"Disney's the Kid" is an incredible movie with a great message and I love it. "Disney's the Kid" is about a very serious image consultant that had a horrible childhood and decides to try to forget the past. An unexpected surprise comes to his house that teaches him important lessons. That unexpected person came from the past and is his eight-year-old self. Both Rus and Rusty try to figure out why eight-year-old Rusty is stuck in the future with his older self. They both go through many obstacles trying to get Rusty back to his original time. I really love the message in this movie. The message is "don't be so hard on yourself." Rus had a very traumatic childhood from being picked on by his weight, to having the guilt from his dad that he killed his mom. He made sure he blocked out any memory of his childhood. He was hard on himself growing up so as an adult, he became anti-social. When eight-year-old Rusty comes and shows him how hard he was on himself; he decides it was time to change. I love how the background was so amazing; they actually had an airplane on set. Lastly, I like how well the actors portray their characters. Bruce Willis plays Rus, and what is really magnificent is that I've never seen Bruce play a role like this as most of his movies are action-type films. He did a great job as well as other actors such as Spencer Breslin who plays eight year old Rusty. What I didn't like is how sometimes the plot was a little hard to follow because of the period of time from past the present to future and then back to present time.

All the characters are so great but my favorite character is Rus. In the beginning, he is an unpleasant person to be around and has no patience for people that don't want to improve themselves. What I really like about this character is that he ends up being so kind and loving after meeting rusty and remembering his childhood.

My favorite scene is when Rusty gets there in the night and Rus makes him sleep outside. Rusty, starts to annoy Rus and starts singing and singing and just won't stop. It is hilarious and it makes me laugh. It is a great scene and had my mom laughing too.

I recommend this movie to ages 8-14 because it has a great message and deserves to be watched with the entire family. I give this movie 5 out of 5 stars because I enjoyed it. You can catch this movie on HDNet Kids Scenes.
