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

Trivia

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

Goofs

When Darryl is looking at the video Pops made with the teddy bear, the angle of the camera/bear would make it seem like it was at shoulder height or higher. When Darryl finds the bear, it is on a chair. That would have given the video a much lower angle. See more »

Quotes

Pops: [after seeing Calvin on the phone and having him at gunpoint] He was using the phone!
Darryl: What is wrong with you, man? You look crazy! You're holding a shotgun, wearing some bright red socks. You look like Fred Sanford on crack!

Little Man
3 August 2006 | by typhillSee all my reviews

I didn't expect this movie to be huge and I didn't expect it to suck either. And I was right, the movie was right in between. It started off funny, then it got hilarious, then it got all serious. The serious part was kind of badly placed but oh well.

The acting. Well obviously you'll know it's stupid because you have what a 40 year old playing a 1 year old? The rest of the cast is pretty bad except the grandpa....I don't know why but I think he did a good job and he was the only good actor in the movie.

The comedy was funny to me. Maybe because I'm only 14 and maybe because I have an immature sense of humor? But I laughed pretty darn hard at times in this movie and a few hard chuckles here and there as well. I liked the comedy in this movie and I wish they would have kept it up through the whole movie.

The movie was alright over all, if I want some laughs I would watch it again, and I would recommend it to my friends but I don't think the older audience would enjoy this movie.
