Basic with nothing to brag about.
I watched this movie a million times when I was a kid. Johnny 5 is funny and his humor works with the rest of the cast. They do a good job slowly evolving his personality as he learned more. When he takes on the other robots you can see how different he has become. It's a good story that stands the test of time, minus the music.
Great classic. Ahead of its time.
Great film! Really entertaining. I loved every second of it.
A good Sci-Fi film that has a certain level of charm.
This light-hearted comedy still holds up today. I found myself chuckling at the one liners and still cheering the robot on years later
I certainly liked it at the time that I watched it. I was 16 years old
While not as emotionally deep as films like ET or The Iron Giant, Short Circuit is a likable and funny film with the charismatic Johnny-5 to pull us through.
I love this movie. There's no other way to express my feelings for it. I've watched it dozens of times and every time it's a joy. Admittedly some of that is probably from nostalgia and having grown up with it, but I think even someone unfamiliar with the film would enjoy it to at least some degree. The jokes are corny and fun, yeah, but they have a lot of heart. Give it a shot! They sure don't make them like they used to.
very funny show with probably best robot we ever see on the big screen Johny Five is real star of this movie
