Our Score
Martin Lawrence's FBI man plays second fiddle to his wannabe rapper stepson (Brandon T Jackson) in this third instalment of the crass but popular cross-dressing comedy series. There are hints of Fame and Glee as both undercover agent and teenager don fatsuits and frillies to hunt missing evidence inside a girls' performing arts school. But, although the setting is literally new school, nothing much else is. The plot is corny and the humour is the well-established Big Momma combination of cheap and cheesy chuckles, sex-obsessed banter, and slapstick so broad even the biggest of mommas could easily hide behind it.


FBI agent Malcolm dons his old lady disguise for a third time as he goes undercover to investigate a murder in a girls' school. His teenage son, who witnessed the crime, is forced to join him on the case, assuming a female identity of his own to enrol as a student. Comedy, with Martin Lawrence and Brandon T Jackson.
