Kids will be bored, the rest of us baffled.

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.

It's one thing to ask an audience to love a mechanical man, but quite another to love a mechanical performance.

The worst kind of movie -- one with no direction, no identity, and above all no heart.
January 1, 2000
A likable movie.

Bicentennial Man's heart may be synthetic, but it beats strongly, nonetheless.
January 1, 2000
This tin man has a heart, but his movie needs a pulse.
January 1, 2000
A male fantasy with artificial intelligence.
January 1, 2000
So coldly calculated it could give you frostbite.
January 1, 2000
Mr. Williams latches onto every cheap laugh he can find.

An underfunded inventor makes enough snide asides about 'relentlessly unfashionable android technology' that you half expect Williams to start speechifying about the merits of cloning.

Bicentennial Man has heart, but lacks bite.
January 1, 2000
It's frequently witless and entirely lacks conviction.
January 1, 2000
Lacks urgency.
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.
January 1, 2000
[Robin William's] most grandiose holiday greeting yet.
January 1, 2000
Part of the deep appeal of this film is its undercurrent of yearning beneath surface ironies.
January 1, 2000
An ambitious tale handled in a dawdling, sentimental way.
