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 Stephen Currence <>

Geeky Randy's summary
18 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Widely panned spoof of the Hollywood buddy cop movie, but if you were a preadolescence in the 1990s, you may have a soft spot for this one. Admittedly ridiculous plot about an eight-year-old witness (Norman D. Golden II) cutting a deal with the Tampa Police Department to provide them information if he could immediately be a cop… and, for some convenient reason, is partnered up with the short-tempered child-hating Reynolds. Ray Sharkey plays the primary antagonist in his final performance, a big band singing killer with plenty of goofy henchmen in tow. If you're able to look past how unrealistic the movie is, it is ultimately incredibly funny and entertaining; with Norman D. Golden II having the perfect attitude for pulling off a kid with a badge, while Reynolds is able to make good use of his big temper and explosive facial expressions. Originally intended to be a sequel to KINDERGARTEN COP.
