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.

David Spade is the perfect actor to play this role of a washed-up former child star on the skids. He believes that he's still part of the "in crowd", but he always finds himself on the outside. The side of Spade displaying his quick-witted insults and harsh nature serve him well in this part and he does an excellent job with it.
The storyline is rather ridiculous, as is the case with most movies of this genre, from the SNL crew, but again, it hardly seems to make a difference. The movie is entertaining and lighthearted - not meant to be taken too seriously. I thought it was hilarious. There are some great one-liners, which Spade seems to have built his fame upon.
The supporting actors are also cast perfectly. Highly recommended for fans of this brand of comedy.
