It doesn't take long for the Martin family to realize Andrew (Williams), who was purchased as a mere "household appliance," is no run-of-the-mill robot! Funny, incredibly lifelike, and possessing an astounding level of creativity, this special machine soon takes on a life of his own -- and eventually begins a centuries-long quest to achieve true humanity! A crowd-pleasing comedy hit -- everyone is sure to love this touchingly entertaining movie treat!

  • Amazing

    This movie is amazing, if one for a second put aside the fact that it is a sci-fi and leave robot alone, that one will realize that this movie is about human relationships, feelings, emotions, hate and love. Almost every single conversation is make sense, if viewer will pay attention to it. For those who expected sci-fi with robots flying and killing each, explosions and fights look for somewhere else!

    As beautiful as it is unknown and under appreciated. It is a film about the future and about robots, yes. However, it's primary topics are humanity and potential. When will we stop pushing back against the tide of evolution and individual potential in all forms, simply because it doesn't fit into the societal constructs we create and thereby makes us uncomfortable. What this film truly spans is the amount of time it takes for a new concept, like the equality of a previously unequal class, to be accepted and embraced. This can be drawn as a parallel to so many other efforts for the same goal. Again, a beautiful film and the best adaptation of and Asimov story to date.

    This is a terrible movie and I feel bad for Robin Williams for being in it. But it was still better than Click with Adam Sandler
  • I have loved this movie and soundtrack since it came out.

    This is one of the few movies and soundtracks that I could actually watch and listen to with my small daughter. It never grows old for me and I really miss Robin Williams.

    An interesting and touching film adaptation of the book “The Positronic Man” written by Isaac Asimov and Robert Silverberg. Fairly true to the book, and starring the wonderful late Robin Williams (RIP). Definitely worth watching.
  • We adults saw when new at theater

    Get your tissues. The over forty adults cried at the theater. This is a keeper. This should be on every ones bucket list. Robin Williams should have been knighted. So many people missed his awesome range as an actor! Can you say "posthumous Oscar and knighthood for Sir Robin Williams." This is a fictional drama with very deep meanings. The kids won't get this.
  • Wonderful movie!

    they really put real effort in the overall message. The two main actors really had great material to work with. Well, make that four. +, this is a great piece of effort by all involved.

    This is one of my favorite movies of all time. It unveils the courage to be true to oneself. It is not just what is on the outside but the inside is really the key to life. To understand the courage believing in yourself to make a difference. I cannot believe the critics snubbed this movie. All the elements for a superb movie is included. Everything from the directing, acting, cinematography , even the music. The music itself is just breathtaking! I will get that in a near future purchase. This movie will have you laughing through tears of joy and sorrow. I would like to read the book and see how it made it to the big screen. I am glad I added this selection to my iTunes library. I'v seen it at least a dozen times. I know it will see it a dozen plus more. It really is a feel good movie that will give the viewer a new found courage to endure what all life has to give. It can be a reminder that life is meant to be cherished, and we are all human, special and unique.
