Devon Butler is an eight-year old who dreams of being a cop. He watches police TV shows, knows police procedures, and plays cops and robbers with his friend Ray. One day, while snooping around in a warehouse, he witnesses a murder. He goes to the police, who want the information, but won't get it until they make Devon a cop. The police then team him with veteran cop (and child hater) Nick McKenna, and the two team up in comic series of events to find the killer. Written by

The film came under fire from the media and parenting groups over the scene where Norman Golden II is dunked headfirst into the toilet and flushed by two bullies. Many thought the scene was in poor taste given Golden's African/American heritage. Burt Reynolds, the film's star, was quizzed over the scene and its apparent controversy. Reynolds said unlike his other films, where he was involved as a producer or director, he was simply the hired hand on this film and had no control over the script. See more
