Little plays like a movie created in a boardroom. It’s as if a group of executives who have been on the Internet twice brainstormed the idea for a movie: People love Big, they love Girls Trip, they love Issa Rae, and they love endless references to memes. But put that all together, and you’ve got an incoherent mess of a movie that is barely held together by brightly colored tape and a charismatic cast.
Directed by Tina Gordon Chism and produced by the writer of Girls Trip, Little has all the elements, and some of the cast members, it needs to replicate the success of the raunchy 2017 comedy hit. But lightning doesn’t strike twice for Little, no matter how much magic it tries to work.
