Six years after meeting her during an investigation, FBI agent Malcolm Turner is now married to Sherry Pierce and the stepfather of her son Trent, and assumes a desk job to be close to her as they await the arrival of their first child. However, news reaches him that his friend Doug Hudson was killed, while working undercover in Orange County, California. Malcolm learns that Doug was investigating former military intelligence specialist Tom Fuller, who now works for the National Agenda Software corporation, and had discovered he was creating a computer worm that could provide backdoor access to government databases. Discovering that the conducting agents are sending an agent undercover to secure the job of nanny within Tom’s family, Malcolm reprises his role as Sherry’s estranged grandmother Hattie Mae Pierce – known affectionately as Big Momma. While he keeps his eyes on Tom, Malcolm learns that the Fuller family has problems and must conciliate his real job with Big Momma’s, watch over the Fuller family and save their patriarch.
