Academy Award®-winner Robin Williams stars in a delightfully heartwarming comedy about one extraordinary android who just wants to be an ordinary guy! It doesn't take long for the Martin family to realize Andrew (Williams), who was purchased as a mere "household appliance," is no run-of-the-mill robot! Funny, incredibly lifelike, and possessing an astounding level of creativity, this special machine soon takes on a life of his own -- and eventually begins a centuries-long quest to achieve true humanity!

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Bicentennial Man is ruined by a bad script and ends up being dull and mawkish.
...aspires to an almost adult level of seriousness.

Common Sense Says
Film about robot who wants to be human is so-so.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this film has some mild profanity and sexual references, including a "facts of life" discussion, Andrew's adaptation so that he can have sex (but not children), a post-sex conversation in bed, and one of the most romantic descriptions of the sex act ever written. There are also ill-behaved and surly children whose behavior is not curtailed by the family.
