Number Five is the real star of this energetic film. Sheedy, Guttenberg and company are just supporting players.

The lack of a single malicious bone in this film ensures that its genuinely heartfelt approach never collapses to mere schtick.

Scripters get credit for some terrific dialog that would have been a lot less disarming if not for the winsome robot and Sheedy's affection for it. Guttenberg plays his best goofy self.
