Trivia

Andrew is a NDR-114. This may be a tribute to Stanley Kubrick, who used the number 114 in multiple films (such as A Clockwork Orange (1971) and Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1964)). See more »

Goofs

When Andrew and Portia are playing chess in the park, the chess board is at first very unusually set up as most of Portia's pieces are on the board side closer to Andrew and vice versa. In the next moment, the board has changed completely. See more »

Quotes

Portia: I like you. I even understand you some of the time. But I'm not about to invest my emotions in a machine.

Very entertaining and heart warming movie.
11 December 1999 | by (West Warwick, Rhode Island, USA) – See all my reviews

Chris Columbus has another hit on his hands. Robin Williams gives his usual first rate performance, along with Sam Neil and Embeth Davidtz. They highlight a well cast movie that will pull at your heart strings more than once, in a tale written by Isaac Asimov that brings a lot of human emotion to this science fiction piece.
