The Kid is a 2000 American comedy-drama fantasy film, directed by Jon Turteltaub and written by Audrey Wells. It stars Bruce Willis and Spencer Breslin, with Emily Mortimer, Lily Tomlin, Chi McBride, and Jean Smart playing smaller roles. Russ Duritz works as an image consultant, but he is impolite to people and has a strained relationship with his father. Russ and his assistant Amy meet Bob Riley, a stadium manager who had promised to set aside 5% of the ticket sales to fund a baseball camp for disadvantaged children, but actually kept the money. So, Russ has them make a video of some children throwing pie at Riley, to get him off the hook. Amy feels that the video is unethical, and Russ throws the tape away at first, but he secretly retrieves it.
