Fate brings a childless couple a bundle of joy -- who happens to have a criminal record -- in this comedy directed by Keenen Ivory Wayans. Calvin Simms (Marlon Wayans) is a master criminal who with the help of his friend and sidekick, Percy (Tracy Morgan), plans a daring robbery of a museum where one of the world's largest diamonds is on display. One of reasons Calvin is able to get inside secure areas is his size -- Calvin is dwarf who stands less than two feet tall, and can slip in unnoticed where more conventionally sized people would not. While Calvin is able to get the diamond,… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's a concept, not a movie."
‑ JM Tyree, Time Out
"The sizable laughs in Little Man make it better than just about anyone expected."
‑ Julie Hinds, Detroit Free Press
"It plays like nothing so much as an extended In Living Color stretched to fill 90 minutes, and it feels as thin as it sounds like it should. By the umpteenth variation of mistaking Calvin for a baby the joke has long, long stopped being funny."
‑ Joshua Starnes,
"A slap-happy misadventure featuring Marlon Wayans as a foul-mouthed midget masquerading as a baby in order to retrieve a pilfered diamond from a childless couple."
‑ Kam Williams,
"Mere words, mere permutations of 26 paltry letters, are an inadequate resource for explaining how fatuous, unfunny, and profoundly un-entertaining it is to watch Marlon Wayans doing a goo-goo-ga fake-baby routine."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"Tedious, snickering jokes about infant breast-feeding and adult-male boob lust? You got 'em, baby."
‑ Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
"There's nothing like a well-placed nod to the classics to help elevate a dumb summer comedy."
‑ Jennie Punter, Globe and Mail
"In spite of the admirable effort that the Wayans brothers went to in digitally transplanting Marlon Wayans head and facial expressions onto the two-foot-six-inch body of a nine-year-old actor, "Little Man" is a bawdy and violent comedy that rankles more t"
‑ Cole Smithey,
"Slathers itself in scatology, crotch-punching, hilarious elder/child abuse, and a brutal ration of unearned sentiment."
‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
"Slow-moving, tasteless and totally devoid of ingenuity or charisma, this is a gross one-joke monstrosity - and that joke wasn't very funny in the first place."
‑ David Edwards, Daily Mirror [UK]
"The Wayanses rely on their usual tired jokes here -- spittakes, white people speaking jive, Marlon grimacing in gastrointestinal distress."
‑ Darel Jevens, Chicago Sun-Times
"If seeing a guy get whacked in the privates doesn't make you laugh the first time, maybe it will the fourth, or the 24th time."
‑ Kevin Crust, Los Angeles Times
"The work of the Wayans brothers, Little Man is even less funny than their last comedy, White Chicks, and enough to get them permanently evicted from the house of mirth."
‑ Philip French, Observer [UK]
"There are some films that are hardly worth the trouble of watching: once you've got the central concept, you can pretty much run the movie in your head."
‑ Paul Arendt,
"The Wayans filmmaking clan strikes with another idiotic compilation of bodily-function gags and lowbrow obnoxiousness masquerading as hip comedy."
‑ Todd Jorgenson, Denton Record Chronicle (TX)
