Short Circuit Reviews

April 2, 2014
The film has nowhere to go except to give us a predictable initial confrontation between Guttenberg and Sheedy over military weapons.

One of the stranger ironies to be found in Hollywood these days is that some of its most resourceful directors use high-tech wizardry and state-of- the-art movie technology to make films that rail against the tyranny of science.

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.

A message film to please all ages.

The movie, which has the clean, well-scrubbed look of an old Disney comedy, is nicely acted by Miss Sheedy, who demonstrates a light-comedy touch not unlike Amy Irving's [and] Mr. Guttenberg.

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