  1. An extremely broad and sometimes crude comedy.
  2. 63
    I laughed at the Wayanses' movie, and I don't even hate myself for it.
  3. The slapstick is funnier for the nifty CGI, and the script gets in some sly digs at racist cops and multitasking soccer moms.
  4. 33
    It's seldom a good sign when a Rob Schneider cameo elevates a comedy, but Little Man aims so low and fires so often that it can't miss all the time.
  5. 30
    Devoid of verbal wit, instead relying on a relentless stream of Looney Tunes-inspired violence.
  6. 25
    Sexual and toilet humor plumb new depths in Keenen Ivory Wayans' Little Man, which will stink up theaters like several gross of dirty diapers.
  7. Reviewed by: Felix Vasques Jr.
    Little Man is putrid.

    Genius. White Chicks was brilliant but this is even better. Hope there is a sequel.

    Coming from someone who loves to laugh at midgets, this was a blast! I laughed out loud many times and felt better for the rest of the month.

    This is seriously the worst movie I have ever seen. It nearly made me ill.

    Little Man deserves to buried in a hole in the ground and forgotten. It was painfully unfunny and has such horrid slapstick comedy. The Wayan's brothers are really slumming these days and who knows if they'll ever manage to get back to making movies that are funny. Expand

    Not only was it crap... it was incredibly boring. Helped me get to sleep though.

    Irrefutable proof that, like Mel Brooks, the Wayans brothers lost the ability to be funny long ago. The difference being that Mel Brooks actually made quite a few audience-killers before losing it. All the Wayanses have under their belt is Scary Movie. Expand
