Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son is a 2011 American comedy film directed by John Whitesell and is the third installment in the Big Momma franchise. The movie features Martin Lawrence reprising his role as FBI agent Malcolm Turner and Brandon T. Jackson as his stepson Trent Pierce. Jessica Lucas joins the cast as Haley Robinson, a potential love interest for Trent.

The story revolves around Trent Pierce, a rebellious teenage boy who witnesses a murder and becomes a key witness in the case. His father, Malcolm Turner, is assigned to protect him and his mother from the murderer until the trial. Malcolm decides to disguise himself as Big Momma, an elderly woman, to infiltrate the all-girls school where Trent's potential suspect is hiding. Trent, suspicious of his supposed grandmother, decides to go undercover as an overweight girl to keep an eye on his father and find clues that might lead to the murderer's identity. As they both try to keep a low profile and integrate into the school's activities, funny mishaps and comical moments ensue.

The movie features Lawrence as the stern and witty FBI agent, who takes his job seriously but also has a soft spot for his family.

Jackson brings his energetic and comedic performance as Trent, bringing the teenage angst and humor to the screen. The interactions between the two are believable in their father-son dynamic, with each learning from the other through their undercover experiences.

Lucas' character, Haley, is a standout addition to the cast, as she forms a connection with Trent and eventually helps him crack the case. The supporting cast includes Faizon Love, Portia Doubleday, Emily Rios, and Tony Curran, all of whom play their respective roles well.
