Jordan Sanders (Regina Hall), a take-no-prisoners tech mogul, wakes up one morning in the body of her 13-year-old self (Marsai Martin) right before a do-or-die presentation. Her beleaguered assistant April (Issa Rae) is the only one in on the secret that her daily tormentor is now trapped in an awkward tween body, just as everything is on the line.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: A disappointingly uneven but overall agreeable spin on a familiar formula, Little benefits from a big heart -- and a story that makes good use of its talented, well-matched cast.

What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Little is like a flipped take on Big, with an adult being transformed back into a child to (in theory) help her learn some life lessons. After she's injured by a bully, 13-year-old Jordan (Marsai Martin) twists her parents' words of encouragement to understand that when she's an adult/boss, then she can be the bully. Unfortunately, that's likely the message that kids will take from the film, as well as the fact that adult CEO Jordan's (Regina Hall) meanness yields results: success, a lavish lifestyle, and submissive behavior from underlings. Meanwhile, the movie plays for laughs the shock of seeing a young teen treat people (both adults and other kids) like dirt, try to drink, and make sexual advances toward adult men (including her teacher). That said, some of the iffy stuff is written to go over kids' heads. Profanity is common but mild ("damn," "crap," "hell"), with stronger language only implied; sexual innuendo is frequent but subtle; and alcohol and drug references are ever present, but kids may only notice adults drinking wine socially. And Jordan doesn't really experience any big consequences for her behavior, which is likely why the film's intended message of staying true to yourself lands with little impact.
