Not Recommended for Families


This latest comedy from Touchstone follows the life and times of the title character, an android (Robin Williams), who is purchased as a household robot programmed to perform menial tasks. The Martin family quickly learns that they don’t have an ordinary robot as Andrew begins to experience emotions and creative thought. In a story that spans two centuries, Andrew learns the intricacies of humanity, life and love, as his desire to become more human becomes a reality.

Dove Review

Content Description

Two profanities from the woman the robot falls in love with; the robot is taught how to swear, so we hear one over and over as he learns how to say it; a teen girl uses a crude word; a flatulence joke. Although the film has many positive qualities, we can't recommend it due to the misuse of God’s name.
