    Dickie Roberts :Former Child Star - 09/05



    From Hollywood.com

    Synopsis: TV child star of the '70s, Dickie Roberts is now 35 and parking cars. Craving to regain the spotlight, he auditions for a role of a "normal" guy, but the director quickly sees he is anything but normal. Desperate to win the part, Dickie hires a family to help him "replay" his childhood and assume the identity of an average, everyday kid. Several folk who are also involved in Dickie's special world include: Sidney, Dickie's longtime friend and agent; Cyndi, his on-again, off-again girlfriend; Peggy, Dickie's real mother; George, Dickie's adopted father figure; and Grace, his adopted mother figure.

    If Hollywood would only learn to stop giving David Spade and Rob Schneider leading roles .

    I'd also add Adam Sandler to that list.

    I saw this movie yesterday. I enjoyed it. Best surprise: a brief appearance by Hal Sparks (star of Queer as Folk, I Love the 70s and I Love the 80s). Biggest shocker, though: Corey Haim got fat!! Blew my mind when I realized it was him.

    Why, oh why, is this movie #1 at the box office? David Spade is NOT funny.

    Corey Haim was in it, though? Cool!

    This is him in 2001, at the premiere of Freddy Got Fingered. Is he larger than this?

    Spade without Farley will never work for me. I do though tend to enjoy some of Rob Schneiders movies (ok one of them, Deuce Bigellow, it was funny)

    one of the 80's Coreys is on Hollywood Squares, former child star week, this week ... I think it might be Feldman though (they showed a clip of it on Jimmy Kimmel last night)

    My wife went to see this last night and actually really enjoyed it. If you were a fan of shows like "The Brady Bunch" and "The Partridge Family" and such, I think you'll enjoy it.

    For example, in the film (and this was in a review so I don't think I'm giving anything away) Spade has a weekly poker game with people like Danny Bonnaducci and Lief Garret.

    But I'll wait for it to come out on tv.

    Yes, much! So much so that I thought he was a butch middle aged woman until they put his name on the screen under him.
