Film critic A. O. Scott writing for The New York Times observed: "Mr. Willis stands by while a child swipes a movie out of his open palm . . . Spencer Breslin, Russ's tubby, cute-but-annoying almost-8-year-old self. " CNN correspondent Sherri Sylvester said: "8-year-old Spencer Breslin knows how to deliver a line. Hard to believe that Disney's "The Kid" is his first feature film. " Film critic Kenneth Turan wrote in the Los Angeles Times: "Though Rusty was supposed to be 10 in the original script, the filmmakers made him 8 so they could cast Spencer Breslin in the role, and it is not hard to see why. . . . Breslin is a charming presence, with a variety of woebegone looks and a gift for mimicking his older self. " Shirley Sealy wrote in Film Journal International of Breslin: "He's something else. . . Even an old pro like Bruce Willis sometimes seems totally blown away by the natural comic gifts and spontaneity of his mini co-star. . . a very talented kid. " Entertainment Weekly observed: "children . . . will have fun . . . by all means . . . especially because young Breslin . . . is such a natural, funny, unmannered boy. " The film grossed $110 million, and was a financial success.
