Hey guys, gays, and gworls! I’m back at it like a crack addict with a review on the movie produced by a genius little girl called ‘Little’!
Jordan is a take-no-prisoners tech mogul who torments her long-suffering assistant, April, and the rest of her employees on a daily basis. She soon faces an unexpected threat to her personal life and career when she magically transforms into a 13-year-old version of herself right before a do-or-die presentation. Jordan will now need to rely on April more than ever — if April is willing to stop treating Jordan like a 13-year-old child who has an attitude problem.
Based on previews and first impressions I already knew I was going to see the movie because the hilarious Issa Rae, stunning Regina Hall, and the intelligent Marsai Martin were the main characters! #BlackGirlMagic. I was taken aback at first because aside from these three powerhouse actresses, I felt like it would be your average little to big movie, or a “13 Going on 30” except 30 going on 13. I am here to tell you that it is unlike those movies. One thing that makes this movie stand out is that it is for two specific groups of people; my fellow black people and people who feel like outsiders.
As someone who was an outsider as a kid and still feels like one to this day, it got me a little bit emotional. I always grew up thinking that in order to get attention meant that I would have to seek validation and also to change my entire personality just, so I can feel important. That was a big fat lie I told myself. The theme song “Be Yourself” created by Chloe x Halle (Beyoncé’s protégés) embodied the biggest ideal of the movie which is to… be yourself. You don’t have to change for anyone. You’re fine just the way you are! Love yourself and be a hundred percent you and everything that’s meant for you will follow!
As someone who is black, this movie made me even happier! From the auntie jokes to the butt whooping along with a plethora of black innuendos, I must say it was EVERYTHING. This movie took the basic plotline for movies like these and twisted it around to be a black experience, which I LIVE for! Your type of movie or not, if you’re black then you must see it for the culture.
There are so many things about this movie that made it great and honestly, I cannot say more without spoiling it. So, you know what that means? Go out and see it! Not only will you be doing yourself a favor, but you’ll also be supporting black producers, black writers, black casts, black everything! There were like one or two parts that are sort of cringe but not too cringe where it’ll take your focus off the movie. Also, don’t pay attention to some of the reviews because they’re probably just haters that don’t have a sense of humor if we’re being real. I give it a good 8 out of 10!
‘Little’ is out in a theater near you. Remember to be yourself!
