  1. Predictably cute and so sweet it will rot your teeth at 20 paces. Children will love it, but schedule a trip to the dentist immediately thereafter.

  2. I ordered and the item was delivered to my door in lest than one week. GREAT Service.

    Although, I did order another item and have NOT received the movie and still my credit card was charged and have Not had a response from Amazon or the seller as to why and what the problem is. To which I have contacted three times. I will not shop here again.

  3. I almost did not finish the film because Fisher Stevens’ East Indian character Ben Jabituya was very annoying (It brings to mind such annoyances as Chris Tucker in THE FIFTH ELEMENT…and Jar Jar Binks doesn’t seem so bad after all!). SHORT CIRCUIT is another attempt of filmakers in the 80’s trying to do Disney type family films due to the success of E.T. An experimental robot is struck by lightning at an electronics lab dealing in artificial intelligence/robotics. It then takes on a life and personality of its own taking on the name “Number 5” (it’s actual numerical name from a bunch of experimental robots of its class). Then (surprise!) the military gets wind of it and wants to destroy it (how many movies have we seen this plot device!). Then the race is on to save it..him. If Steven’s/Jabituya character is annoying, the Robot is even more annoying once it starts talking and sprouting pop culture quips fed to it by humans thinking he’s an alien. Overall, a film that has a couple of laughs with a fish-out-of-water theme along with some pathos to make the audience take out their hankerchiefs. However, in the end we really don’t care about anyone in this film.

  4. wasting your time on this lump of corn-fed … matter. It’s sooooo bad
    I thought that it might’ve ruined Steve Guttenberg and Ally Sheedy’s
    careers….wait a minute! It did ruin their careers! Do the world a
    favor and ignore it! Let it fade away into “The Hell Of Bad
    Family Movie Ideas” like Police Academy: Mission to Moscow and
    The Wizard

  5. The DVD did not work. It skipped so much that it was unwatchable and I returned it.
