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.

First and foremost keep the kids away from this movie.
This is the story of Lil' Pimp, a grade schooler who saves not only pimpdom, but the city from the evil clutches of the mayor.
Its the first, and one hopes the last, attempt to make a complete feature film using the Macromedia Flash Animation program. Normally its used for two or three minute clips where its fine but here, as a feature, it doesn't work. Its much too limited and ultimately becomes annoying even on a TV screen. I doubt would have worked on the big screen since its often little more than static pictures with one or two things in motion. The animation is so limited that it makes the cut outs of South Park look like the work of Leonardo Da Vinci. The animators simply don't give us enough to look at. Ultimately the style of animation dooms the film for any kind of success.
Plot wise, first, second and third reports told of how this film was a complete and total disaster; of retakes, of complete rewrites, animators being sacked then cheaper help being brought in to save what many said was beyond saving. I'm happy to report that the film isn't as god awful as the stories made it out to be. The humor is as low as you can go. If you can accept a kid as a pimp and don't mind dirty jokes and situations then you'll at least like this film, assuming the animation style doesn't rot your brain (yes its that bad) Pretty much its no more than an okay film, and its nothing one would or should actually pay to see, but for free on TV with some drunk friends this could be an amusing time killer late on a Saturday night.
