Little Man

Rated 1.0

A pint-sized criminal (Marlon Wayans, using special effects to look 3 feet tall) disguises himself as a baby to infiltrate the family of a childless couple (Shawn Wayans and Kerry Washington) and retrieve a stolen diamond. The script by Shawn, Marlon and Keenen Ivory Wayans (who also directed) ranges from simply unfunny to gross and tasteless, and the idea of Marlon as an infant in diapers—with adult teeth, tattoos and mature genitals, no less—seems to be aimed at about the same level of intelligence that swallowed the premise of the brothers’ last movie, White Chicks; i.e., near-total stupidity. The Wayans brothers have shown themselves to be game ones, willing to do anything for a laugh—but if you’re going to do anything, you’d better deliver the laughs, and there are none here.
