    I enjoy this quite a bit actually…but can’t say I’ proclaim to love it (especailly three times). But it’s great to see I’m not alone. Williams, in another (thankfully) reserved role, shines and this film really appeals to all ages.

    So glad to see someone else sing its praises. I’ve been meaning to write this up for a while…guess I don’t have to now – I’ll just refer them to your great write-up:)

    Oh and the ending gets me everytime…but don’t tell anyone I said that:P

    • I’ve written about Bicentennial Man before on other sites, and I will continue to. This movie gets a lot of flack and I feel the need to speak up for it because, frankly, it reeeeeeally isn’t that bad. Feel free to do a write up too, we can discuss it.

      And don’t worry, the ending gets me too. Also, whenever Andrew goes “that will not do” or “this will not do”, I always feel the urge to go “HELL YEAH ROBOT YOU OUT HUMAN THESE IDIOTS!” :-P

    While this movie doesn’t have a shining reputation I agree, it’s definitely enjoyable. I don’t love it, but the Sam Neill – Robin Williams dynamic is just incredibly entertaining. Makes me wish the entire movie was about just them two, but alas, it was not.

    • Yeah, their scenes are excellent. Sam Neill is not used nearly enough, he should’ve gotten better work after Jurassic Park.

      • Heather says:

        If it were up to me I would cast Sam Neill in everything. I think he’s that good.

        I still haven’t seen this movie, was turned off by the trailers and peoples opinions, maybe I should give it a go?

    Sam Neill.. never made a bad film

    • He was awesome in Merlin with Miranda Richardson and Helena Bonham Carter.
