 Big Momma's House (2000)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
Some are predictable, like when Big Momma takes a karate class and starts beating the teacher--played by Anthony Anderson--to a pulp, but they still work due to the way they're handled.
And Lawrence turns in yet another fine comic performance, with a script that could've used a rewrite but was nowhere near as bad as the crackerjack script he had to work with in "Blue Streak." The talented comic helps keep the movie togehter, with a little assistance from the supporting cast.
The plot is chaotic, sometimes predictable, and becomes more and more implausible by the minute but the comedy works and because of that we're able to excuse the script's shortcomings.

 Big Momma's House   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
Big Momma's House was one of 2000's biggest hits, and three years later, I'm still trying to figure out why, what about the flick made it so special.
The problem is that "Big Momma" is out of town herself, leaving Malcolm to don a dress, a wig, and fat suit to unconvincingly pose as the matriarch.
Aside from an interesting baby delivery (Big Momma is also a certified midwife, putting Malcolm in yet another sticky situation) and a profane church service, there's hardly a single ounce of original humor or even a good joke to be found in the film's entire structure.

 Big Momma's House / * (2000)
“Big Momma’s House” makes a severe error in judgment by assuming that, when slim men dress in drag in comedies, playing overweight women in their twilight years is the compulsory approach.
One of the convict’s potential contacts is his ex-girlfriend, the beautiful Sherry, and Malcolm and his partner are sent to keep an eye on the house of her grandmother, Hallie (also known as Big Momma), hoping that the endangered young woman will show up.
But Big Momma goes on a trip and Sherry calls up to tell her that she’s on her way to the house.

Not one character ever notices that Big Momma isn't around when Lawrence is. That's fucking weak, especially since everything takes place in Big Momma's house and it should seem strange if she's gone for hours at a time.

 Big Momma's House movie review   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
This framework allows Lawrence to engage in a variety of gags (including, of course those related to flatulence and weight), taking advantage of the fact that no one knows that he is really a male impersonating an extremely heavy female.
By far, the latter is the cleverest aspect of the film, and results in hilarity when "Big Momma" kicks a bullying security guard's butt in karate and beats bullying school kids at basketball.
And of course, there are also occasions where "Big Momma" has to perform tasks that clearly isn't Malcolm's forte, like delivering a baby or singing in the church choir.

The houses are from all over North America in a rich variety of styles -- from a tiny New York apartment to a southwestern adobe, a traditional Minnesota farmhouse, and a cottage community in the Pacific Northwest.
These are the hallmarks of a house that has the promise of becoming a cherished home.

The Not So Big House, by Sarah Susanka, brings to light a new way of thinking about what makes a place feel like home--characteristics that many people desire of their homes but haven't known how to verbalize.
The inspiration for The Not So Big House came from a growing awareness that new houses were getting bigger and bigger but with little redeeming design merit.
The problem is that comfort has almost nothing to do with how big a space is. It is attained, rather, by tailoring our houses to fit the way we really live, and to the scale and proportions of our human form.

 Amazon.com: The Big Doll House: Roger Corman Classics (1971): DVD   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
Women-in-prison films were nothing new in 1971, but The Big Doll House had it all--sex, violence, nudity, a sadistic guard, and a sexually frustrated warden--and served it up with an abundance of cheapjack energy and tongue-in-cheek humor.
Where The Big Doll House really succeeds is in its mix of titillation and action, a fast-paced combination that makes it one heck of a fun exploitation movie to watch.
Considering how big a fan he is of these types of movies, it's no wonder that Quentin Tarentino based an entire film around the beautiful Grier, who, I might add, looks absolutely amazing today.
