I'd rate this movie So-So. It had a cute, family-oriented premise but was pretty boring most of the time. A few laughs at times, but generally slow moving.

This is a very touching and funny movie. It is also very original, and the acting is great. Definitely would recommend it. Not for children, though.

Frank Langella and the Robot are the bomb!!
James Marsden and Liv Tyler are just so -- so.
Robots rule - where can I get one?

This movie was a complete surprise to me in a very pleasant sense. Frank, a older man with a shady past begins to lose his mind, so his son brings him a robot programed to be a care-giver and improve his quality of life and cognitive abilities. Frank is very angry about the whole thing...until the robot begins to grow on him. I will not go into what transpires next because what these two get into from this point on in the movie is truly shocking and touching. You will be surprised at where this story goes. It is very original and truly entertaining.

Great message. The next day I read an article about Robots that are being programmed to assist the elderly, do housework, fold laundry etc. Maybe this isn't so far in the future. But the real question is will they also be capable of replacing the emotional component in our relationships? Robots helps bring a family together........and the ending is just plain fun.
