Big Momma's: Like Father, Like Son (PG)

The critical consensus

A comedy concept funny chiefly for its flagrant disregard of common sense – specifically, that elaborate full-body prosthetic make-up could be slapped on in seconds.

*(*)(*)(*)(*)Siobhan Synnot, The Scotsman, 15/02/2011

Whoever demanded a third instalment 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.

*(*)(*)(*)(*)Anna Smith, Empire Online, 16/02/2011

If you happen to get a kick out of morbid obesity, then go see. Otherwise, avoid at all costs.

*(*)(*)(*)(*)Daily Record, 18/02/2011

It’s a marginal improvement on previous outings, if only because Lawrence is slightly lower in the mix.

**(*)(*)(*)Tom Dawson, Total Film, 16/02/2011

Has there ever been a threequel less welcome than this?

*(*)(*)(*)(*)Anthony Quinn, The Independent, 18/02/2011

If Big Momma 4 comes out – well, that would be the time to make the booking with Dignitas and get the easyJet flights to Zurich.

*(*)(*)(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 17/02/2011

It's hard to see the value of this sporadic Martin Lawrence-wears-a-fat-suit-and-a-dress saga.

*(*)(*)(*)(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 19/02/2011

Can there really be a comparative and a superlative for "unfunny"? It doesn't make sense to describe this witless, embarrassing third film in the Big Momma franchise as "the unfunniest".
