Big Momma's House | 2000 | PG-13 | - 5.4.5

Martin Lawrence is a detective who must protect a mother and child, but the only way he can do so is to go undercover as a large, overbearing Southern grandma known as "Big Momma." Also with Nia Long, Paul Giamatti, Terrence Dashon Howard and Eric Arthur Linden. [1:30]

SEX/NUDITY 5 - Several instances of sexual innuendo (including references to oral sex and masturbation) and a couple of kisses. Through a window we see silhouettes of two people who appear to be having intercourse (oral sex is also implied), but they really aren't involved in anything sexual. A woman and a man dressed as a woman are in bed together holding each other (there are two erection jokes/references). A man tries to kiss a woman and then tries to grab her breasts. A man and woman kiss in bed (he's on top of her with his shirt off; but no other nudity is visible). We see a naked woman's side and backside as she undresses and gets into a shower, and we see a naked man in bed with a sheet covering his genitals. We see several shots of a pregnant woman in labor with her legs spread, but only her bare inner thighs are visible.

VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - Mostly played for laughs. A man is shot in the shoulder (blood is visible around the wound) and a man is shot in the back (no blood is visible). A woman punches a man's crotch, a boy punches a man's face, a man punches another's face and groin, a man head butts another, a man and woman exchange kicks and punches several times, a man is kicked in the face a few times and his hair is pulled, a man kicks a man through a window (we see blood on the man's cheek), a woman elbows a man in the gut and then flips him, a man flips a woman over his shoulder and kicks her, a boy elbows another boy and knocks him to the ground, and a man slaps a woman's backside. A dog growls and looks like it's going to attack a man but doesn't. Threatening with guns. We see a man getting ready to be shot on a TV screen, and then the camera pulls away and we hear shots fired off-screen. We see a woman on a toilet passing gas; also, lots of scatological humor.

LANGUAGE 5 - One F-word derivative (in lyrics), many anatomical references, lots of scatological references, many mild obscenities, and several insults.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
