Kind of a drag when it resorts to frantic slapstick and tired action-comedy tropes, but modestly engaging during stretches that suggest the...

Entertainment Weekly

Lawrence's gender-bending jokes are played out, and his slapstick is wooden and slow.

A humorless mashup of "White Chicks" and "Glee."

Fresh or not, creatively merited or not, here it comes: the third installment of Martin Lawrence's big, dopey franchise.
