There's more.
"How do you drown a midget? Spit on him."
His jokes about midget sexual positions, however, are too vulgar to...

Betsey, Bacon Delafield fertile ground for film setting for

The slam-bang surprise ending helps, but the story until that point limps along with stabs at cheap sentimentality and bad jokes that barely make it worthwhile.
Based on the novel by Eric Garcia, the plot centers on Roy (Cage), a...

Spade film leans on easy jokes, fails to reach maturity

Kevin Crowe September 11, 2003
"Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star" details the life of a child who experienced a few years of success in his youth as his messy hair, crooked smile and quirky interjections endeared him to television audiences across the country. Poor ratings and a lack...
