Pretty terrible little Disney film starring Jay Underwood as a robotic "son" engineered by Alan Thicke who proceeds to find himself engaged in "wonderfully imaginative" situations of "comic unfortunate...ness." unfortunately for us the film is a dire little copycat clone of other real-looking-robots-created-by-mad-scientists movies and the only thing that could have spiced up this film a bit and added some zest would have been if, at the end, Underwood unleashed a whole load of kick-butt on the entire cast and turned into a Terminator sent from the future to eliminate John Connor.

By the way, what happened to Jay Underwood? From "Uncle Buck" to straight-to-video fare such as "Road to Redemption" and commercials for toothpaste? Choosing a recurring role in this disappointing series may have something to do with his career shortcomings.
