Spade doesn't look to have the confidence to flourish in such a mainstream film.

Not at all funny David Spade movie.

January 9, 2007
Has nothing of value to offer other than a dizzying number of cameos by former child stars, each of whom is only momentarily amusing as a voyeuristic opportunity to compare the grown-up on screen to the kid ever emblazoned upon our mind's eye.

A wince-inducing comedic atrocity.

Instead of seeing Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star, you could...pierce yourself with sharp objects.

If the filmmakers had resisted the urge to make it so adorable and meaningful, this could have been a terrific comedy.

Dickie Roberts is a lot funnier than it has any right to be... considering it's a David Spade comedy and counts Adam Sandler among its executive producers.

This was a hysterical, shocking, and depressing movie that will have you feeling that you are old.

Quickly pushes aside the satirical promise of its premise in favor of trying to warm our hearts.

Instead, all we get is a pithy mope session where the best the group can do is rag on current celebrities like Brad Pitt. In a scenario so ripe for comedy and pathos, this is the best Spade can come up with?

Child is father to the man in this often funny, but just as often ham-fisted, untrue Hollywood story.

September 25, 2003
Comes off like a Hallmark card parody written by the staffers at Cracked.
September 13, 2003
Not as disposable as we first think, and ultimately watchable once we get past an hour that's only marginally less damaging than a 'Diff'rent Strokes' marathon - but it's not exactly inspired either.

...the sort of B-actor-driven comedic train wreck that David Spade used to dryly mock while doing his 'Hollywood Minute' on Saturday Night Live

At least Dickie Roberts is a good dozen jokes apart from being a one-joke movie. And it's a good thing Spade penned the premise as fiction before Fox tried to pass it off as a reality show.

You sense Spade is scared of what finding too much of himself in Dickie might mean.
September 9, 2003
If you ever wonder what happened to those child stars of the '70s and '80s, Dickie Roberts sheds some light, but it doesn't make you necessarily laugh as hard as it intends to

An opportunity badly blown.
