There's an intrinsic emotional pull to this earnest tale of parents in search of a child.

Although highly derivative of ET, WarGames and others, this science-fiction drama is still a charming, lightweight diversion.

For moviegoers with sky-high imaginations and mushy hearts, D.A.R.Y.L. satisfies like a summertime chocolate-chip ice-cream cone.

To be sure, we`re not talking about a bad movie, just one that could have been so much better.

A very sweet, very good-natured, very silly film.

Younger children should find D.A.R.Y.L. fairly entertaining, but this is barely tolerable for anyone else.

A filming-by-numbers mix of small-town nostalgia, soapy family drama and high-tech sfx, this Dreary Android Runaway Yarn Lags way behind the Spielberg thoroughbreds it tries so hard to ape.

The main problem with this thing (besides the direction and the writing and, oh what the heck, the special effects, the acting, and the score). . .

If there is a subtext to ''D.A.R.Y.L.,'' and I'm not entirely sure there is, it's that one should always be kind to a computer, because a computer might be somebody's brother.
