A skinny high school junior and basketball prodigy from Venice, California burdened with early life tragedy (callous foster care) and Obsessive-Compulsive disorder, Sticky manages to surpass his limits whenever he has a ball in his hands.
Though it's been some twenty years since they have spoken with one another, two estranged soul-singing legends agree to participate in a reunion performance at the Apollo Theater to honor their recently deceased band leader.
The original announced release date was 14 March 2003. After a disastrous test screening in which half of the audience walked out, it was then pushed back to 11 July 2003. It was pushed back again to 24 October. After a very troubled production, Sony has pulled this film from their theatrical schedule entirely, suggesting that it might go direct to video or maybe even direct to the Internet via Sony's new Video on Demand service.

Lil Pimp is the story of a little boy who becomes a pimp. The animation and voice acting were perfect for this type of film.
I laughed out loud for the first 20 minutes or so of this movie; mostly at the concept. After that, the joke wore thin. As a 15-20 minute animated short, Lil Pimp would have been a classic. Instead, this movie consists entirely of one joke that lasts far too long.
Weathers, voiced by Ludicrous, does have several crude and funny one-liners. Unfortunately, that is all the boy's pet rat is good for as he contributes nothing else to the story. Eventually, I grew as bored with his remarks as I did the rest of this movie.
I am a big fan of South Park, and other animation aimed at adults. I also play several online pimp games, so I am partial to stories about pimps. The transition from little boy to lil pimp was brilliant; but after that, both the story and dialog became redundant and predictable.
I give this movie a five. It is worth watching for the great concept and voice acting. Just do not expect much else or you will be quite disappointed.
