Jimmy the Kid (1982)

Gary Coleman is a lovably funny "KID" like no other in the screenplay based on the best-selling novel by Donald E. Westlake. Gary, who plays Jimmy Lovejoy, becomes the unlikely target for an improbable gang of would-be crooks on a cray, "fool-proof" crime caper. The gang tries to follow the plot of a book about the crooks that "got away with it." However, those crooks in their book did not include such wacky and unlikely characters.
