MOVIE REVIEW: Little Man 2006
Calvin(Marlon Wayans)is a two foot adult who is recently released from prison. He immediately hooks up with his old partner in crime Percy (Tracy Morgan)to score a priceless diamond from a jewelry store. They nab the jewel but are almost caught by the fuzz in the process. Calvin and Percy ditch the diamond in the purse of Vanessa (Kerry Washington) and must track her down to recover it. In order to gain access to her home, Calvin poses as an infant and is left on Vanessa and her husband Darryl's (Shawn Wayans) doorstep. The sympathetic couple decide to take in the abandoned "infant" for the weekend and allegedly comedic moments ensue. No more spoilers from me y'all.
Oh wow what a turkey of a movie! I can't believe both Chaz Palminteri and Kerry Washington agreed to be in this shit. I can honestly say I did not laugh one time, I think I was more irritated than anything else. I have nothing against the Wayans Brothers, Scary Movie 1 & 2 are funny as all get out (especially #2). I didn't want to enjoy White Chicks but I was pleasantly surprised, it was mildly entertaining. And let me not forget the classic that is Don't Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood.....I constantly quote lines from that flick. The special effects in Little Man are just plain horrific. I suggest you skip the actual film and just watch the heart-warming story in the DVD extras...that was the best part of this fiasco. I would recommend this film for children ages 11-15 and comatose hospital patients.
VERDICT: WOOF! *throwing popcorn at the Wayans heads*
