Trivia

Chip is described as having a high-resolution, multi-flexible plastic coating that feels a lot like flesh. In real life, a variety of flesh like plastics and silicone resins exist, under trade names such as Cyber Skin, UR3, Fanta Flesh and others. These plastics are what allow life sized dolls to create and maintain the fantasy of a real life partner. See more »

Doesn't exactly hold up.
4 May 2019 | by chiguy17See all my reviews

I have to admit, it's been so long since I've seen this movie, I don't know how accurate of a rating I can give this; however, based on what I remember, it was pretty bad. Even at like that p or 11, I thought it was cheesy.

Although, it didn't dawn on me until just now (after being reminded the movie existed) that the thought of a single, older man building a young teenage android has some deeper questions that need to be asked, lol. 🤔
