"Thrilling! Funny! Terrific!"
-Larry King

Fasten your seat bolts and gear up for a hilarious, heartwarming comedy that's "fun for the whole family!" (Clay Smith, Access Hollywood)

With the help of his misfit mechanical friends, a small town robot named Rodney embarks on the adventure of a lifetime as he heads for the big city to pursue his dreams - and ultimately proves that anyone can shine no matter what they're made of.

Featuring an all-star voice cast and a groundbreaking visual style that pushes the boundaries of animated filmmaking, Robots is a dazzling, fun-filled feast for the eyes and a riveting good time for all ages!

My Comments:

This is a good movie but doesn't quite have enough laughs to make it great. Couple that with the subject matter - humanoid robots - and you end up with a movie that just doesn't quite compare with its competition (particularly since it was released the same year as Pixar's The Incredibles and DreamWorks' Madagascar). Still, it's worth a watch, particularly for Robin Williams' manic "Fender."
