Funny, Intelligent & Clever
6 September 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I haven't seen this film since I was 10 years old it used to play on family channel maybe once or twice it was original, clever and had a good plot throughout the movie.Dr. Jonas Carson (Thicke) has just completed his lifelong dream by creating an android (Underwood) to look like a normal 17 year old boy.

His daughter Becky (Lively) names him Chip, the doctor decides to send him to school to see how he'll interact with other kids his age and learn how to act human. However Carson's former boss Vogel (Bologna) has plans to kidnap the android and turn him into a military machine.

It was funny seeing Chip try to adapt to life as a normal teenager and the comical situations he gets into along the way but also proves himself to be nearly human when rescuing his dad and sister.

Not Quite Human was one of the best Disney movies I had ever seen as a kid and even today after seeing it after so many years it's still enjoyable.
