Frank Legella's new high-concept comedy has a trailer.
ROBOT AND FRANK LOOKS ADORABLE
Looks more to me like a science fiction The King's Speech - two characters meet, have trouble getting along, become friends and learn valuable life lessons from each other. I'm sure it'll be enjoyable for Langella and Sarsgaard alone, but not all that earth shaking.
While this is true, I'm overjoyed to see a sci-fi movie of this tone and subject.
So... why does there have to be robbery in this movie? Why can't it just be a movie about an old man learning to understand progress and love his robot helper? Must there be some action element simply because it's science fiction?
