Keenen Ivory Wayans
Released:
2006
Rating:
PG-13

Little Man is a hilarious off-color comedy from the Wayans brothers. Calvin (Marlon Wayans) is small of stature but big in attitude. Newly released from prison, he does not wait long before planning his next criminal adventure with his friend and rapper, Percy (Tracy Morgan). Percy needs cash to finance his rap studio and recruits Calvin to help him steal a valuable diamond that is on display at a local museum. Calvin is the perfect size to squeeze through security measure designed with normal sized adults in mind. He easily nabs the diamond but an unlikely suspect foils his escape and he must stash the diamond on a passerby, Vanessa (Kerry Washington), to avoid capture. Not content to let their loot slip away, Percy and Calvin devise a hilarious scheme to get back the diamond. They plan to use Calvin's size to disguise him as a baby and take advantage Vanessa's maternal instincts. Things take a hilarious turn when Vanessa and her husband, Darryl (Shawn Wayans), decide to adopt Calvin and make him a permanent part of their family.
