Great classic movie about a robot who comes to life. The full of heartfelt moments and action scenes. There is brown face and cursing in it but that's the 80s baby! Movies were different back then. Ben is my favorite character outside Johnny, but as unfortunate the as the insensitivity is, we can't erase the past. Just be aware of that and you'll have good time.

I watched this movie with my children many years ago and i enjoyed it as much as they or more!! I even purchased it for personal viewing at home. I still have it, but folks, it's a VHS tape, and the tape itself is old and has spots where it drags. So i am purchasing it again in modern form because I can't wait to share it with my grandchildren!!!

It is a darling movie. Yes, there is a little bit of sharing, but, nothing compared to the vulgarity that comes across the airways these days! If you can over look a few bad words, then you will be able to enjoy the sign of the times and a great movie. Great acting by Alli Sheedy too!
