Cunningly fusing father-son sentiment and more blows to the groin per minute than any other movie you'll see this (and possibly any other) year, Little Man aims to win the heart of any man who's ever wished his son was actually a foul-mouthed, jewel-thieving midget. The rubbery face of Marlon Wayans (White Chicks) is digitally transposed onto the body of an actual midget so that Marlon can play Calvin, a bad-tempered thief who's trying to retrieve a humongous diamond from the purse of Vanessa (Kerry Washington, Ray), the buppie wife of Darryl (Shawn Wayans, Scary Movie 2). Darryl doesn't care about his wife's new promotion, he just wants to have a child--and he gets one when Calvin arrives on his doorstep dressed in baby clothes. At which point, the kicks, head-butts, and blunt object trauma to the groin begin. It's beside the point to argue whether or not this is definitively funny; blows to the groin either make you laugh or they don't, and if they do, you know who you are and you should seek this movie out. It will give you all you could possibly ask for, including numerous jokes about bodily functions and breasts. Also featuring John Witherspoon (Friday), Tracy Morgan (Saturday Night Live), Chazz Palminteri (Bullets Over Broadway), and cameos by Molly Shannon (Superstar) and Rob Schneider (Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo). --Bret Fetzer

Product Description

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).

3.0 out of 5 stars Couldve been a little bit better January 5, 2007
Format:DVD
First off, don't watch this thing expecting it to be anywhere near as funny as Scary Movie. It's PG rated, not R, so get it through ya thick skulls that it's a family movie and is not going to have adult only humor.

Little Big Man is about a small guy who is released from prison and the first thing he does is steals a diamond with someone and some things go wrong and the diamond ends up being placed into an innocent womans hand bag. Then to get the diamond back they decide to not just mug her for it, but the little guy has a shave and pretends to be an abandoned baby left on there door step. But the little guys plans to just be in and out with the diamond go wrong and he ends up staying longer then he expected pretending to be a baby.

I kind of liked the idea of it, a midget pretending to be a baby and getting up to things that only a plot like that could deliver. There are some decent gags in the film, but there are also those that didn't work and those that could've been done much better... quite frankly i'd enjoy a nurse on Alex Borsteins knee, but they played it out like she was hideous which I thought didn't work at all. Plus, the fart/poop jokes couldve been done allot better, but there are still some decent gags in the film.

I wouldn't say it's ever going to be a classic comedy, but neither was White Chicks but you can still sit from start to finish and watch it without being bored, unless you're just expecting something huge to happen, but as I said, don't expect huge laughs like they have previously made.

My 6 year old niece watched it with me and laughed at different things to me, she loved it, and wants to watch it again, so it has replay value to some.

Overall: don't go in expecting it to be something huge, its not, its more a family comedy and the only thing I didn't like was the end of it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Little Man full of Little Laughs July 25, 2006
There's nothing wrong with dumb comedies. Nothing at all, but the problem with most dumb comedies is that they're just that: Dumb. There is such a thing as being so stupid it's not funny and Little Man manages to do that quite well. The Wayans brothers have been known to do comedies with utterly ridiculous plots, gross-out and sophmoric humor, and usually not giving a rip with who they make fun of. Ever since the success with Scary Movie they've made quite a name for themselves.

Little Man takes dumb comedy to the height of stupidity. The story is implausible. A comedy isn't so good when the viewer can actually see that it's trying to get some laughs. Little Man is a comedy that tries too hard. The movie is about a two foot six inch tall man named Calvin who robs a jewelry store with is incompetant partner Percy (played by Tracy Morgan). Unfortunately he drops the diamond into the purse of Vanessa Edwards (Kerry Washington). In order to get the diamond back Calvin decides to impersonate a baby and get himself dropped off on the steps of Vanessa's home. Vanessa and her husband Darryl (Shawn Wayans) decide to take the baby in.

To be honest, the movie probably would've been much more fun to watch had it just simply been about the robbers trying to break into the house and steal the diamond back. Instead, like your typical Wayans brother's movie, it opts for the more ridiculous plot. What really surprises me is that no one in the family suspects the baby of being older than he actually is. A baby that talks fluently, swears, and doesn't even look cute just takes the humor out of this movie. The people who take the "baby" in in the first place have got to be some of the most dense people on earth not realize that the baby isn't a baby at all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Little Man January 3, 2010
Format:DVD
A man, who is anxious to be a father, mistakes an extremely short-statured, baby-faced criminal on-the-lam, to be his newly adopted son. Marlon, Shawn, and Keenon Ivory Wayans are at it again in the new comedy, Little Man. I laughed at the Wayanses' movie, it's so funny.

I like the Wayne's brothers, wither you want to admit it or not, they give you a few good laughs in most of their films. So, I figured I give "Little Man" a try, and honestly, it wasn't that bad, I actually had a decent time watching this unlike "White Chicks." Most of the humor in this film revolves around slapstick violence, which is in itself mainly based around the fact that one of the instigators of the violence is tiny. This sounds horrible, I know it does, but it is actually not that bad (barring a few parts).

Through out this film I found few annoying performances. I have no idea what John Witherspoon was on during the filming of this, but I have the feeling it'd put half of viewers to sleep. I realize the character he's playing is supposed to be a bit crazy, but I quite honestly felt like throwing my shoe through the screen whenever he was on it. Kerry Washington also annoyed me at some points, but that was mostly due to her character's lines rather than how she delivered them. Shawn Wayans puts on a decent performance and is believable at times.

The actual plot (a stolen diamond) is pretty much forgotten throughout most of the film. Once Marlon pretends to be the baby, until the very end of the movie, the diamond is pretty much a useless part of the plot. But with this kind of comedy, you know you're not going to get much of a plot-heavy movie anyway, and that should be taken into consideration. Other than that it's a decent film. It's not perfect and it's not bad either. But if you don't like slapstick involving midgets then you can skip it.
