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.
PROFANITY 5 - One F-word derivative (in lyrics), many anatomical references,
lots of scatological references, many mild obscenities, and several insults. [profanity glossary]
