Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star Reviews
It's also has a lot of plot holes--such as how did the mom know that Dickie used to play Candy Land with his dad? And if the Finney family doesn't have much money then how can they afford to fix the house when the water bed floods and destroys it? It also doesn't clarify Dickie's money situation and doesn't show him hitting the rock bottom that it could have. Not to mention much of the character depth is paper thin or uneven. Much of the film is completely unbelievable and caddywhompus. And David Spade plays the same pervy character that he always plays so much so that you forget that he's not playing himself.
Films like this are enjoyable still because of their novelty. It's an idea that isn't really tapped into, and it does showcase David Spade's talent decently well.

Great music video of Former Childs during the credits.
While Dickie Roberts has it's really funny moments, some moments are best unsaid, or forgotten.
The Music Video on the dvd, and at the end of the film is hilarious though. I liked that more than most of the film actually.
"Dickie roberts is well intentioned, and harmless fun, but even as hilarious as the story seems, it still felt like it could've, should've been funnier."
