Too light for adults, too mature for kids, Bicentennial Man hits that sweet spot in between of sentimentality in a naive manner. I felt for Andrew every step of the way, every hardship, up until the very end, and while it has fantastic music, direction, acting and good humor, it is not without it's flaws. I feel like Disney executives must have wanted something akin to Les Miserables for robots, hammering the audience with relentless emotion and sadness, kinda like when you put way too much peanut butter on the sandwich, and then you have to put on a lot of jelly to balance it out, but then when you put both pieces of bread together, it gets everywhere, making your hands and clothes sticky and then you think about it for a week. The sandwich is the movie, the peanut butter is the emotion, the jelly is the humor added in to lighten the movie. One moment, you love Sam Neill's character, Sir. Martin, but then, his decisions make you want to throw a very heavy object at your screen. There are some moments of humor that are unnecessary, such as the female robot dancing to Aretha Franklin, which is kinda awkward and slows the plot of the already two hour long movie, and while the movie is almost two and a half hours long, you never get to stay in each part of Andrew's 200 year journey for as long as you'd like, which is a miracle of disaster. However, these inconsistencies and large flaws are completely overshadowed by many great things, including an endearing performance from the always enthusiastic Robin Williams, who does his best to portray a robot on a quest to become a man. The jokes his character makes are genuinely funny, the moments where he faces hardship are undeniably sad, and even in his robot outfit/makeup, you can feel the humanity of his character and his noble struggle. The supporting cast is also really well chosen, with the fantastic Sam Neill playing his character as well as anybody else could, even if the character itself is inconsistent in his actions. Hallie Kate Eisenberg was the rare occasion of a child actor who can stand up to their more experienced and fabled counterparts, and Ebeth Davidtz seamlessly ages the character with maturity and style. And speaking of style, this movie is full of it. Everything is either sleek and shiny or rough and aged, and Chris Colombus is and always will be a visionary, despite how his films turn out in the end. All in all, Bicentennial Man is a treat for those who can deal with it's shortcomings, and is not for the faint of heart.
