So I’ve already seen the third film in this series, Still Not Quite Human, but I haven’t seen the first one. So… I guess I’m watching this backwards. Unfortunately, that means I’ll probably end up watching ANOTHER one of these things at some point in my life. Dammit.
There’s a scientist who designed a robot that he treats as his son, and he’s just graduated high school! Is ready to go on to college by himself? His “dad” doesn’t think so, and has him covertly followed around campus while he gets into wacky robot hijinks. Also, there’s a lady robot made by a lady scientist, who more or less dies at the end of the film.
It’s like somebody tried to make a kid-friendly Disney version of that one episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation where Data makes a daughter, then added in a sprinkle of Animal House. It’s not even as good as that sounds. Man, that was a really good episode of TNG, really good science fiction story to that one. Damn. DAMN. Yeah. I like Star Trek.
