An experimental `bio-chip' bestows anthropomorphic properties on an outdated, household vacuum cleaner in this derivative family yarn featuring Amanda Donohoe and Giancarlo Esposito.

Newcomer Jared Robbins takes center stage as `Stardust's' owner, a schoolboy whose scientist-father has been imprisoned for refusing to co-operate with the `evil military complex.' Get the picture? After promises of comparisons to `Short Circuit' and `Home Alone,' this fantasy quickly fizzles out.

It started off strong and I really wanted to like it, but `Stardust' is a major waste of time. I kept waiting for the dumb vacuum cleaner -- and the movie -- to come to life.
