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.

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 »
Martin Lawrence has a knack for humor, that I must acknowledge. His roles in National Security, Bad Boys (1), and even the original Big Momma's House had me convulsively jolting with laughter. However, my elicited response to the monotonous and convoluted scenes of Big Momma's House 2 was that of sheer bemusement. I mean come-on! Everyone knows that sequels are generally weaker than the originals but the extent to which this film has fallen in my voting ranks is humiliating! Even Martin Lawrence's high esteem has grown demoralizing in my perception. The thought of Martin adorning himself in the attire of a corpulent and homely black woman can only be humorous for so long before viewers are compelled to force laughs. In the original, the objective of dressing up in this fashion was more overt (although still pretty poor) but in Big Momma's House 2, the repetition of such change of character lacks reason. The only difference now, is Big Momma is on the pursuit for a suspect Caucasian male (Mark Moses), she has to do the laundry, tend to the hectic schedule of three hyperactive juveniles and cope with the implausible conceptions of a likewise arduous mother (Emily Procter).
