Imbecilic comedy about a diminutive jewel thief (Marlon Wayans) who poses as an abandoned baby and is taken in by a childless couple (Shawn Wayans and Kerry Washington), playing on their kindness to retrieve a stolen diamond which wound up in the wife's handbag during a botched heist getaway. What could have been a serviceable farce with a sentimental plug for parenthood is instead a one-joke blunder by director Keenen Ivory Wayans, full of infantile slapstick and crass sight gags that play to diminishing returns. Crude sexual and bathroom humor, an implied bedroom encounter, vulgar gestures, some comic violence and scattered rude expressions. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is L -- limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
