Robin Williams is
a maid-robot that becomes more and more human over his 200-year life, based on an Isaac
Asimov story. Also with Embeth Davidtz, Sam Neill, Oliver Platt, Hallie Kate Eisenberg,
Wendy Crewson, Lindze Letherman, Allan Rich and Scott Waugh. [2:08]
SEX/NUDITY 3 - Some sexual innuendo (in one scene, we hear the end of a
"facts of life" talk with some discussion of sperm's "job") and many
kisses (one is passionate). We see a couple kissing passionately, with the man caressing
the woman's clothed buttocks. An obviously post-coitus couple are seen lying in bed (her
bare arms and shoulders are visible). We see a few women in cleavage-revealing dresses.
VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - Mostly played for laughs. A girl orders a robot to jump
out of a window and he does (he gets scratches and some dirt on his body and also stumbles
and stutters; he's fine later). A robot saws of his finger (he's not in pain; the finger
is eventually reattached). A man flicks a robot's forehead, a boy throws sand at a robot,
a woman slaps at a man's arm and a woman backhands a man in the stomach. It's implied that
a robot is drilling another robot offscreen (we hear the drill and the robot's screams,
but the scene is more comical than dramatic). A robot purposely knocks over and drops
several boxes (we hear the contents break); also, a robot accidentally drops a girl's
glass toy and she briefly yells at him. We see a robot being operated on (there's no
blood, but we see some plastic organs inside his chest). We see a dismembered robot (its
legs and arms are lying next to it) and lots of robot parts: teeth, eyeballs, heads, etc.
In two different scenes, we see three people die peacefully while lying in bed. A man
passes gas loudly.
PROFANITY 4 - A few anatomical references, several scatological references,
several mild obscenities, an insult and a little name-calling. [profanity glossary]
DISCUSSION TOPICS - Robots, aging, death, following orders, freedom, emotions,
falling in love, being "human," immortality and mortality.
MESSAGE - Being human, with all its joys and pains, is far more fulfilling
and meaningful than being immortal.
