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!

Ratings and Reviews
Critics Consensus: Critics find The Kid to be too sweet and the movie's message to be annoyingly simplistic.
Very funny and genuinely insightful family movie.
