Rebuttal to DocCathode:
It was an excellent movie, but dragged in spots. Also, they could have interwoven a little more humor, but the minimal humor served to preserve that 1950’s tone regarding robots replacing man - typical of Isaac Asimov as well as Ray Bradbury.
However, regarding the age issue:
[SPOILER] Andrew, the Android is a new model household appliance when purchased, and Little Miss is maybe 6 years old. She has an offspring around maybe 20-25. (A generation is assumed to be 20 years.) The offspring grows, and Andrew eventually falls in love with her…what’s her name?
There’s no way Andrew could be 200 years old at the end! Yes, at one point they mention his age of 200 years. Even if what’s her name (Little, Little Miss) lives to be 100 or 110, Andrew could only be about 130! He is only one generation older than Little Miss’ offspring. Also, IIRC, she refused the prosthetic implants, but now I’ll have to watch it again! [/SPOILER]
Heading soon to a VCR near me, ASAP.
