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.

I was afraid that this movie would be so silly it would be bad, but it really wasn't. It was OK. It had some funny moments. Like Big Momma on the beach in a swim suit, That was good. Martin Lawerence's makeup is amazing in this. While the female voice is too fake sounding to pass as real, the fat suit could pass for real. Now, I would think if you touched the suit, it wouldn't feel like real skin, so I don't know how he could have pulled off the massage at the spa. Some glaring plot holes were how could Malcom risk cleaning the family's house at night out of his Big Momma disguise. And one minute Malcom would go somewhere else without his disguise then magically appear at another place as Big Momma. It never showed him lugging around the Momma disguise. But one positive was Martin Lawerence didn't play the part as really over the top, so wasn't annoying. A big plus.
FINAL VERDICT: If you are looking for a comedy, it would be worth watching.
