Second half of the picture is the most far-fetched and also the most fun ...March 26, 2009 | Full Review…
A filming-by-numbers mix of small-town nostalgia, soapy family drama and high-tech sfx, this Dreary Android Runaway Yarn Lags way behind the Spielberg thoroughbreds it tries so hard to ape.January 26, 2006 | Full Review…
If there is a subtext to ''D.A.R.Y.L.,'' and I'm not entirely sure there is, it's that one should always be kind to a computer, because a computer might be somebody's brother.May 20, 2003 | Full Review…
What is most astonishing about the child robot D.A.R.Y.L. is not that he can singlehandedly fly a U.S. Army supersonic jet but that he is able to choose between chocolate and vanilla ice cream.October 9, 2019 | Full Review…

Feb 09, 2010Barret Oliver stars as robot boy Daryl (Data Analyzing Robot Youth Lifeform). The film begins with an intense chase through hairpin mountain roads as a helicopter chases after a racing automobile and the driver of the car shoves a young boy out of the door. The child is rescued and is adopted by Joyce (Mary Beth Hurt) and Andy (Michael McKean) Richardson, a well-meaning, childless couple. It is only after the Richardsons have adopted Daryl and find that the child can't stop hitting home runs that they realize their adopted son is, in fact, a robot. The Richardsons decide to take Daryl back home -- home being a top security research facility where scientists Dr. Jeffrey Stewart (Josef Sommer) and Ellen Lamb (Kathryn Walker) have "given birth" to the boy robot. Once at the research facility, the Richardsons realize that government forces are determined to destroy Daryl and anyone who knows about him.Martin D Super Reviewer
Apr 12, 2009This was an enjoyable family film from the 80's. It certainly had some colourful language for a PG film haha. Barret Oliver (from The Neverending Story) was really good in the film, he was a strong child actor and I think he really made this film work.Marcey I Super Reviewer
