Scary Movie franchise creators the Wayans brothers continue to give lowbrow entertainment a bad name with this barrel-scraping comedy. A crude and cartoonish film that's even worse than their 2004 effort White Chicks, it adopts one vaguely amusing concept - a diminutive jewel thief masquerading as a baby to retrieve a diamond - and bleeds it dry long before the Home Alone-style finale. Once you've got over the creepy sight of Marlon Wayans's gurning face digitally superimposed on a child's body, there's very little else to enjoy. Unless, of course, you think a dog urinating in someone's mouth or an adult drinking breast milk are the ultimate in wit. Sibling loyalty might justify Shawn Wayans's presence as the wannabe dad who takes in the tiny criminal, but there's no excuse for his screen wife Kerry Washington, who embarrassingly coochy-coos her way through sexually themed scenarios that are frankly grotesque.

Plot Summary

Comedy starring Marlon and Shawn Wayans. Pursued by police following a diamond robbery, diminutive criminal Calvin Simms hides the stolen gem on an unsuspecting couple. Unfortunately for him, the only way to get into the couple's house and retrieve the booty is to masquerade as an abandoned baby.
