Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star

Dickie Roberts used to be the lead star of the television show "The Glimmer Gang" when he was 6 years old. The show got cancelled, and now he's a valet. After hearing about Rob Reiner's new film, he auditions for the part, but Rob won't give it to him, since he hasn't had a proper childhood.

So, Dickie puts an advert in the paper, and The Finney's offer to let him stay for a while and go through Operation "Re-Do Childhood".

Mistakes

In the scene when Sally is about to audition, another little girl goes before her. When the little girl finishes, there is a shot of her face with her hands on her head. In the shot from behind, we see her put her hands down, but when we see the shot from the front, she is putting her hands down again.

Trivia
