RE: Free Anti-Biden Gun Gift for you



ckie Roberts (Nicholas Schwerin) is a very young actor who shot to fame on a 1970s television sitcom called The Glimmer Gang with his spoonerism catchphrase "This is Nucking Futs!". His career subsequently halted in the years following the show's cancellation, and unable to find another acting gig due to his eccentric habits, a now older Dickie (David Spade) has been reduced to parking cars at a Morton's restaurant and appearing on Celebrity Boxing, where he suffers a humiliating first-round defeat to Emmanuel Lewis. In the public eye and to his girlfriend Cyndi (Alyssa Milano), who apparently leaves him during a roadside incident, Dickie is a washed-up loser.

After talking to his old friend Leif Garrett, Dickie is absolutely convinced that a new Rob Reiner movie in the works titled Mr. Blake's Backyard will be his comeback vehicle. Even after his agent Sidney Wermack (Jon Lovitz) fails to land him an audition, Dickie persists. While on duty at Morton's, he joyrides in a customer's vehicle and drops into an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting where he pesters Tom Arnold to connect him with Reiner. After he is kicked out because he's not an alcoholic, Dickie fakes being drunk and mistakingly wanders into a Lamaze class which Brendan Fraser is taking with his wife. Fraser finds Dickie's entrance to the class hilarious and ridiculous, and agrees to help him out by calling Reiner on his behalf.

Reiner bluntly tells Dickie that the part is not within his abilities because it requires knowing how a regular person lives. Unfortunately, Dickie never had a good life; he grew up in the limelight, and then his emotionally abusive mother Peggy (Doris Roberts) abandoned him once he stopped earning money. Desperate to prove to Reiner that he is right for the part, Dickie manages to sell his raunchy autobiography for $30,000. With the money, he pays a family to "adopt" him for a month so he can properly understand the role.

Once Dickie hires his "family", things get off to a rocky start, as George (Craig Bierko), the bread-winning father, insists that they need the money, despite the rightful reservations of the other family members. Grace (Mary McCormack), the mother, comes to pity their new "son" and gradually provides him with surrogate guidance. Dickie begins to realize a lesson he read in the script for Mr. Blake's Backyard: "Sometimes all of the things you need are in your own backyard". Dickie learns much about himself and life in general, and he begins to act less immature and more as a third parent. He helps the family's son Sam (Scott Terra) secure a date and helps the daughter Sally (Jenna Boyd) join the pep squad. Cyndi returns to him and he even earns the admiration of George, who turns out to be inept on the subject of fidelity.

Sidney lands an audition for Dickie by donating one of his kidneys to Reiner after the director is savagely beaten by a psychotic driver (Sasha Mitchell) whom Dickie provoked while unknowingly driving Reiner's vehicle. Dickie is awarded the part, proving that "In Hollywood, sometimes your dreams can come true...again". After learning that George abandoned his family and ran off with Cyndi, Dickie gives up the part and decides to take George's place so he can be with the family he has come to love as his own. An E! True Hollywood Story story on Dickie, aired not long after, reveals that Dickie has since started his own sitcom starring all of his old friends, as well as his new family (including Grace, whom he has married).

The closing credits are a send-up on Relief albums listed as "To help former child stars" and includes many references to old television sitcoms where Dickie, Leif, their mutual friends, Florence Henderson, Marion Ross, and other former very young stars sing "Child Stars on Your Televisio
