In the year 2006, a comedy movie called Little Man was released, starring Shawn Wayans and Marlon Wayans. The movie is directed by Keenen Ivory Wayans and written by Keenen Ivory Wayans, Shawn Wayans, and Marlon Wayans. The movie's storyline focuses on a criminal named Calvin (Marlon Wayans), who gets released from prison and plans to steal a diamond. In the process of stealing the diamond, he disguises himself as a baby and leaves the diamond with Darryl (Shawn Wayans), a hapless man trying to conceive a child with his wife Vanessa (Kerry Washington). When Darryl and Vanessa find the disguised Calvin/Baby in a basket outside their door, they take him in as their own child.

As they take care of the baby, they start to notice that the baby is not what he seems. Their suspicions are confirmed when they realize that the baby is not a real baby but a small man. The problem is that they are unable to prove this to anyone else but themselves, as the rest of the world sees him as a baby.

The film's central plot revolves around the baby's true identity and the diamond's recovery, which Calvin is desperate to get back. The movie follows the hilarious adventures of the couple as they try to hide Calvin from the authorities and his accomplices with whom he has a tense relationship.

Little Man is a comedy movie that offers plenty of laughs. The Wayans brothers are known for their unique brand of humor, and they don't disappoint in this movie. The movie is full of slapstick humor, witty dialogue, and comic relief in many situations.

One of the movie's highlights is the performances of Shawn and Marlon Wayans. Shawn plays Darryl, the naive and gullible husband who falls for Calvin/Baby's ruse. He brings a lot of heart and likability to the role, and his character's misadventures bring plenty of laughs. Marlon plays Calvin, the small man who pretends to be a baby. He is perfectly cast, and his performance is spot on in the film. His facial expressions and physical comedy abilities make this character come alive and add to the film's overall comedic value.

Kerry Washington plays Vanessa, Darryl's wife, who is trying to have a baby. She brings a lot of depth and emotion to the role, coming across as both caring and humorous when necessary. Her performance shows that she is a versatile actor who can fit diverse genres.

The film's director, Keenen Ivory Wayans, has done an excellent job in bringing to life a world where a grown man could pass for a baby. The special effects, makeup, and cinematography all add to the overall charm of the movie.

The soundtrack of the movie is also noteworthy, as it contains a selection of popular songs that fit the film's comedic tone well.

Overall, Little Man is an enjoyable comedy movie that fans of the Wayans brothers' previous work would enjoy. The slapstick humor, clever plotline, and talented actors make this movie worth watching.
