Johnny Five is Alive?

Short Circuit was a "high-tech" comedy that came out during the 80's. When I was a lad I thought this was a cool movie. Looking back it was okay but not as good as it used to be. A military robot rebels against it's masters and goes out on it's own. It's your typical P.G. rated comedy with some slapstick childish humor mixed in with some light "adult" language as well. Now what's an 80's movie without Ally Sheedy or Steve Guttenberg? (this time you have both!) Short Circuit was made during the time period when Ally Sheedy was an attractive lass. She stars as the lady who harbors the robot (named Johnny-5). Steve Guttenberg stars as the Military engineer who designed it. Fisher Stevens (yes Fisher Stevens) co-stars as his East Indian assistant.

It's a harmless film that worth a watch. The robot was kind of cool and the comedy is funny at times. Short Circuit was followed by the obligatory 80's sequel (I guess it made a slight profit for it to warrant one).
