Mr. Dr.
A retired criminal has become an isolated recluse and is given a Robot Buddy to help aid him. Eventually warming up to it, the robot inspires him to revert back to his criminal nature and together they perform acts of robbery.

First premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and winner of the Alfred P. Sloan Feature Film Prize.

In short, I want to see it.

I got a Logo Just Cause
looks pretty promising.
Just got back from seeing this movie. A bit sadder than I expected for an odd couple buddy comedy, but otherwise really good
Awesome movie. Definitely go see it.
I liked it, but I had to wonder why the robot only has two individual digits and has no programmed sense of right and wrong. The robot is basically a sociopath with poor dexterity.

The it-thingy
This was a fun film. I thought the ending was sad but kind of heartwarming at the same time - Robot is taken away and has its memory wiped, but Frank's family is reconciled. :)

[up] ...that isn't how sociopathy works. And, strictly speaking, it does have a moral code - it's programming is focused on promoting its owner's mental health and ability to function with minimal assistance. Asking it to run ethical analyses centered around the interactions of large groups is probably an unnecessary feature most of the time (how many assisted-living patients function best in illegal circumstances?) and would probably be considered unnecessarily expensive for the low benefit offered.
Anyone who looks dangerous is dangerous.

Anyone who doesn't look dangerous is dangerous and sneaky.

Excellent movie. Yeah, sort of a Downer Ending but I think it fit for a way to end the movie. He got his one big heist in, right?

Pirate AND writer!
I don't normally watch films like this, but I really enjoyed this one. My expectations were played with quite a bit.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
