We gave it a D

With so much crotchcentric action in the Wayans brothers’ new lowest-brow comedy — always a hilarious place to get whomped — you’d think that a striver couple (Shawn Wayans and Kerry Washington) considering parenthood would notice something…odd about the abandoned ”baby” who arrives on their doorstep. What, these folks don’t check the package? In Little Man, Marlon Wayans and a body double play a horny, 30-inch-tall jewel thief and ex-con who poses as a toddler while on the lam. Tedious, snickering jokes about infant breast-feeding and adult-male boob lust? You got ’em, baby.
