Frank is an aging ex-jewel thief, and his two grown children are worried that he can no longer care for himself. In deciding what to do with Frank, the most likely option appears to be putting him in a nursing home. But Frank's son comes up with another option: buy Frank a walking, talking robot programmed to look after him and improve his physical and mental health. Frank resists the robot at first, but he warms to it after realizing that it could be the perfect heist companion

A Ton of Fun


 This movie is the best 88 minutes of my life. It is simple and sweet,not complicated, a joy to watch. It deals with a older retired cat burglar with dementa, and how robot helped him. It is slighty off center,a story that is original and not main stream hollywood. If you want to watch a movie that doesn't hurt your brain, watch this film. A pure joy!
