Andy Kaufman felt that the movie was so bad that he personally apologized for it on Late Night with David Letterman (1982). As a joke, he promised to refund everyone who paid to see it. Letterman responded that if Kaufman wanted to issue such refunds, Kaufman had "better have change for a $20." See more »

Before "Bicentenial Man"... there was a group of robots...
I watched this movie one time, 20 years ago, but I still remember it fondly. I have always thought of it as an allegory, centered around two robots who "grow up" through their wild, teenage years, have a child and face crises together. They finally discover the meaning of love, in a way that is deeper than just being fond of each other, as they sacrifice for each other.
I was so impressed with this movie that I can still recall much of the dialog. I remember the jokes and plot twists. The movie is light-hearted, funny and insightful and is even poignant at times.
