About the Movie
In the 1970's, Dickie Roberts held the keys to success as a child star with a hit TV series. Now the only keys Dickie holds are the ones that start the customer's cars that he parks as a valet attendant for a Hollywood restaurant. Desparate to revive his acting career, Dickie tries to audition for a role in Rob Reiner's new movie but the director doesn't believe Dickie is normal enough to play the part. Determined to get the role, Dickie hires a "typical" family to give him the real-life upbringing he never had. But once Dickie moves in, the family's life becomes anything but normal as Dickie unleashes his wild inner child...and learns in the process some unforgettable lessons about fame, fortune and family values. Co-starring Mary McCormack, Jon Lovitz, Alyssa Milano and many former child stars including Danny Bonaduce, Barry Williams and Leif Garett.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Ouch! Spade goes sweet and gooey.
Rotten: The movie may appeal to fans of Spade's trademark smug and blandly disaffected comic style. And his delivery occasionally fits the material. But too many segments are flat and schlocky.
Rotten: You sense Spade is scared of what finding too much of himself in Dickie might mean.
Rotten: Feels like an amusing Saturday Night Live sketch that overstays its welcome by a good 90 minutes.
