USA Today - Unnamed
Almost in spite of itself, Little Man manages to deliver big laughs. It's not enough to make it a consistently funny movie, but this one-trick pony from the Wayans brothers has flashes of humor and sincerity that almost save it from its disastrous ending.

L.A. Weekly - Scott Foundas
There's no question, though, that the Wayanses have dialed down the outrageousness to nearly sub-PG-13 levels.

Chicago Reader - Andrea Gronvall
The slapstick is funnier for the nifty CGI, and the script gets in some sly digs at racist cops and multitasking soccer moms.

Chicago Tribune - Michael Wilmington
I'd be lying if I said I didn't laugh at some of this--though it's not as funny as Laurel and Hardy as toddlers in "Brats." But I wanted to slap myself whenever I did.

Premiere - Unnamed
Little Man only proves that some should just stick to the sketch comedy, and leave the big screen to "Big Daddys" like Adam Sandler who the critics tend to snub, but who know how to make an audience laugh.
