Bill Williams is a down-and-out actor who is unexpectedly hired to write a sequel a la "True Lies," the action film that made him famous more than a decade ago. When Bill learns that his co-star is Aaron Roman, a rich kid with no acting experience, what appeared to be the chance for a major comeback turns into a series of outlandish complications. As the duo embark on a journey of outrageous misadventures, the unlikely pair discover that it takes more courage to face real life challenges than it does fighting bad guys on the big screen. Although Aaron may be inexperienced in acting, his tenacious spirit, unwavering optimism and unconditional friendship turns out to be an important, enduring gift to Bill.

"The man of many talents"
14 October 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Now now now now ,before i begin bare in mind this man MR TOM ARNOLD is one of those people who makes a 1000 films but will be remembered for..

1.being married to Rosanne barr and 2.The great action flick TRUE LIES.

Now type in this film "The kid and i" in to search engines and well the review make the film suck but pay no attention and sit your bum on a seat a watch.

Now i walked in to this film already thinking oh its a film about disabilities we are going to be made to cry and donate money but i was surprised to see this film deals with it with pride ,wit and tasteful humour. Plus look out for the guest stars such as shaq ,arnie and loads others but the stars are without question are ERIC GORES AND MR TOM ARNOLD... The KID and I is one of those films that loses itself in DVD bins but should have been on the big screen ,i give this the big thumbs up...
