The Kid & I (2-Dec-2005)

Director: Penelope Spheeris

Writer: Tom Arnold

Keywords: Comedy

A disabled teenager bites off more than he can chew when his wishes of a Hollywood acting role are answered by his father.

ABSTRACT
Aaron Roman, a well-off teenager stricken with cerebral palsy, harbors dreams of starring in a glitzy Hollywood action film. Father Davis grants his wish in a big way when he casts Aaron alongside washed-up actor Bill Williams despite a lack of acting experience, placing the unlikely pair on a life-altering collision course when a hardened actor looking for a comeback learns to adjust to work alnogside an idealistic young man lacking any semblance of a film resume.
