Little QuickViews

April 18, 2019 // in QuickView - Micro Reviews by David Deverett

A new version of Big gets a new twist: Little.

 

Being mean to everyone around her, Jordan Sanders (Regina Hall) gets cursed by a little girl who wishes her to be a kid. Changed back into her 14-year-old self, Jordan (Marsai Martin) will have to figure out how to be herself again before problems start to arise.

 

While the idea of a gender-swap and an amazing cast headed by Hall, Issa Rae (Insecure), Martin (Black-ish) and an underused Justin Hartley (Kevin Pierson on This Is Us) are great, its slow pace and flow and bombastic dialogue make it hard to enjoy this new take on a classic story.

 

Office Rating: 3/10
