Big Momma's House is a trilogy of films starring Martin Lawrence as an FBI agent who specializes in undercover disguises. The films are a mix of comedy and drama/action.

After a bank robber escapes from prison, his ex-girlfriend Sherry Pierce (Nia Long) flees with her young son Trent to the home of her grandmother, Hattie Mae Pierce aka Big Momma. Unbeknownst to Sherry, the real Big Momma is out of town and undercover FBI agent Malcolm Turner has stepped into a FatSuit to impersonate her.

Later, Sherry "meets" Malcolm out of the FatSuit, where he introduces himself as a local electrician, giving him a chance to bond with Sherry and her son as a possible romantic partner / father figure. Malcolm is torn between his duty as an agent and his growing feelings for Sherry.

The second film, Big Momma's House 2, has Malcolm galvanized by the murder of an FBI colleague, who was undercover with Tom Fuller, a former Military Intelligence Specialist now in the private sector and suspected of trying to sell an NSA backdoor on the black market. Since he has officially retired from field work for the sake of his family and his boss won't let him in on the case, he covertly reassumes the Big Momma disguise to become the new nanny at the Fuller residence in Orange County. Turner-as-Big Momma bonds with the Fullers and their 3 children, while trying to get to the bottom of Tom's involvement.

* {{Hilarious in Hindsight}}: Ritha, played by Tichina Arnold is giving birth and Big Momma has to deliver the baby. When she Big Momma tells her to close her legs, she snaps, "THEY DON'T CLOSE." To which Big Momma responds, "That might be how you got this way in the first place." Martin and Tichina's character Pam traded barbs constantly on Martin, so seeing them do the same in a movie, a few years after the show ended is pretty funny.
