I have fond memories of this movie since it was a childhood movie, but finding out the Indian guy wasn't actually Indian was kinda disappointing. I mean, seriously.

Kind of like an ET rip-off but with a robot instead of an alien. The government agents are hilariously inept and the kids and his cute robot best friend easily outwit them. Basic Disney fare.

An OK movie but it wasn't as good as it once was.I remember when I was little, All the kids at school use to love Short Circuit & Johnny 5 & I guess I was hoping it was gonna be as good as I remembered.Steve Guttenberg, Fisher Stevens & Ally Sheedy were a good team but still weren't as good as the team in part 2.Out of both films, Short Circuit 2 was the better version
