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 »

The Wayans Brothers once again deliver a laugh out loud comedy. It was a little stupid, (sad to say because I LOVE the Wayans Bros) but it was still funny. Shawn Wayans stars as a husband who wants to start a family. When he hears that his wife is not ready to have a child, Derry (Shawn) gets disappointed. Meanwhile, a baby sized criminal and his partner in crime steal an expenzive diamond, and end up hiding it in Derryl's wife's purse. To retrive his diamon, Calvin (Marlon) disguises himself as a baby and gets delivered at Derryl's doorstep. This seems to be the PERFECT situation for a wanna be father, isn't it? WRONG I LOVED this movie! Kind of dumb, but, hey, who cares?
