    Russ Duritz (Bruce Willis) is a successful, but not so happy image consultant. Something might change for him when his 8-year-old self visits himself. That means that Russ gets to see what he was like when he was 8, but what could this lead to? I've always thought that Bruce Willis was a great actor in all of his movies, especially when it comes to the action ones such as the Die Hard series. I don't know what kind of movie most people would put "The Kid" in, but I thought it was a mix between comedy and drama. Bruce Willis proved in "The Kid" that he can be just as great of a comedy actor as he can in action ("Die Hard") or any other kind of film such as "Mercury Rising" and "The Sixth Sense." There were several parts such as when Bruce Willis had a nervous breakdown, that had me laughing out of control. Not only is "The Kid" a hilarious movie, it also has a sort of deeper meaning to it that I'll let you find out for yourself. I know in ways I wish I could see a younger version of myself and learn more about the ups and downs of my past that I don't remember. If you've got any kid left in you or if you just want to see a great movie, do yourself a favor and purchase "The Kid." NOTE: That was my Amazon review from the year 2001. One of those handful of Disney movies you've never heard of, that isn't a cartoon, but is awesome.

    Positives: Bruce Willis plays a pretty amazing role. The entire reason this movie can be called semi-sucessful. It has a lot of funny part's and the plot is interesting enough too keep you glued through out the movie. Negatives: The supporting actors were never really that good. Spencer Breslin was a nice touch but at this point he still was not that great of an actor - he was okay, but like most child actors, partially annoying. The movie's ending was touching but also has some missing strings. There's parts that are simply left unexplained and may have you wanting some answers. Overall the movie is a typical Diseny Film with an expected cast and ending. The unexpected is the twist in the storylines that keep it interesting. It's funny, interesting, and worth watching. If your a kid - probably worth having but it's not the next diseny classic.

    Ok, so we've seen this general idea before, but this movie still hits the mark with a well-executed variation of this theme. Bruce Willis deserves credit for his versatility in this big-hearted family film. This is one of the more underrated films out there, so I say put it near the top of your queue of family films (for older kids and adults) to rent.
