Storyline Heading
Jordan Sanders is a take-no-prisoners tech mogul but she wakes up in her adult self's penthouse trapped in an awkward tween body just as everything is on the line.
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy Fantasy - This is a comedy aimed at families with pre- teens and up, targeted especially at females though it has cross-gender appeal. Despite top billing, Regina Hall has the smallest role of the three primary stars, with Marsai Martin and Issa Rae getting the bulk of screen time. While having family appeal, there is some language, drug references, and suggestive humor that could be of concern to some parents.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Above Average Hall and Martin do their considerable best, but Rae's April is the far more interesting character. Rae makes the most of the comedy and the more thoughtful exploration of April's growing confidence in her own voice. In "Little,” the real story is not the mean girl who gets younger but the assistant who grows up.

NY Post Full Review
Average Issa Rae, as Jordan's mistreated assistant (and the only person who knows her secret), segues comfortably from her more low-key show "Insecure” to an oversize comedy, and Marsai Martin is a ham as teen Jordan. I only wish the "Little” laughs were bigger.

Rolling Stone Full Review
Below Average ...a smug do-over...that telegraphs every joke and crushes every nuance. The laughs should come tumbling down. That most of them don't is due not just to Big fatigue but something more cringeworthy. Teachable moments abound and they fall flat on their predictable butts.

Slant Magazine Full Review
Average the film's most amusing and delightful moments are in the interplay between the central characters as they adjust to an abruptly shifting reality. ...as the laughs begin to taper off, the seams in the film's haphazard construction become more apparent.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 51 moviegoers:
I don't believe I've ever seen reviews like this. Moviegoers either loved "Little," or they felt it was just a "good/average" movie (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable). Usually there are many who rate movies "Very Good." Reviews like this make it difficult to predict who will truly enjoy this movie. Fortunately, even if you don't love "Little," chances are you will find it enjoyable enough since even those who didn't rate it high, would still recommend it to friends.
