Christian Science Monitor - David Sterritt
The result is fine fantasy fun.
New York Post - Lou Lumenick
It's Willis who delivers the goods in scene after scene, triumphing over a thin script, often bland direction.
60 - Peter Brunette
It's solid, if ultimately uninspired, July entertainment.
Chicago Reader - Lisa Alspector
Vigilant viewers may spend many of the 101 minutes fixating on tiny holes in the plot, but I was busy being moved by the premise and the filmmakers' confidence in the power of their metaphor: a little boy who's disappointed in the man he grew up to be.
Newsweek - David Ansen
But if the endpoint is a homiletic given, the journey itself is more charming, and less sentimental, than you might suspect.

The Kid (2000)

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.
