It's basically a kid's movie, and quite possibly the kids will like it. But they'll have to be fairly young kids.

A film that demands emotional connections with a robot whose voice is one of the most annoying ever produced. Give us Hal, R2-D2 or a barber shop quartet of Daleks any day.

Looking back at it today it's clear that Short Circuit is absolutely awful, and not just because of Ally Sheedy's haircut.

The film has nowhere to go except to give us a predictable initial confrontation between Guttenberg and Sheedy over military weapons.

The human actors are secondary, for the real star of the show is Number 5. He's really pretty charming, though his unusual antics aren't enough to carry a feature-length motion picture.

Short Circuit may prove a summer hit for all the wrong reasons: It aspires to be no more than a recycled remembrance of films past.

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