When a couple (Shawn Wayans and Kerry Washington) finds what they think is an abandoned baby (Marlon Wayans) on their front porch, the husband, who's very anxious to start a family, thinks that this is their opportunity to become parents by adopting. What he does not realize is that the baby is actually a man of very small stature, who is on the lam after stealing a precious diamond. Also with Tracy Morgan, John Witherspoon, Brittany Daniel and Dave Sheridan. Directed by Keenen Ivory Wayans. [1:30]

A CAVEAT: We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and some of our early standards were not as stringent as they are now. We therefore need to revisit many older reviews, especially those written prior to 1998 or so; please keep this in mind if you're consulting a review from that period. While we plan to revisit and correct older reviews our resources are limited and it is a slow, time-consuming process.




INAPPROPRIATE ADS? We have little control over ads since we belong to ad agencies that serve ads automatically; a standing order should prevent provocative ads, but inappropriate ads do sneak in.
