Bicentennial Man is sometimes sweet, but it's also a phenomenal waste of talent, and a continuation of a Williams' trip down the wrong road.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
December 2, 2002
The film swiftly settles into an unevenly paced, episodic structure, unsure whether it's a family saga, a sci-fi drama or a children's comedy.

Columbus lays on the sentimentality thickly, sometimes letting it get in the way of the storytelling. The longer the movie continues, the more overt he becomes in his emotional pandering.
October 15, 2002
Virtually every emotion, motivation, idea, character and plot point in the movie is flat and perfunctory -- except for those that carry the invisible subtitle, 'Cry, dammit!'
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

You long for [Williams] to break the metal mold, if only for a minute, to remind you that you are watching the best improvisational comedian of this millennium.

April 3, 2002
Becomes a somber, sentimental and rather profound romantic fantasy that is more true to the spirit of the Golden Age of science-fiction writing than possibly any other movie of the '90s.

Best left on the shelf to collect dust.

March 5, 2002
A shiny houehold robot becomes an exemplar of the spiritual practice of kindness in this film that must be taken to heart.
April 17, 2001
The worst kind of movie -- one with no direction, no identity, and above all no heart.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
March 14, 2001
Robin Williams cae en el tipo de personaje que ha venido interpretando hasta el cansancio: el del hombre bueno que es todo emociones y que es capaz de llorar amargamente
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

[Robin William's] most grandiose holiday greeting yet.

Bicentennial Man's few simple pleasures can't make up for its shallow philosophizing.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10
January 1, 2000
By relegating the story to a disappointing level of superficiality and never attempting to venture more than skin-deep into some intriguing themes, Bicentennial Man comes across like recycled, diluted Star Trek.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

A cornball drone of greeting-card sentiment.

Part of the deep appeal of this film is its undercurrent of yearning beneath surface ironies.

Is it incest or insurrection?

This movie gives families a good opportunity to talk about what makes us human.
