Undercover Agent Malcolm Turner is back and this time he's out to expose the suspected designer of a deadly computer "worm" that would allow outside forces access to sophistical and critical government intelligence files. But unfortunately, the only way the crafty agent can get next to the worm's creator, Tom Fuller, is to access the programmer's Orange County home as the new "nanny" to Fuller and his wife Leah's children: toddler Andrew and his two older sisters, Carrie and Molly. This means that Malcolm must once again rely on his sure-fire alter ego, the take-no-prisoners Hattie Mae Pierce, a.k.a. "Big Momma," to bring down the bad guys and prove that a woman's work is never done! But once undercover, the job proves another tough juggling act for Big Momma as "she" must manage the hectic lives of the three Fuller kids, keep up with their myriad of daily activities, and handle the many household chores, all while secretly trying to dig up information on Tom's computer virus. Of ... Written by

Throughout the movie, Malcolm uses 2 different methods to transform his body into Big Momma. One is through the use of a body suit (made of a stuffed cloth material, which is used when Big Momma is wearing a dress) and the other one is through the extensive use of prosthetic makeup (for when Big Momma is showing more skin, at the spa and at the beach). In the beach scene, Malcolm is clearly using the prosthetics when Big Momma is in a one piece bathing suit as much skin is exposed. Big Momma then puts on a big sun dress to cover up (while still wearing the bathing suit and prosthetics). Moments later, she starts chasing Bishop down the beach to the pier. After Bishop jumps off the pier and Malcolm (now with his mask off) looks over the pier, you can see under the big sun dress on his right shoulder that he is wearing the fat suit, not the prosthetics. There was no opportunity for him to have switched from one to the other. See more »
You need to realize that this is not a smart comedy. It is silly and some impossible things happen. When you are going to see this film prepare yourself for that and you will enjoy it. It is impossible for anyone to change into a credible fat lady in less than an hour, much less in a few minutes. But you need to let that kind of stuff go so the comedy in it gets to you. The father of the kids just looks amazed at the things the nanny can do but does not try to help her. Again, don't try to make sense of it. There is a scene where I was about to wet my pants because I could not stop laughing, that is when Big Momma dresses up as Bo Derek in that famous scene in 10. I liked it and so can you.
