One kid's fantasy. One cop's nightmare.
Meet the Tampa Police Department's newest recruit: He's fearless. He's relentless. He's...eight years old!
Young Devon Butler is obsessed with being a cop. Whether he's memorizing lingo from Miami Vice or tailing "suspects" on the playground, this kid know 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.
