The scenes with Calvin were filmed twice: once with dwarf actor Linden Porco together with the other actors, and once with Marlon Wayans alone wearing a green bodysuit against a green screen. In post-production, Porco's head was replaced with Marlon's. Porco's body was painted brown in order to match Marlon's face. See more »

I've now just realised that by watching this film I have lost valuable precious moments of my life I will never get back. Thsi film isn't just poor its dire. It reminded me of every stereotypical black sitcom ever made.
I regret watching this film.
Flixmedia reckons its a race issue, apparently "White" people don't like it because it doesn't have white actors. Mate, I think you'll find the reason why no one liked this was because watching paint dry is far more entertaining and funnier then this pile of drivel.
Please stop making crap films
