Movie Reviews

A Strangely Compelling and Funny Story
George Applegate | Los Angeles, CA USA | 06/29/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I saw this movie at the Egyptian in Los Angeles a few months ago. Finally a science fictional movie where they put more thought into the story than the special effects. It's both comical and poignant. Ike is a homemade robot who is troubled by how hopelessly unhappy Charles, his nerdy creator is. Ike, being a robot, has no trouble figuring out how the female mind works, which is something his scientist "father" could never hope to do. He practices on women over the phone, and then in Cyrano fashion arranges for one of them to meet Charles. He gives Charles dating lessons and thus manages to bootstrap his creator into a relationship that he is totally incapable of sustaining. We can relate to Charles' social ineptitude and how he lapses into depression, but what is most moving is the robot's despair. For all his analytical ability, Ike cannot save this one human who means everything to him. The acting is on target and the dialog efficient. The production values are rough, but that makes the movie's wit and clear sense of itself all the more refreshing."
A.I. with real depth and acid wit!

(5 out of 5 stars)

"One of the funniest, and most touching sci-fi movies I have ever seen. On no budget whatsoever, writer-director Tom Sawyer has created wacked-out characters and situations, and some of the most brilliant dialogue in the recent history of American cinema. Has he also touched on the "meaning of life?" This is one robot to be reckoned with. The DVD includes a perceptive commentary with the director and a respected indie producer-fan. And the not-to-be-missed "Leave It to Roll-oh," a 1940 Jam Handy industrial short made for General Motors, of astonishing studipity and misogyny featuring the proto-robot Roll-oh."
A rare find.
George L. Bush | Colorado Springs, CO USA | 05/04/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This movie is original and clever. A computer A.I. that can't do math is so ironic I loved it. The computer is a more successful human than its depressed and brilliant creator. The only reason I did not give this movie a 5 is the computer's voice is hard to understand at times, subtitles would of helped greatly. Production costs were low and it shows. This movie really makes me realize how good of a movie "The Day the Earth Stood Still" is."
