Wonderful performance by Frank Langella, clever movie plot. Cute ending, down plays the seriousness of Alzheimers or senile dementia, but a good evening out that doesn't insult your intelligence.

I think this is a great movie - touching, funny, makes you think about relationships and robot policy. The cinematography is beautiful.
I didn't expect to cry so much because I didn't expect part of the ending - I don't want to ruin it for you - but I think it will hit a little too close to home for some people. I just bawled and bawled at the ending.
I also think James Marsden is adorable and talented and I wish he got more leading roles.

The film has a wonderfully understated, straightforward, slightly edgy sense of humor. The nicely developed characters of both Robot and Frank give the film a universal appeal, but the film also has its share of subtle observations about aging, memory, family, and technology. Frank Langella's performance is superb. Peter Sarsgaard's robot is both very human and very empty at the same time ("I told you, Frank, I'm not a person.") Exactly the kind of high-quality flick that I really wish we could see more of nowadays.

This movie was superbly acted. Liked the cameo from the dad from Suburgatory. Hated the little geek boy philanthopist. I guess he did his job. A very enjoyable evening at the movies.

After so many movies in the theaters this days that seem to have lots of action and noise and very little plot, this one is a delightful change of pace. For days afterwards, I still savor the craftsmanship of the movie and the acting.
