Hired to steal the fabulous Queen Diamond, pint-sized jewel thief Calvin Sims (Marlon Wayans) and his dimwitted partner Percy (Tracy Morgan) stash the stone in Vanessa Edwards' (Kerry Washington, Ray) handbag when their getaway plans go uproariously awry. Discovering Vanessa's husband, Darryl (Shawn Wayans), who's hopelessly obsessed with becoming a father, Calvin trades in his duds for diapers and poses as an abandoned baby. Suffering through a host of hysterical humiliations and outrageous family outings, Calvin desperately tries to retrieve the gem before his cover is blown, and Darryl and Vanessa really cut him down to size. Directed by Keenen Ivory Wayans (White Chicks).

Critics Consensus: Another gimmicky comedy from the Wayans brothers, Little Man comes with the requisite raunchiness, but forgot to bring the laughs.

It's a concept, not a movie.

The Wayanses rely on their usual tired jokes here -- spittakes, white people speaking jive, Marlon...

The sizable laughs in Little Man make it better than just about anyone expected.

There's nothing like a well-placed nod to the classics to help elevate a dumb summer comedy.

Crude, rude one-joke failed comedy.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this film is filled with sexual allusions pushing the PG-13 envelope (visible tongue-kissing, foreplay under covers, references to penis sizes and sperm counts, bouncing breasts, comments about women's bodies). Characters commit frequent, loud acts of violence (hits, falls, collisions, and kicks), resulting in brief bruising and pain inflicted on small children. A character tricks another into having sex with him. The film includes vulgar bodily-function jokes alongside the sex and violence, including a dog urinating on Cal dressed as a baby in a basket, flatulence in a bathtub, spitting up/spraying breast milk, a thunderous bowel movement, and the "baby" rubbing Pops' bedtime cookie on his crotch and bottom to make it stinky.
