Trivia

As robot pat malfunctions he sings "Daisy Daisy" this is a tribute to HAL in 2001: A Space Odyssey, as he was unplugged, HAL 9000 sang "Daisy Bell" .

The original reason is that in 1961, the IBM 7094, one of the the earliest and largest mainframe machines developed by IBM, became the first computer to sing, and the tune it warbled was "Daisy Bell." See more »

Disappointing, the writers loosing a chance to make something good.....
22 June 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

As a parent who can enjoy children's animations, this was a disappointment to say the least. I think the writers completely missed an opportunity to make a kids film that could've been endearing, funny, and true to the original TV series. The characters voices were not right, and I think this was mainly because bringing in big name actors to voice was more important than delivering a product- sorry film - to its fans.

The story started quite promising, (a huge smile on my children's face during the opening credits) but very quickly diverted in a direction that just didn't tie in with the whole film. The introduction of a mainstream 'talent' show was unnecessary and didn't work,(in my opinion) and was just far removed from what a child watching would expect - not all children watch British talent shows - and if this was introduced only to make fun of Simon Cowell, then thats just poor writing. All the characters had tiny quirky moments, but it was sporadic throughout, and lost in amongst the poor storyline. Characters such as Ted Glen didn't get much air time, when he could've added a funny slapstick element to it all.

Very disappointed by the this, a completely lost opportunity....
