“Now, be warned. I am an adult, by which I mean I am over 21. In fact, Iu0026#39;m near 60. And this movie is aimed at children. So, when I give it a craptastic rating, itu0026#39;s because I may not have the same humor level as a 5 year old, regardless of what my wife says. The beginning seemed to both of us, the wife and me, to be telling children that in order to be successful and rich, you must be a wealthy man and no woman would be interested in any man who wasnu0026#39;t. Itu0026#39;s about a boy, probably around 8 or 7 or some Jimmy Neutron age (ah! Thatu0026#39;s where Iu0026#39;ve seen the animation style) who is in love (REALLY?) with a girl around the same age. His inability to say what he wants to (u0026#39;Sue, I love you, will you marry me?u0026#39;) is what this whole shebang is about. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eScene change to … oh, I donu0026#39;t know.. 20 years into the future? The time line wasnu0026#39;t explained till way later. Our hero is living in an apartment with a kung-fu monkey, a pig in a cape, and what looks like a frog with ears whose name is Okra. What the what? u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eOh… Oh… I get it… theyu0026#39;re robots. They work at an amusement park, and hero boy is the guy who invented these autonomous, self aware robots who can smell and eat and fart and blow bubbles. Wow! The future looks so cool!u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eOkay… thatu0026#39;s all Iu0026#39;m gonna say about the plot and pretty much all Iu0026#39;m gonna say about the movie. At this point, I left and watched another episode of House of Cards, just to get the Ick out of my brain.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe wife wanted to take a nap so I put on something boring and innocuous. This movie, for example. So I lied. Sue me. Iu0026#39;m gonna say one more thing about the movie. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThere are a few cute moments. Like… umm… James Woods sort of cute. Didnu0026#39;t even recognize the voice, so good on him! I did tear up at the end, but then Iu0026#39;m a sucker for happy endings, even really stupid ones.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eChildren, especially those who have yet to be fully potty trained, may find this movie partially amusing. Then again, they may just throw their poo at you and ask for something intelligent.”
