Steven Spielberg presents the silly and quirky family comedy *batteries not included. The story follows the residents of a rundown apartment building that are visited by a pair of alien robots that fix things; meanwhile a land developer works to evict the residents and tear down the building. It's a convoluted plot that makes no sense, and the characters are paper thin. The robots have an interesting look, but they're not fleshed out either (as they come and go for no particular reason). Also, the jokes are rather formulaic and predictable. Unfortunately, *batteries not included is little more than a stereotypical band of misfits fighting an eviction type film with robots thrown in, and it doesn't really work.

I don't really care if it is a little cheesy, I like it.

The cast makes the generic plot work.....the true definition of a feel good movie.

Past some awkward editing and an ET-ripoff shadow, Batteries manages to charm with its honest humor and heartbreaking sincerity. Nothing mind-blowing, but neat effects and plenty of sweetness will get you through it.

It's a joy to see Tandy & Cronyn together but the film itself is slight and silly.

I had always been interested in seeing this, the biggest draw being Jessica Tandy, but I found this quite disappointing, and it ended up being background noise while I read my magazine. I liked the cute little spaceships, but I just found it rather boring as there wasn't enough dialogue.
