Jack Weston's final film. He worked on this project after production was completed on his previous films, Dirty Dancing (1987) and Ishtar (1987). After completing production on this film, Weston retired from acting. He passed away on May 3, 1996 at the age of seventy-one. See more »
This movie is set in an American city, but when Ben is selling his toys at the beginning you can see a sign for an entrance to the Toronto Subway or TTC. See more »
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 »
I thought this was a very touching movie. Johnny 5 is a very sympathetic character with real human-like qualities. I enjoyed the romantic angle and I could identify with all the characters. I bought this video for my Mother and she loved it. Overall, I think this is a very underrated movie and I think this is an instance where the sequel is better than the original. Remember, it's a fantasy - it's good escapism.
