Storyline

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. Written by Press Release (Wendy Morris PR)

Short Review
12 December 2005 | by (Cleveland, Ohio) – See all my reviews

The Kid & I was much better than I expected it to be. It wasn't great, but it did leave you feeling good at the end.

The performances were good as well. Good humor by Tom Arnold and laugh out loud moments by Val. (Gabby Sanalitro) Let's hope we get to see more of her in the future.

I would suggest seeing this film with your family. It is definitely the type of film that kids can relate to.

Gores also did a fine job, and should be an inspiration to other families that have children with CP.

If you can't catch it at the theater, it's worth renting.
