The Blue Fairy... nothing artificial about it!

Haley Joel Osment is one great child actor. It is in this movie and some other movies like Pay It Forward and the Sixth Sense that he demonstrated his talent fully. 

I like this A.I. - Artificial Intelligence best! 
Screenplay: Steven Spielberg. Director: Steven Spielberg.
What's there not to like? :-)

The main theme? 
Love of a child, a robot child. Can the human love a robot child like his/her own? And then can a robot be programmed to love his mom? I believe the writer also attempts to associate God's love for us; that the creator need not have the child loves him back as a condition for creating him. It is thus a most inspirational movie for those who cares to look and listen.

For a human to act as a robot child, Haley is amazingly good. For many moments, I was actually convinced he's not human, just a robot trying to be human! The plot of the movie is great and one of the most original and authentic movie of all time! I love it!

I liked this one. Felt like it had enormous potential although it held back a little. Nice work!

Thanks, William. It's a great combo between humanity & science. One day in future this might just be real!

I'm man enough to admit that I cried like a girl (Not trying to be chauvinistic here) during the last part of this movie. It was so bloody sad. Literally a 22nd Century Pinocchio Story Involving a Robotic Child named David who wants to be real human boy.  As I said before the ending of the movie about the last 30 minutes are heart wrenching. Even remembering it now makes me wanna tear up.      Look I watched Titanic and thought I was boring (no offense to the people …

The intelligence may be artificial but the love for a mother is not! A most thought provoking movie beautifully crafted by Spielberg.
review by . May 08, 2009
This Pinnocchio-like tale was highly enjoyable throughout but started to go downhill towards the end. The actor that plays the boy is extremely talented and you really feel for him when he can't get the same affection as his "human" brother. His search for affection has some dangerous consequences and leads his parents to abandon him in a very heart-wrenching scene. He later meets and befriends a robot "gigalo" (Jude Law) who tries to help him to attain his mother's …

This film was started by Stanley Kubrick (2001: A Space Oddysey) but finished by Stephen Spielberg (E.T., War of the Worlds).    A modern Pinocchio-like story, Haley Joel Osment plays an artificial intelligence that is "programmed" to love the Mother who buys him and speaks a specific activation code. However, his adoptive family rejects him, leaving him yearning for love and looking for the "blue fairy" for his answers--and a reunion with his beloved Mother.     Osment's …

Pros: Good idea and FX     Cons: Long with large plot holes.     The Bottom Line: Great idea, but plot holes ruined what could have been a classic.     Plot Details: This opinion reveals minor details about the movie's plot. Ever since the first days of civilization, mankind has had to ponder the meaning of life. Centuries later and still no closer to an answer, humankind has seen society evolve into an existence where machines are commonplace …

About this movie

Wiki

A.I. Artificial Intelligence, also known as Artificial Intelligence: A.I. or simply A.I., is a 2001 science fiction film directed, produced and co-written by Steven Spielberg. Based on Brian Aldiss's short story Super-Toys Last All Summer Long, the film stars Haley Joel Osment, Frances O'Connor, Jude Law, Sam Robards, Jake Thomas and William Hurt. Set sometime in the future, A.I. tells the story of David, a child-like android programmed with the unique ability to love.

Development of A.I. originally began with Stanley Kubrick in the early 1970s. Kubrick hired a series of writers up until the mid-1990s, including Brian Aldiss, Bob Shaw, Ian Watson and Sara Maitland. The film languished in development hell for years because Kubrick felt computer-generated imagery was not advanced enough to create the David character, whom he believed no child actor would believably portray. In 1995 Kubrick handed A.I. to Steven Spielberg, but the film did not gain momentum until the death of Kubrick in 1999. Spielberg remained close to Watson's film treatment for the screenplay, and replicated Kubrick's secretive style of filmmaking. A.I. was greeted with mostly positive reviews from critics and became a moderate financial success. This film was dedicated to Kubrick's memory with a ...
