Undercover Agent Malcolm Turner is back and this time he's out to expose the suspected designer of a deadly computer "worm" that would allow outside forces access to sophistical and critical government intelligence files. But unfortunately, the only way the crafty agent can get next to the worm's creator, Tom Fuller, is to access the programmer's Orange County home as the new "nanny" to Fuller and his wife Leah's children: toddler Andrew and his two older sisters, Carrie and Molly. This means that Malcolm must once again rely on his sure-fire alter ego, the take-no-prisoners Hattie Mae Pierce, a.k.a. "Big Momma," to bring down the bad guys and prove that a woman's work is never done! But once undercover, the job proves another tough juggling act for Big Momma as "she" must manage the hectic lives of the three Fuller kids, keep up with their myriad of daily activities, and handle the many household chores, all while secretly trying to dig up information on Tom's computer virus.

Again a Martin Lawrence recital in a sequel more amusing than previous film
The film talks about the FBI agent Malcolm Turner(Martin Lawrence)again posing himself,who's known as a southern sweet ¨big momma¨, she is a severely overweight but bright old woman.This time he goes undercover,attempting resolve a case, as a foul-mouthed nanny of a family constituted by an unhappy mother (Emily Procter),three sons and whose father(Mark Moses) is a hacker under investigation and passing information to the enemy.Also all complicates with the relationship between the potbellied grandma babysitter and the familiar group.Meanwhile he has problems with his beautiful pregnant wife(Nia Long).
This sequel expands from original idea but Lawrence and the writers manage to pull it off rather impressively.The jokes are plentiful and is pretty entertaining,the plot doesn't allow for many quiet moments which Lawrence needs to balance out the slapdash.In the former film sporadic laughters are too often mined by scatological and toilet humor but in this movie the gags are more agreeable.It's a farce with the great master of disguise Lawrence when he takes a make up by Greg Cannon is transformed into fat grandma. The story is funny and interesting and the characters are genuine and sympathetic.Film is a Martin Lawrence recital,he makes acrobatics,stooges,tongue twister and pull faces and grimaces.Picture is a vehicle Lawrence ,he's a real show man and authentic farceur.Lawrence like his partner Eddie Murphy has plenty of experience with women costumes and various roles.Film gets a nice cinematography by Mark Irwin and atmospheric score by George S Clinton.The motion picture is rightly directed by John Whitesell.If you like Lawrence's crazy acting ,you'll enjoy this one.
