Critics Consensus

A disappointingly uneven but overall agreeable spin on a familiar formula, Little benefits from a big heart -- and a story that makes good use of its talented, well-matched cast.

  • The cheerful action offers several moments of snappy comedy but feels largely forced; the road to the happy ending is long and narrow.

  • "Little" is essentially a one-joke movie, but Martin is so charming as a mini tyrant that it gives the joke legs.

  • As many times as I tried to get onboard with its proposed brand of breezy fun, it kept kicking me off, if only because I found myself running up against the very foundation of its premise.

  • Instead of seeing the world through a child's eyes, little Jordan continues to see it through the filter of big Jordan's psyche. Worse than a disappointment, that's a betrayal of the original premise.

  • It becomes very tiresome very quickly. And, no, the film's central message, that it's important to, like, "be yourself", doesn't help.

  • Like most Hollywood movies that pretend to question the values of the filthy rich, "Little" implicitly endorses them.
