Storyline

After leaving the prison, the dwarf criminal Calvin Sims joins to his moron brother Percy to steal an expensive huge diamond in a jewelry for the mobster Walken. They are chased by the police, and Calvin hides the stone in the purse of the executive Vanessa Edwards, whose husband Darryl Edwards wants to have a baby. Percy convinces Calvin to dress like a baby and be left in front of the Edwards's house to get inside the house and retrieve the diamond. Darryl and Vanessa keep Calvin for the weekend and decide to adopt him, while Walken threatens Darryl to get the stone back. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Very funny movie
27 July 2006 | by stk1975See all my reviews

I believe why a lot of people did not like this movie is because they are not used to black comedy. I know that the story is very simple but it has a lot talent and very funny scenes.

When I read most of the reviews it reminded me of the movie called "MY BIG FAT Greek WEDDING". I was dumfounded to find that most people found it funny. What is so funny about a racist and hypocrite father? I was thinking if the groom was a black man her father would shoot him in a blink of an eye. But most people interpreted otherwise.

So as saying goes: life goes on and Hollywood will survive to make another movie.
