MARTIN LAWRENCE AS HATTIE MAE “BIG MOMMA” PIERCE IN BIG MOMMA’S HOUSE (2000), BIG MOMMA’S HOUSE 2 (2004), AND BIG MOMMAS: LIKE FATHER, LIKE SON (2011)
Reason for cross-dressing:
FBI agent Malcolm Turner dresses up like a fat woman because he's undercover, investigating a bank robbery. Or maybe it's because the producers realized that Eddie Murphy dicking around in a fat lady suit raked in over $200 million at the box office.
Yeah, there was some serious swagger jacking going on over here. What made matters worse is that this movie came out around the same time as the sequel to The Nutty Professor
movie. Not Martin's proudest moment.
