Little Man DVD Review
The Wayans brothers are back in all their low-brow glory with the new flick, Little Man. Marlon Wayans plays a pint-sized criminal who poses as a baby to steal a diamond in this latest movie and we have the goods on whether it's a hit or a miss!
Little Man - Big Jokes?Little Man is the most recent movie from the Wayans brother movie-making team. The boys have banded together to bring you a slap-stick comedy about a midget-criminal who poses as a baby so he'll be taken in by an unsuspecting couple, after he stashes a stolen diamond in the wife's purse. Calvin (Marlon Wayans) plays up his new role with enthusiasm and is soon snuggling in a crib, being bathed by his new "parents" and playing with the other babies on the playground. As you would expect, the jokes are crude, the dialogue is politically incorrect and then they throw in a few more crude jokes for good measure.
Little Man - When's The Next Scary Movie?The Wayans brothers are most famous for their Scary Movies but unfortunately, Little Man doesn't quite live up to the hilarity of those films. Sure, dressing a grown man up as a baby and throwing him into situations that a grown man would rarely find himself in could be entertaining. But can a movie be held together on poo jokes alone? Not really.
Little Man - DVD FeaturesLittle Man is a flick that took a lot of movie magic to make it happen. On the DVD, you'll get to see exactly how they were able to make Marlon into a pint-sized thief - with the help of CGI. Listen to commentary from the Wayans about their experience filming the movie and check out hilarious deleted scenes!
Little Man - Bottom LineWhile Little Man starts off somewhat funny, but as the plot thickens (or in this case, thins) you really will be tapping your toes and looking at your watch every few minutes. There are a few funny cameos from peeps like Rob Schneider and Molly Shannon, but not even these Saturday Night Live funny folk can save the flick. If you're looking for a Wayans fix, you're better off renting White Chicks or one of their many Scary Movies.
