Once, he was on top of the world as a popular child actor on TV. Now, he's Hollywood's punchline about everything wrong with people who were famous as children. All Dickie Roberts wants to do is find that one gig that will restore his honor and everyone's love of him, so after learning that Rob Reiner's making an ambitious new movie destined to sweep the Oscars, Dickie's first in line to audition. He walks out having learned he certainly looks the part but can't act it... yet, owing to his very unusual childhood. To research the role, Dickie embarks on a bizarre scheme to live with a suburban family to see how the average American child lives, having them put him up as their "son". But once his gloves are off, Dickie discovers how great it is to be part of a true family, and whether he gets the part or not, his attempt at method acting will certainly change his life forever.Written by

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 »

This is a great show. One of the funniest I've seen in a long time!
I have always enjoyed David Spade in the movies he has made in the past, but I must admit that my wife and I almost did not rent this do to the fact he played the leading role, and the story line sounded pretty goofy.
I would tell everyone to watch this show, David spade of course has his same humor and the rest of the cast is great. I would have to say in my opinion it is the best movie he has done to date. I plan on watching it over and over again, we just can't stop laughing its so funny.
If anyone is a skeptic like myself out there, go ahead and watch this, you be glad you did!!
