This is a lighthearted romantic comedy that has its moments, both humorous and thought-provoking.

Photographically busy, though to no meaningful purpose, mildly amusing at best, the piece finally expires with what could be, but probably isn't, a parody of a feel-good ending.

It's not often that a modern movie has the courage to give us a hero who doesn't seem to be a cross between a disco god and an aerobics instructor, but the von Dohlen character is a nice change.

In the failure of Electric Dreams to blend and balance its ingredients properly, plot elements are lost (the brick), credibility is overtaxed (the lovelorn computer), and what remains is high tech without being high art.

There are all kinds of disassociated, disturbing ideas floating around in the screenplay, none of which survive the filmmakers' decision to play everything for cloying cuteness.
