One night he surprises an intruder (Spencer Breslin), who turns out to be a kid, almost 8 years old. There’s something oddly familiar about the chubby lad, 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(Lily Tomlin), and his assistant, the lovely Amy, to whom Rusty takes a shine. What, and who, is at the end of this journey?
Plot: Powerful businessman Russ Duritz is self-absorbed and immersed in his work. But by the magic of the moon, he meets Rusty, a chubby, charming 8-year-old version of himself who can’t believe he could turn out so badly — with no life and no dog. With Rusty’s help, Russ is able to reconcile the person he used to dream of being with the man he’s actually become.

I have been always wondering “Can one truly explain the meaning of life in less than two hours?” And here I got the answer after watching this movie for 3 times. This is certainly one of the greatest films I’ve ever seen. Disney tries to make the film in an interesting and lovely way so it can appeal to both the kids and the adults. But what lies behind the film by far beyond the comprehension of a normal kid. Here, let’s first look at how other comments put it: `The movie starts by completely neglecting even an attempt at explaining how 8-year-old Rusty shows up on 40-year-old Rusty’s doorstep” But this is not true. Actually the film made a hard work demonstrated how Russ (Willis) –a successful image consultant and a rich jerk was haunted by the hallucination of a flying plane which was actually the same kind of a model given to him by his father as a present. Here Audey Wells present all the viewers a question as a shrimp in the later plot suggested it: you’re having hallucination for a reason and you need to figure out what that reason is.But at that time, the film is not in a hurry to explain the reason. Later on Ross’s hallucination got stronger and he even imagined a boy intruded into his house. Even more the hallucinated boy lead him to an old drome. From there Ross’s dream or more accurately the psychiatric journey of exploring himself began. That exploration filled most of the film till the 8-year-old Rusty disappeared on the same drome (notice only at that time Russ’s clothes changed back to the sleeping pajama). The main part of the film (that’s what I called the exploration) centered on the questions that had puzzled Russ these days: What’s wrong with him? Why he always said somebody call the Ouaaaaaaaaambulance? Why he had a twitch? What happened from being little Rusty and becoming Russ? What will be supposed to do with the relation with Amy? And finally what he will be doing in the later time of his life? The film did an excellent job in explain all these questions. Evenmore it raised another question: Is Russ really a loser? Here Jean Smart said something very inspiring: I mean how many of us grow up to be astronauts or prima ballerina? We just all do the best we can. This film presented the normal theme of midyear crisis in a swift and clever way without lacking of provoking thought.The main character especially Bruce Willis and Jean Smart worked very well to helped achieve visual effect as well as the profound theme.Russ got the answer and know what to do next, what about us?
Not just for kids
`The Kid’ is a sappy but easy to like film that pretends to be a comedy for kids when it really deals with an adult topic that is beyond the comprehension of its target audience. Russ Duritz (Bruce Willis) is days from his 40th birthday. His life is hardly full of mirthful joy. He is a dour, unhappy, impatient grouch who is brilliant at his work and alienates everyone he meets. Suddenly an eight-year-old boy appears, who he realizes is himself as a child, a part of his life that he has effectively blocked from memory. The interaction between him and his former self brings about an understanding of the forces that are affecting his life today and fosters a transformation to a happier Russ.
The story touches on heavy, soul-searching ideas in a very lighthearted way, which makes Audrey Wells’ (`The Truth About Cats and Dogs’, `George of the Jungle’) script innovative and fresh. Its deeper implications are certainly far over the head of Disney age kids, but hit home with their parents. However, there is enough childlike silliness to keep the kids entertained while their parents ponder the true meaning of the film.
After his previous project, the heavy handed `Instinct’, Director John Turteltaub shows amazing adaptive ability in being able to switch to a lighthearted comedy with equal effectiveness. His direction of the actors is terrific, and he is able to create scenes that are appealing to children, but not so juvenile that it puts off the adults. In addition, his 50’s period schoolyard scenes are very accurate as to costumes, props and feel of the period.
Bruce Willis shows his versatility, giving a terrific comedic performance, unafraid to scream and stomp around like a kid to achieve the proper effect. Once again, he displays extraordinary chemistry with a child actor, making it seem more as if they are playing together than acting. Spencer Breslin is cherubic and believable as the kid in his first feature film. Lily Tomlin adds her wry comedy to the mix and is perfect as Russ’s overwrought assistant. Jean Smart also deserves special mention, giving a sensitive performance as the stranger on the plane who becomes Russ’s confidant.
This film has a lot to recommend it. It is entertaining and funny and it has a deeper message ensconced within the childish mischief. I rated it an 8/10. It is an enjoyable film that isn’t just for kids.
