THE KID A
When you were a kid, what did you want to
be when you grew up? Disney's The Kid reminds
us that being successful doesn't always
mean you are having fun or that you are
getting what you want. Bruce Willis' character,
Russ Duritz, seems to have forgotten just
about everything to do with his childhood
and having fun. There is a lesson here for
many of us.
Duritz is visited by his younger self, Rusty,
played by Spencer Breslin. Russ and Rusty
both come to realise that they need to work
out some issues and make some fundamental
changes to their lives before either of
them can be happy.
role of 'The Kid' is the perfect screen
debut for Spencer Breslin. You could tell
that he was having fun and that he loved
what he was doing. Spencer looked so comfortable
and brought so much energy to the screen
that he completely stole the show from Bruce
Willis. He looks like a kid with a big future.
Bruce Willis stars in Disney's latest warm
and sentimental movie The Kid. He plays
Russ Duritz, a successful but unfriendly
image consultant who won't let anyone get
close to him. On the eve of his 40th birthday,
he suddenly meets his eight-year-old self,
Rusty‚ (Spencer Breslin), a chubby kid who,
in turn, is shocked to discover that at
40 he's 'not married, doesn't fly jet planes
and doesn't even have a dog!'
name of this film might be somewhat misleading.
Children will find parts of the film amusing,
but most of it will go over their heads.
Willis plays a character who is inherently
repugnant, but he plays it in such a way
that we start to have some sympathy for
The Kid has too many complex plot twists
at the end but you still come out of the
cinema with a smile on your face and that's
the main thing.
In Disney's new comedy The Kid, Bruce Willis
plays a wealthy and obnoxious image consultant
named Russ Duritz, who magically meets himself
as an eight-year-old child. The concept
is simple: Russ is a bad man who has lost
all youthful innocence and passion. He treats
his employees with contempt and is perfectly
friendless, until one day, his inner child,
Rusty, comes into his life and teaches him
to value pet dogs over material possessions
and marriage over career.
has suppressed his childhood memories so
much that Rusty has to remind him - a lot
- to get him to finally remember even the
slightest event. But when he does remember,
the movie finally takes off. Unfortunately,
this was not until the last twenty minutes.
The Kid, although funny and somewhat clever
in certain moments (especially with Lily
Tomlin in the supporting role of Russ' secretary)
has no interesting twists or fancy plot
developments. This is formulaic feel-good
fare all the way, but it has a certain charm
that makes it worth seeing.
