An interesting take on a buddy film. Definitely tries to pull heartstrings as a family drama as well. Some humor. Well written and acted. Gets points for originality. Sarsgaard does a great job with the voice of the robot.

Good movie. Ending was a little different.

Not a bad movie, nor a great movie either. (I thought it felt a bit like a Disney film with a few obscenities thrown in here and there.) The theme of growing old and losing your memory has been done before, and just as well or better. We'll probably see more and more movies like this until they all start to blend together...as we get older and can no longer keep them straight.
