The Kid (2000)

Facing your Childhood...

To be able to see through the eyes of a kid again ... this movie allows us to do that. Remember the dreams you had as a be an astronaut, a movie star, something big and important? And how often these dreams are pushed aside as the practical side of the world takes hold of us. How we are changed due to events beyond our control as we grow up and how we are changed by decisions we make when we are children. We lose focus on what is important and instead run after things that seem important, while we lose ourselve in the process.

The Kid is a smart movie that uses a child version of a 'successful' almost 40 year old Bruce Willis to show him what is important. It is a heartwarming movie that will make you laugh and maybe cry a little. In the end, hopefully it will make you think and reevaluate. Dreams are what makes us unique. And we are never too grown up to revisit those dreams, but if we let them go, we become mere walking husks...zombies if you will. So watch the movie and live a, I take that back, LIVE A LOT!

If you are doing inner child therapy, dont start, until you watch this movie. Probabaly among the best of disney's modern comedies, its ultimately something that is hard not to warm up to. The scenes with Bruce Willis and Spencer Breslin are pure gold. Jon Turtletaub injects something special into this film, which is enhanced by a great score. Unfortunately one feels that the story should have been fleshed out a little more than it was, otherwise it has the makings of a classic favorite. By aloha "amitabah"
