  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Calvin (M. Wayans) is a Little Man, and I do mean little, who has just been released from prison. Deciding to pull one last job with his partner Percy (Morgan), he steals a huge diamond from a jewelry store. With the police hot on his trail, Calvin drops the diamond in the bag of unsuspecting couple Vanessa (Washington) and Darryl (S. Wayans). Percy talks Calvin into posing as a baby and drops him off on the doorstep of the couple, where the pint-sized parolee pulls off some pretty wild tricks in order to get close to the diamond. (Tricia Spears)

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD picture looks good, with well-captured and delivered details, natural fleshtones, and well-saturated colors. Shadow delineation is good, and blacks are adequately deep. Pixelization and edge enhancement can be noticed at times, but neither is very distracting. (Danny Richelieu)
