Harley Jane Kozak,
In the future, surgeons practice their skill on androids designed to imitate patients. Dr. Garrett sees this as pointless since she cares little about fake robotic patients. However, her latest patient Teach 109 changes her mind.
This was actually a pretty good little film, considering that it was the video component of a party game. As I recall, you watched the movie, then drew cards giving you hints. Pretty simple stuff, but the movie had pretty decent production values, and ignited my passion for Asimov when I was a boy. There were a couple decent robot costumes, and a variety of futuristic settings. Nothing grand, but more than capable of setting the mood for the piece. The whole thing was maybe 1/2 hour, but managed to introduce quite a few interesting characters, people and robots. Special effects weren't bad either.
The film "I, Robot" could have learned something from this one. I sure wish my mom hadn't sold it when I went to college.
