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 »

Okay, True You Have To Not Only Suspend Belief, But You Have To KILL It, But This Doesn't Deserve A 2.8/10 Rating!
23 May 2007 | by (.: Fiendish Writings in the Dark :.) – See all my reviews

It doesn't rate MUCH higher than that, but Norman D. Golden II is so preciously precocious as to wax reminiscent of Shirley Temple's early performances.

Burt is great here, though his character is quite irascible and curmudgeonly, but he plays those parts very well. This film features some decent action, a story and plot line which is quite cliché, and some good elemental twists, which balance out the many clichés throughout.

It was muddled in that you had to suspend belief to an extreme level in order to embrace the work, but once done, there is a lot of heart and entertainment to be had. I'm not saying this is "great" or even "compelling," but I did derive some level of enjoyment from Norman D. Golden II's performance.

It rates a 5.2/10 from...

the Fiend :.
