Goofs

At the end of the movie we are shown a USA Today newspaper. There's a cover story with the headline, "Funds Allotted To Preserve Historic Sites", but the article text below it has nothing to do with that headline. The text is all about "pulse for processor technician feedback" and other technical things unrelated to that headline. See more »

A very unusual and refreshing movie.
29 May 2013 | by jdohe2002See all my reviews

This movie is made by the producers of X-Men, Iron Man, and Spider Man. You can see the same style of cinematography in this movie and also the same style of opening and closing montages. Although the credits of the movie don't indicate it, the real star of this movie is Bobby Coleman. He is a very down to earth actor, unlike most young actors who are snot-nosed brats. It is interesting that his REAL sister (Holliston - best known for "Bless The Child" with Kim Basinger and "Dinner With Friends" with Greg Kinnear and "Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman" with Jane Seymour) is Bobby's sister in THIS movie in which their real parents Robert and Doris also appear. Bobby has been the lead character in several movies and TV shows including: "Martian Child" with John & Joan Cusack, Anjelica Houston and Howard Hessman; "Take" with Minnie Driver; "Post Grad" with Michael Keaton and Carol Burnett; "The Last Song" with Miley Cyrus and Greg Kinnear; "Snowmen" with Ray Liotta and Christopher Lloyd; "Must Love Dogs" with Stockard Channing and Christopher Plummer; and last year he took some time off to go off on 2 expeditions to the mountains of Switzerland and the deepest, darkest, dangerous parts of the Amazon with Mike Horn - the Jacques Cousteau of the 21st Century. In "Cody The Robosapien" set in New Orleans - Bobby portrays Henry, who is quite a bit like Bobby. The movie is a fast paced roller coaster of action, without anybody being killed, and no foul language, making it a PG-13 movie for the whole family. Bobby does a great job in his acting in that he is interacting with a CGI robot that was added in the editing room. If you like the movie "E.T. The Extra Terrestrial" you will love this also. It is sort of like "E.T." on steroids. Some of the same effects used in Iron Man are used for Robosapien. I gave this movie a rating of 10, because in the genre of family films, I can't think of any film that is any better. It is safe to go to this movie without having to cover anybody's eyes or ears, or require an explanation of the birds and the bees. Little kids will love the robot, whereas older kids will relate to Bobby's character, and adults will want to trade their own kids in for Bobby.
