Back in the `70s, little Dickie Roberts could do no wrong. The beloved child star of the hugely popular TV sitcom "The Glimmer Gang" was adored by millions of viewers who were captivated by his quirky charm . . . and then he turned six. Suddenly the ratings slipped, his show was cancelled and the Dickie Roberts phenomenon ended for everyone -- except for Dickie Roberts. Desperate to rise from the obscurity he plunged into after puberty, Dickie (David Spade), now a 35-year-old parking valet, is willing to do anything -- from celebrity boxing matches to cosmetic surgery -- in order to get his career back on track.
Convinced his star will rise again if only he can ace an audition for
director Rob Reiner (portraying himself), Dickie is stunned when Reiner
explains to him that because of his former life in the spotlight, he missed
out on his childhood, and now isn't "normal" enough for the part. Can someone
who has missed out on a normal upbringing simply "reboot" himself like
a human computer? Dickie Roberts is about to find out, once he puts his
plan -- "operation redo childhood" -- into full swing.
Release Date: September 5, 2003
