Malcolm Turner (Martin Lawrence) has been frequently going undercover as "Big Momma" for the last 11 years. This time around, his teenage stepson Trent Pierce (Brandon T. Jackson) visits him while he is working on a case and witnesses the criminal murder of somebody. To keep Trent safe, Malcolm goes undercover as Big Momma for the third time.

In addition to this, Trent also goes undercover as Big Momma's great niece "Charmaine Daisy Pierce" at a performing arts' school for girls. Meanwhile, Trent tries to develop a romance with one of the girls as his real self while "Big Momma" is being pursued by the school's goofball janitor Kurtis Kool (Faizon Love) who has a fascination with big women.

2011 Guide Analysis: "Every year there's an embarassingly bad comedy that becomes a hit and usually it involves Martin Lawrence, Kevin James, Adam Sandler or a combination of the three. When the first 'Momma' took in nearly $174 million worldwide from a $30 million budget, a sequel made sense despite the pain it would cause. Yet even with atrocious reviews and the bad taste left by the first film, the $40 million follow-up still managed to pull in around $140 million worldwide - ensuring Fox would do yet another entry.

This time out, the fat and cross-dressing jokes are dragging down promising "Tropic Thunder" and "Percy Jackson" co-star Brandon T. Jackson who admittedly makes for a more convincing looking woman than Lawrence. Yet the trailer shows all the tired jokes you'd expect, the college setting an obvious move to keep the budget in check. Lawrence has said this will be the last in this series, it's a statement I hope to god he sticks to so we can wash our hands of this soul-destroying muck."
