Review:

LITTLE MAN is a crude comedy about a midget thief, Calvin, who, with his goofy partner, Percy, steals a diamond but ditches it in Vanessa’s purse. Vanessa’s husband, Darryl, desperately wants to have a child, so Calvin follows them and poses as an abandoned baby to get back the diamond. Meanwhile, Calvin’s partner Percy deals with a gangster who Calvin and Percy to steal the diamond to pay off debts they owe him. As Calvin causes trouble in Vanessa and Darryl’s household, including sleeping with Vanessa, the gangsters think Darryl is also Calvin’s partner. More comic mayhem ensues.

LITTLE MAN is a Grade D comedy that’s poorly written and edited. There are only a few really funny, clean jokes. The rest of the comedy is either stupid or lewd. LITTLE MAN also has some of the goofiest comedy music ever heard. The music is so goofy that it becomes mesmerizing. Many viewers may sit stunned in their sits, saying, “I can’t believe how goofy this music is!” Because the filmmakers take the low road so often, the movie presents a pagan worldview, though there are some light moral elements about the joys of having children.
