Cynical 40-year-old Willis comes face-to-face with his 8-year-old self (Breslin), who wants to know how he grew up to become such a jerk. It's Disney, so there are Important Lessons to be learned, and dramatic changes in behavior to be witnessed, but Breslin, Willis, and Tomlin as his assistant, make the schmaltz bearable with excellent performances. Wells' sophisticated, funny script helps smooth out Turtletaub's heavy-handed direction.

Disney's The Kid
Star_onStar_onStar_onStar_on 3.0 4.0

Bruce Willis is amazing, and this movie has its funny bpointRuss Duritz is a wealthy L.A. image consultant, but as he gets closer to 40, he's cynical, dogless, chickless, estranged from his father, and he has no memories of his childhood. One night he surprises an intruder, who turns out to be a kid, almost 8 years old. There's something oddly familiar about the chubby kid, whose name is Rusty. The boy's identity sparks a journey into Russ's past that the two of them take, to find the key moment that has defined who Russ is. Two long-suffering women look on with disbelief: Russ's secretary, Janet, and his assistant, the lovely Amy, to whom Rusty takes a shine.

Disney's The Kid was released in the year 2000 with a running time of 104 minutes. Disney's The Kid starring Bruce Willis and Spencer Breslin is about the life of a 40-year old man with the name Russ (Willis) who is rude, cynical, and has no girlfriend or dog. He can’t seem to remember much of his childhood. He’s also not sure why he turned out to be the person he is today. He soon meets a young boy with the name of Rusty (Breslin). Rusty is the young Russ. He comes to Rusty to help Russ figure out what happened in his childhood that made him become the person he is today. Russ eventually figures out what went wrong and fixes the problem. He learns a great lesson and becomes a better person because of it. I really like this movie. It’s funny and kids will love it. I recommend this movie for anyone who enjoys Disney movies.
