I received Little on Blu-ray for this review/feature. Opinions expressed are my own.
The big boss gets a small dose of karma when Little, an inventive new twist on the “body swap” comedy, arrives on Digital June 25 and Blu-ray July 9. The irreverent comedy about the price of success, the power of sisterhood and having a second chance to grow up – and glow up – right stars Regina Hall (Girls Trip), Marsai Martin (“Black-ish”) and Issa Rae (“Insecure”).
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. Regina Hall (Girls Trip, “Black Monday”) and Marsai Martin (Black-ish) 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. Issa Rae (“Insecure,” The Hate You Give) plays Jordan’s long-suffering assistant April. Using heart and humor, LITTLE teaches us to not shy away but to celebrate the greatest and most authentic versions of ourselves.
Filled with laugh-out-loud moments from beginning to end and amusing bonus content, LITTLE makes the perfect movie for a Girls Night In! The film is based on an idea by Marsai Martin, who also serves as an executive producer, alongside Regina Hall, Preston Holmes (Girls Trip, Night School), and Josh Martin. Littleis directed by Tina Gordon (What Men Want, Drumline), produced by Will Packer (Girls Trip, Night School), and also stars Justin Hartley (“This Is Us”, A Bad Moms Christmas).

Run Time: 1 Hour and 48 Minutes
Rating: Rated PG-13 for some suggestive content
It is listed as PG-13 and I let my 10 year old watch with me and it was a great fit for us both. We laughed and enjoyed watching it together. The main character, Jordan, was bullied back in middle school and she vowed to be a strong powerful woman when she grew up…one that would instead do the bullying! Her dreams come true as she is now a successful businesswoman and all her employees are scared of her. After being rude to a young girl that same girl casts a spell on Jordan and thus she wakes up the next day as her awkward 13 year old self again! She now must rely on her assistant to help run her business while she heads off to middle school…again! With plenty of jokes we get to see Jordan “grow up” all over again over the course a few days. Little is one of those fun movies that makes for a PERFECT girls night in!
