Editorial Reviews

In the near-distant future, a female romance writer is planning to write her next book in a remote mountain cabin. A friend convinces her to bring along a "companion", a nearly-human android to cook and clean. She settles on a male companion named "Geoffrey." Bored with some of Geoffrey's behavior, she tinkers with his programming -- first his personality, then his sexuality. Real trouble comes when she gives his mind access to "random data."

It's taken me years to track this down - I remember seeing this made-for-tv movie years ago on daytime tv. It was absolutely brilliant - a woman writer suffering from writer's block hires a robot (Bruce Greenwood) to do the hard work and heads out to the mountains to write her next novel. Frustrated with his limited conversation ("What is it with you and syntax?") - she decides to upgrade him with 'interesting' results. Geoffrey the robot is very attractive and the more she ratchets up his abilities, the more is revealed about the conflicts between men and women, the expectations we demand of each other that even a robot can never fully deliver.

The film is tongue-in-cheek, but harrowing and sad too. Be careful what you ask for of a 'person' because you might just get it, in spades!

Bruce Greenwood is outstanding in this movie. Why are made-for-tv movies so under-rated? This one is terrific and SHOULD GO TO DVD NOW!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun old USA movie March 3, 2009
Format:VHS Tape
I just wish they would release this on dvd. Great fun, I loved the old made for tv USA movies they made back in the 80's and 90's. Bruce Greenwood is a total hottie in this one and did a fantastic job of making you feel badly for his character while being scary.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oldie but a Goodie September 29, 2008
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
I loved this futuristic movie. I would love to have a robot like Jeffrey to do all the manly duties without the hassle. This is definitely a chick flick.

I had seen this years ago and loved it. It is still good even now and can even be a believable futuristic possability, as with all scifi thrillers scary but true.
