LITTLE the movie is finally in theaters on Friday, April 12th and you must go see it. I was worried that all of the funny might be in the trailer but IT IS NOT! This movie is hilarious start to finish and the underlying message is powerful. I co-hosted a screening for Little and then I also attended a screening with Comcast. Yes, the movie is that good that I have seen it twice.
LITTLE BACK STORY:
Girls Trip’s Regina Hall and Black-ish’s Marsai Martin both star as Jordan Sanders — Hall as the take-no-prisoners tech mogul adult version of Jordan and Martin as the 13-year-old version of her who wakes up in her adult self’s penthouse just before a do-or-die presentation. Insecure’s Issa Rae plays Jordan’s long-suffering assistant April, the only one in on the secret that her daily tormentor is now trapped in an awkward tween body just as everything is on the line. Little is an irreverent new comedy about the price of success, the power of sisterhood and having a second chance to grow up — and glow up — right.
PROOF OF THE BLACK GIRL MAGIC
Marsai Martin is a 14-year-old actress and producer. She is known for her role as Diane Johnson in the ABC comedy series Black-ish. She stars in and produced the 2019 Universal Pictures comedy film Little. MARSAI MARTIN IS THE YOUNGEST EXECUTIVE PRODUCER IN HOLLYWOOD HISTORY.
5 THINGS YOU CAN EXPECT FROM THE MOVIE LITTLE
LAUGHTER: You will laugh out loud, you will laugh during the entire movie. While laughing you will also talk about to the screen because that is just how we do.
YOU WILL SEE YOURSELF: You will see yourself in one or more of the characters. You have been in this situation, you are in this situation now, or you may end up in this situation. The characters are very relate-able and it was refreshing.
YOU WILL BE INSPIRED: The movie is inspiring in a way I didn’t expect. It inspires to speak up, to be seen, to have a voice, to be heard, and a reminder that your talents will make room for you. If there is no seat at the table than build your damn table.
YOU NEED A GOOD GOOD GIRLFRIEND: As people, we are built to lean on one another. To connect with one another. To support one another, and you need someone to call you on your BS. Oh, and you need someone to keep you fly and conversely tell you when you look a hot ass mess. Being a loner is a lonely life.
THERE IS ROOM FOR EVERYONE: My life mantra is what is for me shall not miss me. This means you can’t take something that is for me. My success is not a hindrance to your success. Coke and Pepsi both exist in this world and neither of them is hurting for business. Other peoples success should not be a threat to you. Don’t be a hater, nobody likes a hater.
This movie is PG 13 for a reason, don’t take your 7-year-old. This movie is NOT for her. Bringing a 10-year-old is even pushing it. This is not Diana from Blackish, this is not a kid movie. I’m just saying. LittleCuteLips didn’t NOT and will NOT see this movie until she is a teenager. However, I did grab some swag that both of us could enjoy.
Don’t sleep on this movie, it is hilarious. I want us to WIN so make this a box office hit. When one of us wins, we all win. Make it a Mommy-Daughter thing if they are 13+ or make it a Girl’s Day out. Either way or both GO AND SEE AND SUPPORT THIS MOVIE!
