In the spectrum of "Mac and Me," and "E.T.," its right there smack dab in the middle with "Batteries Not Included."

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

Youngsters will love this hip spoof on hardware movies.

John Badham's Pinocchio story is sweet, silly and now charmingly old-fashioned.

A movie for kids of all ages, with enough pace and effects to amuse the youngsters and humour plus message to engage adults.

An affable yet forgettable effort...

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.

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.

Amiable enough, but...

Goofy 80's fun. Wanna-be E.T. actually delivers the goods.
