The Neverending Western Movie: 4/5. What if John Wayne actually had to kill real people in his movies? How does he retire when the nature of the industry is to kill or be killed? That is essentially the premise of this interesting story. The ending is good as well, though perhaps a little predictable. Emma Roberts was originally cast in June 2020, until Shailene Woodley replaced her in June of the following year. [7] [8] [9] Although expecting to be imprisoned for having clone robots, the feds can't prosecute as Ashley has blown up the police station and evidence. As C2 and E2 convinced Charles and Elaine to be less cynical, they kiss, then take C2 and E2's place in the wedding. a b " Robots (2023) - Financial Information". The Numbers. Nash Information Services, LLC . Retrieved July 29, 2023.

Charles uses his robot clone, which is called C2, to impersonate Charles at the office, do domestic work for Charles, and go on romantic dates. As shown in “Robots” trailer, Charles also makes C2 shave Charles’ pubic hair in his genital area. The only time that Charles wants to be on a date as himself (and not sending the C2 robot in his place) is when he knows he’ll be having sex on that date.The character of Elaine is a lot less developed than the character of Charles. The movie doesn’t reveal anything about Elaine’s family or what she wants to do with her life, other than spending money that’s given to her by men she dates. “Robots” spends the first 10 to 15 minutes showing how Charles gets women to date him: He goes to a local ice-skating rink and deliberately falls down near an attractive woman whom he thinks will help him get up. Zirn Left Unguarded, the Jenghik Palace in Flames, Jon Westerley Dead: 2/5. A ridiculous title for a rather disappointing story. This space opera reads as if we're starting from the third act in a story, and the story then decides to give a plot synopsis of the previous act. The premise of the story is interesting enough, but the story is too short to really appreciate the interesting world/universe it tries to describe and build up. The Robot Who Looked Like Me contains thirteen stories, including the title story, originally published in Cosmopolitan (!) in August 1973. It’s not at all the kind of story I’d expect to find in Cosmopolitan, but maybe things were different in the early 70s. Very, very different.

Their motivations are simple enough: instead of navigating the complex world of dating themselves, they send their computerized counterparts to do the dirty work for them. Genius! However, what they don’t anticipate is the two doppelgängers falling in love and announcing to their dismayed owners that they’re running away to get married. Serves them right… In 2032, after advanced robotics enabled humanity to use lifelike androids as servants and manual laborers, affluent suburbanites Elaine and Charles illegally use android doubles of themselves to avoid the time constraints of dating and the strain of work. Charle's C2 not only does his job, but also 'primes' women so the womanizer can have sex with them. Elaine's E2 dates 12 men at once, having sex with them so the gold digger can get money and expensive gifts.

Voices: 1/5. I don't understand this story. Perhaps the absurdity of it is supposed to be a play at satire, but it poorly delivers on that front. The Fault in Our Stars, The Secret Life of the American Teenager, The Last Letter from Your Lover, and To Catch a Killer are among her other well-known film and television series credits. While the film focuses mainly on these two characters, it also features a large ensemble cast that includes Emanuela Postachchini, Richard Lippert, Chelsea Edmundson, Casey Messer, Barney Burman, Tiffany C. Adams, Samantha Ashley, Nic Wolfe, Jennifer Ingrum, and many others. Is That What People Do?: 4/5. A short tale of a man encountering a strange pair of binoculars that lets him do some out-of-environment people-watching from the safety of his home. Not much substance to this story, but it's interesting enough. Is That What People Do?" ( Anticipations, 1978) A man finds a pair of binoculars and uses them to observe people in nearby highrise buildings.

Ritman, Alex (June 21, 2021). "Cannes: Shailene Woodley Joins 'Robots' Comedy From 'Borat' Writer Anthony Hines". The Hollywood Reporter . Retrieved December 10, 2021. Culture Clash:A Lothario and a female gold digger, who each have illegal look-alike robots that do dirty deeds for them, go on a misadventure together to look for the robots after the robots “go rogue” by falling in love and running away together.

During this wretched and very tedious misadventure, Charles and Elaine turn to the person who sold them C2 and E2 in the first place: a nerdy inventor named Zach (played by Paul Rust), who hastily says to Charles and Elaine that C2 and E2 are starting to take on more human qualities, such as falling in love and having complete freedom of choice. There’s no logical explanation given for why these robots have suddenly taken on more human qualities. Zach says that C2 and E2 have to be destroyed because C2 and E2 could expose Zach, Charles and Elaine for being involved in these illegal robot transactions.
