About the Movie
If you had a chance to meet yourself as an 8-year-old child, would that kid be happy with who you turned out to be? In Russ Duritz's case, the answer is a resounding "no!" In Walt Disney Pictures' live-action comedy, "Disney's The Kid," Bruce Willis stars as Russ Duritz, a successful image consultant whose life is suddenly turned upsdie down when he magically meets Rusty, Russ himself as an 8-year-old kid. Rusty is a sweet, but slightly geeky, awkard little kid who painfully reminds Russ of everything he hated about himself when he was a child - a pudgy, little cry-baby who was the daily victim of the school bullies - an image Russ has worked hard to overcome and consciously forget. Ironically, the kid is also unhappy with who his 40-year-old self has turned out to be. He is not at all impressed by his attractive physique, wealth or seemingly important accomplishments. He can't undertand the concept of Russ' job as an image consultant, or why he has forgotten about their dreams of becoming a pilot. All he knows is that he grows up to be a 40-year-old loser - an adult without a wife or even a dog!

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: By rights The Kid should be dreadful. Surprisingly enough, it often soars to heights of not bad.
Fresh: Bruce Willis deserves full props.
Rotten: Insufferably cloying and sickly sweet for anyone with the least intolerance to 'find the inner child' saccharinity.
Rotten: So eager to please it ends up falling all over itself, The Kid could have used the more evenhanded touch Wells displayed in directing Guinevere.
This is one movie my whole fam loves. We have seen this movie at least 10 times together. It's not at all your typical movie. Is it Drama? Comedy? Kid's flick? It's all three and more. It's suitable for the youngest of children or the oldest adult. --Granted, really young children will probably not understand the movie to the fullest.-- It is funny, witty, and touching. You'll probably not have side-splitting laughs, but will find yourself with a constant chuckle. Leaves you with a great feeling. Lily Tomlin is a natural for her character. Emily Mortimer's eyes do all the talking for her character--bursting with every emotion possible. Highly recommend this film!
