Kid & I, The
Source: Catholic News Service
Well-intentioned but clumsy buddy comedy about a down-on-his-luck actor (Tom Arnold) who, after a failed suicide attempt, is hired to write and co-star in an action film with a physically challenged teenager (Eric Gores), to be financed by the boy's wealthy father (Joe Mantegna). Despite a heartfelt, life-affirming message and a positive portrayal of disabled persons, director Penelope Spheeris' movie is saddled by inept writing and direction. Some crude language and humor, and brief drug references. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
