A major sub-plot involves Ben studying to become a US citizen, despite the fact he previously worked at a top-secret US weapons laboratory, an extremely unlikely job for a non-citizen. Also in the first movie he tells Newton he is originally from Bakersfield (California) and that his family is originally from Pittsburgh (Pennsylvania). See more »

I thought this was a very touching movie. Johnny 5 is a very sympathetic character with real human-like qualities. I enjoyed the romantic angle and I could identify with all the characters. I bought this video for my Mother and she loved it. Overall, I think this is a very underrated movie and I think this is an instance where the sequel is better than the original. Remember, it's a fantasy - it's good escapism.
