Matthew Broderick is transformed into a quirky
crime-fighting robot who vows to catch the evil Claw (Rupert Everett) before he takes over
the world. Also with Dabney Coleman, Andy Dick, Joely Fisher, Alexander Folk, Michael G.
Hagerty, J.P. Manoux, Cheri Oteri, Michelle Trachtenberg and Fred Williamson. [1:15]
SEX/NUDITY 2 - A few kisses. We see a man in his boxers with his pants at
his ankles (we hear a few women whistling and hooting). A man makes animal noises while
looking at a woman's clothed buttocks, which the camera focuses on twice. We see a
few women wearing cleavage-revealing tops and we briefly see a woman teaching aerobics in
tight, tiny clothing.
VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - Mostly played for laughs: It's implied a man is shot
by a laser; we later see him on the floor and learn that he has died. A car explodes with
a man inside; we later see him in a full body cast, then see him in surgery (nothing
graphic is seen, just a few springs and gadgets being lowered into a sheet). A bowling
ball lands on a man's hand and presumably crushes it; we later see him using a metal
pincher-like prosthesis. A car flips and slides for awhile, then crashes into a billboard
that then falls on top of another car (no one is injured). A robot-man's head falls
off and is thrown into a river and a robot-woman does back flips off a tall building and
is presumably crushed (we see a cloud of smoke rise a few seconds afterwards). A robot-man
shoots fire at people and sets a sign and a stack of papers on fire. A robot-man is shot
at repeatedly but not hit. A rocket ricochets around a building, nearly hitting several
people and knocking one woman out of her chair. Two robot-men fight each other with
various gadgets, fall off a bridge into shopping carts and roll down a street. A man is
electrocuted while wearing a helmet, a man's nose is pinched with a claw, a man is
swung by his feet and then thrown to the ground, a man runs into a rope at neck-level and
falls down, a man is thrown across the floor and knocks a few people down. Some slaps and
several punches. A robot-man runs through a window and breaks windows with his head two
other times. A robot-man's head -- attached to a spring -- crashes through a ceiling,
a robot-man is dragged behind a moving car and two robot-men fighting in a car are hit by
a traffic light and knocked to the ground. A robot-man and a woman dangle from a
helicopter and then fall, managing to land softly in a fountain. We see a shot of a city
exploding and burning and see lots of people running chaotically as a robot-man shoots
fire bombs and chases them. We see a robot foot a few times, and also see a man try to
shove it into a toilet. A dog rips off a man's boxer shorts from underneath his
pants, a spider crawls out of a robot-man's mouth and onto another's arm, a cat
drinks from a coffee mug and belches. A few instances of threatening with guns. Lots of
reckless driving and some car crashes and chases.
PROFANITY 1 - What could have been a mumbled mild obscenity and some mild
name-calling. [profanity glossary]
DISCUSSION TOPICS - Robots, technology, crime-fighting, death, greed.
MESSAGE - Determination and technology can help you catch the bad guys.
