Little is Big Fun
Directed by Tina Gordon
Written by Tracy Oliver, Tina Gordon
Holy cow, does the one-two-three punch of Regina Hall, Issa Rae,* and Marsai Martin charm the heck out of this movie. Marsai Martin is particularly good,** channeling a very grown, very mean Regina Hall with uncanny accuracy. Though it slumps a bit in the third act, this movie is fun, funny, and well worth your time.***
The verdict: Recommended
Cost: $1.80 via Redbox
Where watched: at home
Consider also watching:
*A bright spot of 2020 is that this is the year of me catching up with Issa Rae.
**She was entirely new to me, and I’m blown away by her performance. Fingers crossed for a smooth transition from adolescence to adulthood.
***Another thing I liked was that the rest of the cast looked like real people, not body-perfect actors trying to make it in Hollywood.

The delivery of this line. I can’t even. Issa Rae is a comic genius.
