Electric Dreams is too lightweight and, in the last analysis, inane to take the sinister attributes beyond comic bounds.
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.
Elevated by Giorgio Moroder's score and Bud Cort's vocal performance as an A.I.
Electric Dreams tries to be as up to the minute as the latest rock video. But it looks more like a tired holdover from the ''psychedelic'' 1960s.
Shot by director Steve Barron in the style of a pop promo, Electric Dreams starts brightly but ultimately disintegrates.
The story gets silly from time to time, stretching credibility to the breaking point, but the final result is an old-fashioned love triangle made new by the third party's being electronic.
It all comes together as an escapist package that is exactly what it should be: audience-friendly fun.
Dated of course, being typically 80s, but maintains a certain charm.
Very dated and very silly. Someone may make a good remake one day though. Mainly it survives for nostalgia.
