In keeping with his background in television sitcoms, Sam Weisman directs the cameo-filled comedy Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star. Dickie Roberts (David Spade) was a child actor on the hit TV show "The Glimmer Gang" and remains remembered for a particular catch phrase. Now in his thirties, he finds work as a parking valet and spends time with other nominal child stars (enter cameos by Danny Bonaduce, Corey Feldman, and the like). Wanting to make a comeback, he manages to get an audition with director Rob Reiner. When the role requires him to be normal, he decides to hire a normal family in order to relive the childhood he missed out on. He ends up with sleazy salesman George Finney (Craig Bierko) and his loving wife, Grace (Mary McCormack). Dickie shares a room with their two kids: sunny daughter Sally (Jenna Boyd) and impressionable son Sam (Scott Tessa). Former child star Alyssa Milano appears as Dickie's girlfriend, Cyndi.

This movie shows why David Spade is so cool. His sarcastic put-downs, one-liners, and self-depricating attitude help make this movie funnier than most former SNL members have done. The cameos are a hoot, also, especially the song at the end with all of our fave child stars from the 60's, 70's, & 80's. (Maureen 'Marcia, Marcia, Marcia' MacCormack's line about what she'd like to do to people who refer to her as her TV character is priceless.) Good laughs and some warm moments make 'Dickie Roberts' a must see movie.
