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, he's nearly caught by the police while making his getaway, and stashes the jewel in a bag carried by a passerby. Eager to recover the diamond from the unwitting accomplice, Calvin and Percy figure out a way to get into his house -- they dress Calvin up as a baby, and leave him on the doorstep of the passerby's home. As it happens, the couple who live there (Shawn Wayans and Kerry Washington) have been wanting to have a baby, and they eagerly take the new arrival under their wing, embracing the joys of parenthood while ignoring some of the toddler's unusual behavior.

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 to just try to give “Little Man” a chance, 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 good performance. He's believable, you like him, and he plays the whole thing very well. 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 (other than it's involved in a very annoying fart / crap joke, as well as a fairly amusing scene in which a group of mothers beat up a guy). 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, this film really isn't for you.

little man is by far the best wayans film ever and one of the most uplifting and hilarious works of american cinema i've seen in years. judging by previews i was suspecting something a little more cliched and i suppose juvenile but the film itself was actually much deeper and in fact somewhat lyrical. it brings to mind the quiet simplicity of jean-pierre melville. the wayans' physical comedy reaches the viewer on many levels and has a certain magical je ne sais quoi about it. by the end of this film you may find yourself emotionally and spiritually drained and finally, surprisingly, touched.
