It goes down like a canned but genial '80s comedy: Without fanfare or much nutrition; part of your balanced breakfast.
50
Kind of a drag when it resorts to frantic slapstick and tired action-comedy tropes, but modestly engaging during stretches that suggest the project would have worked better as an exuberant musical.
40
Won't likely disappoint fans of men-in-drag comedy but doesn't offer much that's original or funny.
40
Hilariously horrible when it isn't just plain awful.
33
Lawrence's gender-bending jokes are played out, and his slapstick is wooden and slow.
25
A humorless mashup of "White Chicks" and "Glee."
25
Fresh or not, creatively merited or not, here it comes: the third installment of Martin Lawrence's big, dopey franchise.
20
Whoever demanded a third installment of Lawrence's mirthless mash-up of weak gags and cross-dressing horrors should be imprisoned and forced to watch it on repeat until they repent. Avoid.
11
The comic, his career now apparently in total free fall, tackles the (dual) role(s) so broadly (no pun intended) that it's just plain annoying.
10
Starved of humor and energy, the interminable Big Mommas: Life Father, Like Son could force Lawrence and co-star Brandon T. Jackson undercover for real.
