just bores you. It’s such a pity to bring back a brilliant cast to only provide crime themes and briefly fulfil only a quarter of the fans’ expectations.

Martin Lawrence, the pacing, the concept and the value of this dumb story is five times as worser as the hilariously engaging predecessor. The performances don’t mean anything, but it’s dearly unfortunate that there’s such brilliant performers who are utterly wasted on a story that makes sure to involve some really fun moments, but boringly sheds to crime topics.

The first Big Momma’s House was an example of what the comedy-crime genre does, but this is just flat-out blankness. With the themes it deals with and the extreme lack of charm it owns, there’s really no point in this severely empty disappointment.
