The delivery van that brings Andrew is supposed to be Electric, but it has a tailpipe which are not required for this type of vehicle. This is not a goof if the vehicle is a hydrogen or similarly powered vehicle which while running on electricity would have a water by-product which needs an exhaust pipe. See more »

Firstly, i have not read Asimov's book and therefore cannot remark on any errors in translation from book to film.
I have read many of the comments posted here on the IMDb, but fail to see why so many people feel the need to mention that the world is perceived as perfect in the the future, maybe it is, maybe it isn't, the fact is, it's not important. This movie quite simply follows the life of a man trapped in a robots body and his quest to be accepted in the world, and be allowed to love and cherish the people close to him.
I have to say that i didn't expect much from this movie, i thought it would be a kids film, full of typical Robin Williams style laughs, i was way off in my assumption. This is probably Robin Williams's best performance and it is a very emotional journey through change and development of the human condition.
Overall the film is quite amusing, very touching and is full of realistic characters all very well cast to not overshadow 'Andrew' as he quests over 200 years for acceptance.
A great movie 9/10
