First Kid predictable but likeable by Barney Basin Gazette Reviewer "First Kid," is the story of a first class brat having his life turned around by a second rate secret service agent. The noise you just heard was that of shuffling secret service, obviously someone wondering if that same principle would work for higher-ups in the white house. The film, rated PG, is a Paramount production in predict- ability. Of course there is nothing wrong with predictability in Pahrump. There is a word in literature for this. This word is foreshad- owing, meaning whatever happens in the last reel was hinted at in the first reels. Hey, you asleep in the back row of Mrs. Evans' literature class, wake up. This bit of knowledge might get you an "'A'" and a report card full of "As" will get you a reward at "Grumpy's Video" store. The idea of a despicable person becoming an object of sympathy and adoration is nothing new to the Walt Disney IDENT'S DAY . ., ., ,,,,,,,,,,,,,, s9285 31X10.50R15 GUARANTEED Hmoe GT QUAt,F, ER T,adn.ln s79,,5 lilIliIU Ill lg.somt5 2g5150m5 On a set of 4 I Big 9 Brand Tires i I I iustpmsentceulelLEXplnls2128197 I Bzrx:oa- @Im 6RAND TREK O lb TG SL ill P225/751115 " v' FREE Rotations Every 5000 Miles I/FREE Lifetime Flat Repairs v' FREE Lifetime Air Pressure Check v' FREE Mounting v' FREE Lifetime Computer Balancing v' FREE Rubber Valve Stems And A FREE Road Hazard Replacement Warranty that can't be beat!

In spite of being able to tell the good guys from the bad guys, even when the bad guys are good guys, and knowing the plot line, it is still all good and fun filled with plenty of laughs. Actually, with this film, the destination is not nearly as much fun as the drive Brock Pierce plays the precocious presidential papoose perfectly. He was so good as a brat that it was surprising the amount of sympathy he could evoke for his character in the second part of the story. Zachary Ty Bryan was equal to the role of Brock's nemesis. His first line established his part, because he had to be disliked in order for Brock to liked, However good the teenage thespians are in this flick the real star is Sinbad as Sammy Simms, secret service. His comedy timing makes his performance a creditable charac- terization. Some of his best scenes are with Robert Guillaume, as his mentor in the service.
