So, recently my close friends and I went to go see the new comedy ‘Little’. It was a good film, and it was kid-friendly so it’s something you can see with family and friends. I laughed all throughout the entire movie, and that’s rare because I find most comedies to be cheesy. I recommend this movie for any ladies seeking a calm girls night. Also if you’re planning to take a preteen sibling or child. I was honestly pleased it was not a cheesy, cliche movie like most comedy films released this year. Although it is considered a remake of the 1980s classic film “Big” starring Tom Hanks, it was still funny. The main characters of “Little” were played by Marsai Martin, Issa Rae, Regina Hall, Justin Harley, and Tone Bell.
“Little” is about Jordan Sanders (Regina Hall), a tech business mogul who is overly aggressively, rude and big-headed. Jordan treats her employees, peers, and even her significant other as they’re worthless. Before she knew it, karma had come along and was magically turned her back into her 13-year-old self (Marsai Martin). Along with the help of her sassy, yet timid assistant April (Issa Rae), Jordan had to relive the social nightmares of being a preteen. The only difference is that she’s a preteen in 2019 where social media effects reality. Throughout the few short days, of living her pre-adolescent diva lifestyle Jordan learned some valuable life lessons that will help her whenever she becomes ”big” again.
Personally, I give this movie a four-star rating. I would’ve given it a five-star rating if it was not influenced off of a classic, and was original. I feel as almost every other movie, that has been released within the past five years has been some sort of remake. It’s most certainly something I would go see again though. Even whenever it replays on cable television millions of times, I’ll be watching it frequently. One of the main aspects that I found interesting is Marsai Martin ’Little Jordan’ was the producer of this film. And that’s amazing because she’s young compared to other film producers in the industry. Success has no age limit, as you see. So don’t get discouraged about continuing your road of success, because success has no limit on age nor time.
