Why, in the middle of the 1990s, did Sinbad happen? And why did he just as suddenly disappear? We struggle with these questions while discussing First Kid (1996) and Shazaam (1995), two family comedies about sad little white boys who meet a big lovable goofball who unexpectedly turns their lives around.
