Time Out says

Gary Coleman was a child star who waged a personal battle against a growth-repressing illness and the parents who spirited away the fortune he made from the hit TV series Diff'rent Strokes. In this indifferent comedy, however, he mugs gracelessly as the listless son of showbiz folk. LeMat is the kindly kidnapper who teaches him that life (cue retching) is worth living after all. Tell it to Donald Westlake, who must have wept when he saw what they did to one of his novels.
