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. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

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!

User Reviews

better than usual Disney material
26 December 2000 | by Zane-05See all my reviews

Hmmmm, why don't people seem to like this movie? I think it's one of the better made-for-Disney-Channel films in the last couple of years. After seeing how good Ryan Merriman was in Deep End, I was looking forward to Smart House and I wasn't disappointed. Hopefully, Ryan can do another Disney film in 2001.
