Consensus: Unnecessary, unfunny, and generally unwelcome, Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son offers more of the same for fans of Martin Lawrence's perplexingly popular series.

An assessment of the film as part of a dissertational examination of Lawrence's contribution to comedic posterity and to African-American cultural history will surely note that the film was not pre-screened for critics in advance.

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

It's frighteningly impressive that a one-note gag has spawned three dreadful films and hundreds of millions of dollars in box office receipts. Wherever will they go next? Big Mommas 3D?

it is likely that this shambles will be the final nail in the coffin of the career of a man once touted as The Next Eddie Murphy.

Weak thus entertaining. The movie has a very bleak plot and seems to lack comedy unlike the other 2 before this one. FBI agent Malcolm Turner and his… More

Not funny. It was hella irritating. Damn why do they try so hard to be funny?! One star for the songs.

I didn't laugh, it was boring and not even worth the time. I really didn't enjoy this, and frankly I can't see why everyone else did like it.… More
