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 police hear Devon's information even after the phone line is yanked out in the warehouse. See more »
Leaving him alone again I see.
Sticking your sweet face in everybody's business again I see.

Though it's tacked on before the credits instead of after, there's an extra scene in which a sickly Chu is still seen laying on the hood of the bad guys' getaway boat still running in the ocean. 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!
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...
