Meet the Tampa Police Department's newest recruit: He's fearless. He's relentless. He's... eight years old! Director Henry Winkler serves up a hilarious action-packed treat the whole family will love, starring Burt Reynolds and introducing Norman D. Golden II. Young Devon Butler (Golden) is obsessed with being a cop. Whether he's memorizing lingo from Miami Vice or tailing "suspects" on the playground, this kid knows all the moves. And when Devon witnesses a murder, he's eager to share what he knows with the police - for a price. In exchange, Devon demands to be made a cop - complete with badge, handcuffs and cool shades. Saddled with a pint-sized squad car sidekick, hard-boiled detective Nick McKenna (Reynolds) is not happy. But when the crooks come gunning for the boy, Nick and Devon become real partners as they race against time to bring the bad guys to justice. This "arresting" comedy from Imagine Films promises to capture the imaginations and tickle the funny bones of parents and children alike... over and over again!
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
The villains are lame; the stunts are tired, and the dialogue wouldn't work on a network sitcom.

Burt Reynolds is a lot of fun here in his ornery-guy-with-a-soft-heart mode.

Common Sense Says
Slapstick violence in so-so kid-as-cop comedy.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this comedy has quite a bit of slapstick violence and potentialy frightening mobster characters. Bullies take money from smaller children, and kids call each other names, though bad guys always lose in the end. Expect a fair bit of rude/crude language ("ass," "jerk," "idiot") and plenty of unrealistic scenarios in which an 8-year-old character fends for himself.
