At first, I had no desire to see this movie. My husband, however, did so I plopped next to him on the couch when he put the DVD in the player. I was really surprised how good it was! There was quite a bit of discussion between us about whether a surrogate robot would be a good idea. And, while we weren't completely surprised at any of the 'twists,' we found great enjoyment from the journey the characters took. Even the ending was satisfying. I can't say it was an awesomely fantastic movie that everyone should run out to rent or buy, but if you like science fiction and have a couple of hours to spare, it's not a terrible way to spend your time.
