Big Momma's House

To corner an escaped bank robber, crack FBI agent and master-of-disguise Malcolm Turner (Lawrence) goes undercover as the obese, grits-cookin', Bible-thumpin' grandmother of the fugitive's former girlfriend Sherry (Long). This contrived set-up precariously in place, Turner predictably falls for comely Sherry. Thereafter, matters alternate between scatological farce and ersatz romantic comedy. The likeable star's characteristic energy is not much in evidence.
