In the not-so-distant future, David, a robot with actual human feelings, especially a never-ending love for his "mother," Monica, is adopted as a substitute for her real son, who, afflicted with an incurable disease, remains in "cryo-stasis." David lives happily with Monica and her husband, but when the couple's real son returns home after being cured, David's life changes dramatically. Directed by Steven Spielberg and based on the short story "Super-Toys Last All Summer Long" by Brian Aldiss.

Critics Consensus: A curious, not always seamless, amalgamation of Kubrick's chilly bleakness and Spielberg's warm-hearted optimism, A.I. is, in a word, fascinating.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that A.I.: Artificial Intelligence is a 2001 science fiction movie directed by Steven Spielberg about a young android named David who is the first of his kind to express and feel human emotion. There is some mild profanity. This movie is rated PG-13 for some sexual references (Joe is a robot gigolo created to have sex with women), and some violence (robots are destroyed, and there's a critically ill child and characters in peril). Kids may find the theme and some of the situations disturbing, and they may also be unsettled by the open-ended nature of the story, as well as the raw emotion expressed. It will be most suitable for teens, who may enjoy debating some of the issues of love, vulnerability, the nature of humanity, the future of the human race, and even the meaning of life. There is some bullying when David's "brother" and his friends don't accept him into their clique; this, and David's seemingly suicidal fall from a skyscraper, could seem all too human for many viewers.
