Aiming low for laughs

Review D+

July 14, 2006|By CHRIS KALTENBACH | CHRIS KALTENBACH,SUN MOVIE CRITIC

Little Man must set the record for most kicked-in-the-groin jokes in one movie. I lost count after the first dozen, lost hope after it happened three times in rapid succession to the same guy.

So, yes, the movie relies on stupid humor, on the lowest forms of slapstick, on gags calculated to make audiences gag. But that shouldn't surprise anyone. This is, after all, the work of the Wayans Brothers - stars Marlon and Shawn, director Keenen Ivory, whose last film, White Chicks, didn't exactly avoid low humor.

Little Man (Revolution Studios) Starring Shawn Wayans, Marlon Wayans and Kerry Washington. Directed by Keenen Ivory Wayans. Rated PG-13. Time 90 minutes.
