If you dont fall in love with the movie, the video will for sure change your mind! RENT DICKIE ROBERTS TODAY!

This movie shows why David Spade is so cool. His sarcastic put-downs, one-liners, and self-depricating attitude help make this movie funnier than most former SNL members have done. The cameos are a hoot, also, especially the song at the end with all of our fave child stars from the 60's, 70's, & 80's. (Maureen 'Marcia, Marcia, Marcia' MacCormack's line about what she'd like to do to people who refer to her as her TV character is priceless.) Good laughs and some warm moments make 'Dickie Roberts' a must see movie.
