Don't let the robot scare you
This is a story about friendship, family and a robot. It's a buddy caper at it's roots but stops to think every once in a while and never gets too preachy. Frank Langella is amazing with the robot, with snappy dialog they play the Felix/Oscar bit with a twist. With great supporting performances by Susan Sarandon and others, this a great family movie for grown ups.
