Number Five is the real star of this energetic film. Sheedy, Guttenberg and company are just supporting players.

A film that demands emotional connections with a robot whose voice is one of the most annoying ever produced. Give us Hal, R2-D2 or a barber shop quartet of Daleks any day.

John Badham's Pinocchio story is sweet, silly and now charmingly old-fashioned.

It's basically a kid's movie, and quite possibly the kids will like it. But they'll have to be fairly young kids.

One of the stranger ironies to be found in Hollywood these days is that some of its most resourceful directors use high-tech wizardry and state-of- the-art movie technology to make films that rail against the tyranny of science.

No movie with Austin Pendleton can be all bad, but this one makes a game try.

Scripters get credit for some terrific dialog that would have been a lot less disarming if not for the winsome robot and Sheedy's affection for it. Guttenberg plays his best goofy self.

The movie, which has the clean, well-scrubbed look of an old Disney comedy, is nicely acted by Miss Sheedy, who demonstrates a light-comedy touch not unlike Amy Irving's [and] Mr. Guttenberg.

The film has nowhere to go except to give us a predictable initial confrontation between Guttenberg and Sheedy over military weapons.
