''I, Robot'' is a 2004 sci-fi action/mystery movie starring Creator/WillSmith. It bears no direct connection to Creator/IsaacAsimov's book of the same name, aside from the character of Susan Calvin, who is a prominent recurring character in many of Asiomv's ''Robot'' stories, and the premise of the Three Laws.

** Though it's worth noting that, when first discussing it, Sonny says that he has "dreams," as in, more than one. It's unspecified if it's different each time, or the same one repeated, but regardless, only the one they discuss ever becomes pertinent to the plot.

* DoesNotDrive: PlayedStraight for most of society, who puts their faith in robots and automation and so commutes in self-driving cars. [[InvertedTrope Inverted]] for Del, who drives manually as a reflection of his stigma.
