TV child star of the '70s, Dickie Roberts is now 35 and parking cars. Craving to regain the spotlight, he auditions for a role of a normal guy, but the director quickly sees he is anything but normal. Desperate to win the part, Dickie hires a family to help him replay his childhood and assume the identity of an average, everyday kid. Several folk who are also involved in Dickie's special world include: Sidney, Dickie's longtime friend and agent; Cyndi, his on-again, off-again girlfriend; Peggy, Dickie's real mother; George, Dickie's adopted father figure; and Grace, his adopted mother figure.

[two girls spot Leif Garrett and Dickie talking on the sidewalk]
Oh, my God! You're Leif Garrett! I used to have such a crush on you!
Can I have your autograph?
You want my autograph too? Dickie Roberts.
No, I'm fine.
How about if I put it on a $5 bill?
Make it a 20?

At the very end of the credits, David Spade can be heard in voice-over, talking directly to the audience. Among other things, he encourages moviegoers to abandon their trash in their seats, and accuses someone in the audience of farting (then admits it was he). See more »
DRFCS.. i came home rushing with this DRFCS dvd... slip it to my dvd player.. the opening scene it was kinda fun... for a fan of mockumentary or any sort of humour related movies.. i was totally pleased... but up till the part where DR starts to live with his adopted family... then the 2 towers start to crumble down... this section of the movie which i truly believe that causes the movie to flunk.. even mr spade was kinda bad.. the dialogue.. they r not funny.. even the music score also it's too disney-ish... the only part that i did enjoy was when DR doesn't interract with the family.. nice cameos by leif garrett.. brendan fraser.. emmanuel lewis.. not forgetting rob reiner...if only the story was centered on these people then the movie could've been saved..(sigh)....then again the part that really gets a thumb up frm me would be.. as i said earlier... the starting of the movie... sad to say "A Mighty Wind" by christopher guest is still one of the best movie for now... by far.... nuff said.
