Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that the third installment in the Big Momma franchise is less obnoxious than the second, Big Momma's House 2, and considerably tamer in terms of over-the-top, crude jokes. That said, there's still a good bit of sexual innuendo (although it's usually expressed by a teenager's wide-eyed exclamation of "damn!") and language (mostly "ass" and "s--t"). Big Momma is a positive influence on the girls she's in charge of and tries to encourage them to ditch bad boyfriends, eat in a healthy manner, and tell the truth. Still, this isn't exactly a message movie, and most of the comedy is broad and lowbrow.

Sexual Content

Two high-schoolers go on a date, hold hands, and kiss a couple of times. The teen girls at the boarding school have a late-night party where they parade around in short pajamas, trying on clothes and waving lingerie around. In one scene, a girl briefly strips down to her bra and underwear to try on a dress, and she gets as far as unhooking her bra. A guy makes the age-old "something came up" joke and vaguely covers up his crotch area, but it's done so quickly that it's not clear whether he does or doesn't have an erection.


A crime lord shoots an informant twice with a handgun -- once from a distance, the other at close range -- but the camera focuses on a witness and not the killing itself. Gun-carrying goons chase after Malcolm and Trent and hold a couple of people hostage. Only one person is killed. A girl slaps a guy in the face.


Standard fare for a PG-13 comedy, with "ass" and "s--t" being the main offenders. Also, lots and lots of "damn" (or, more precisely, "DAYUM!"), plus "hell" and "oh my God."

Social Behavior

Ultimately the movie has some positive messages about why parents should encourage their kids' talent, why college is important (even if you have a dream career you could pursue right after high school), and about just being yourself on a date, not what you assume the other person wants. But the movie also perpetuates several gender stereotypes about high-school girls -- like that they're all obsessed with their weight, boyfriends, and shopping, and that they all like to prance around in skimpy lingerie in front of each other.


Overt product placements include Mac (particularly the MacBook Pro laptop), Mercedes, and Toyota Sequoia. Duke University gets a big plug as well.
