FBI agent Malcolm Turner is known best for being a brilliant, master of disguise. Malcolm's latest assignment sends him to small-town Georgia, where he's assigned to trap a brutal bank robber (and a recent prison escapee) who they suspect will be coming down to visit his ex-girlfriend Sherry and her son. Malcolm sets up a stakeout across from the home of a larger-than-life southern matriarch known as Big Momma, who's about to be visited by Sherry. It's a simple plan, but there's one big problem: Unbeknownst 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 septuagenarian'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/Big Momma must somehow find a ... Written by
Screenwriter Darryl Quarles came up with the idea for the name "Big Momma" because it was what the neighborhood kids used to call his own real life mother. See more »
In addition to the placement of the necklace, the simple fact that Malcolm was wearing the necklace in front of Sherry is a huge error. The necklace belonged to Big Momma. Sherry should have noticed this. See more »

Martin Lawrence is FBI agent, Malcolm Turner, and he specializes in going undercover in disguise. He gets a case involving missing money which turns out to be tied up with a former girlfriend of the bank robber named Lester. Sherry(Nia Long) is implicated in the robbery of the bank, and her grandmother, big momma has a large house which Malcolm is staking out. When big momma leaves for a couple of weeks, Malcolm puts on a dress a wig and impersonates the large woman, even to the point of fooling Sherry and her ten year old son. She believes that grandma is acting strange due to senility.
Lawrence is a talented comic, and he does well as the cross dressing FBI agent, and Nia Long is beautiful as the love interest. I have an allergy to men dressing as women, whether it's old clips of Milton Berle, or Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon in the horrendous, Some Like it Hot, I am not amused. Big Momma's House is just another run of the mill slapstick comedy, and a 5/10.
