Storyline

A 13-year-old boy wins a computerized house manned by a cyborg maid named PAT. When he and his dad move into the house, he figures that his dad will cease considering re-marrying since the house and PAT can handle all of the cooking and cleaning chores. However, his father soon shows an interest in the computer programmer. This sets the boy into tinkering with PAT's program and setting in motion a too-wife (and mother)-like nagging robot.

Quotes

Ben: Pat, take it easy.
Pat: Easy? You think I wouldn't rather be taking it easy? But no, I'm too busy keeping up with the Coopers! Slaving away in a hot control room, doing homework, throwing parties, keeping schedules, making your lives perfect. So you can bring another woman into my domain? I don't think so, mister. I am a mother like no other and I will not sit back and allow myself to be preempted!

not great but not bad either
29 August 2001 | by psychocanuckSee all my reviews

It's not a bad movie. The story's interesting, the acting is alright. It's got a lot of things in it that are unrealistic, but that doesn't make it bad (I mean how realistic is The Wizard of Oz or Planet of the Apes) It's pretty good for a made for TV movie, I'd say. If it's on TV and you've got nothing better to do, I would recommend watching it.
