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.

The 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!'

The 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 him.
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.

Russ 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.
