Big Mommas: Like Father Like Son / Reviews

Variety

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.

A marginal improvement on previous outings, if only because Lawrence is slightly lower in the mix.

About the only honestly funny thing in the movie is Faizon Love's uncredited performance in the Joe E. Brown role, as the school maintenance man who's immediately smitten with Big Momma.

A film so drained of entertainment or simple humanity it is difficult to relate to as anything other than industrial artifact.

Won't likely disappoint fans of men-in-drag comedy but doesn't offer much that's original or funny.

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.
