Two ex-cons, Harry (Aiello) and Roy (Pantoliano) execute a robbery they think will net them $250k. When they find the safe empty, Roy, decides to kidnap Gary, the eight year old son of their victims. Gary's hypochondriac mother has told the boy he is allergic to everything, keeping the lad from having a pet, going anywhere or doing anything. The boy is even home schooled and therefore has no friends his own age. When frustrated Roy wants to hurt and later kill the boy, Harry protects and then runs off with the kid leaving Roy tied up. Naturally Roy is angry, and being rather psychotic, he comes after Harry for revenge. Meanwhile, Gary has formed a strong attachment to Harry and the two have a wild adventure and wind up hiding out at a motel owned by a former sixties flower child. She falls for Harry and wants to help him escape the law. Then trouble starts from two directions and Harry must make a difficult choice about the future - both his and young Gary's.

Mostly bland family movie
27 June 2010 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

Orion Pictures, the distributor of "Me And The Kid", was suffering from financial woes at the time and barely released this independently-made production. However, had they been able to give this movie a much wider release, I am pretty sure that the movie still wouldn't have been a success. It's a somewhat cheap-looking movie, badly photographed, and while the movie is set on American's east coast they apparently couldn't shoot most of the movie there and instead shot on obvious California locations. Chunks of the movie seem to be missing, probably lost in the editing room when they realized they had a bomb on their hands and were trying frantically to save it. I don't think even kids will find this movie entertaining - despite the set-up, the movie is surprisingly bland for the most part. And there are a few sequences so intense that younger children may be frightened by them. Add the movie's questionable theme - it's okay to run away from home if you don't like how your parents feel about you - and you have a movie not acceptable to parents OR kids.
