Early UK versions were cut by 5 secs by the BBFC to remove a shot of man holding nunchakus, and to edit 2 uses of the word "fucking" for a PG certificate (though some debate remains as to whether the swearing may have been misheard by mistake). The nunchaku shot was restored for the 2002 DVD release though the swearing remained cut. See more »
This movie takes the robot Johnny 5 on a magical whirlwind tour of New York. He meets up with his friend and creator Ben Jahrvi they have fun, and Ben falls for an uptown girl. Johnny 5 comes to the aide of his friend and rescues the bank from a heist that he helped! Sounds like a lot to pack into the film but Steve does a great job of getting everything it needs to be into the small amount of time that this film takes up in our small meaningless lives. If you haven't seen this movie, I suggest you rent it. Forget the blockbuster's and just rent this down to home comical romp through the lives or Ben and Johnny 5, I guarantee you will not regret it.
