This is a very weird film. It had the chance to be a nice cheesy 80's comedy about computers, but it went dark, not in a good way. It fails as a comedy, romance, sci-fi, or any other genre. Not even the fun Moroder tunes could save it.

" An artificially intelligent PC and his human owner find themselves in a romantic rivalry over a woman. Worth seeing for the premise alone."

"March 22 "So what is it? Some new building?" "No... some new brick." This was a very weird movie, even for 80's movie standards. The premise of the movie is very unique and the execution is pretty good. This and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are the only good movies that Steve Barron directed."
