Summary
Dickie Roberts is a former child actor who appeared on a hit television show. Now in his thirties, he can only find work as a parking valet and spends his free time with other formal child stars. Wanting to make a comeback, he manages to get an audition with director Rob Reiner. When the role requires him to be normal, he decides to hire a normal family for $20,000 in order to "research" the childhood he missed out on
