When all's said and done, it turns out to be quite sweet-natured. OK. I laughed. So sue me.

Lawrence plus latex equals laughs.

USA Today
There's something about a plus-size floral housedress that brings out the best in many male comics, and Lawrence is no exception.

Boston Globe
It keeps its promise to throw an hour and a half of lively entertainment at audiences.

Philadelphia Inquirer
My guess is that the film will appeal equally to broad-minded 10-year-olds and their grandparents.

Miami Herald
The kind of stupid-funny movie that should only be seen in a crowded theater.

San Francisco Examiner
A high-spirited, big-bottomed Polaroid of the comedian in a fat suit.

How special.

Big Momma's got game, but she doesn't have much else.

Chicago Sun-Times
Any movie that employs an oven mitt and a plumber's friend in a childbirth scene cannot be all bad, and I laughed a lot.

Los Angeles Times
If you think that Martin Lawrence dressed up as a hefty grandmother is funny, be gone with you .For the rest of you, you'd be better off just taking a ride on the bus. The script.. .is off and stumbling over unfunny one-liners.
