If you want to enjoy Big Momma’s House, in which Martin Lawrence’s federal agent goes undercover as an obese Southern grandmother to catch an escaped convict — Nia Long’s ex boyfriend — here’s what you must find funny: bathroom noises, fat people, plot holes the size of fat people, near metronomic eye bugging, whiplash inducing double takes, sluggish timing, repeated use of the words ”ass” and ”daaaamn!” Tee hee?
