Storyline

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 <billyc@erols.com>

Trivia

The phony license plate on the black Lincoln the villains drive is found to be registered under the name DiMucci. This is most likely a nod to Dion DiMucci who originally sang The Wanderer, which Ray Sharkey sings in one scene. See more »

Goofs

Numerous times when Nick is protecting Devon from the gangsters in his biker outfit, his rear end can be briefly shown when he falls or bends down. When Devon and Nick land and hide in the boat, after the gangsters leave, they emerge and mere seconds before the shot changes to Nick sitting in front of the boat, his rear end is visibly shown (to which Devon appears to be glancing at).

Burt Reynolds in decadence...
18 June 2001 | by See all my reviews

Burt Reynolds has shown a subtle comic flair in films like "Sharky's Machine" and "Shamus" (or even in "Stick"), but his work here, in a broader kind of comedy, is joyless. The kid does show some spirit, but as a "buddy" team these two rarely click. The film was probably supposed, among other things, to satirize the most familiar cop-movie cliches, but it's one big cliche itself, and has a rather erratic tone. (*1/2)
