Could have taken this story much further, but, entertaining as written. Well acted, and a touching story line.

A little slow in places. A little predictable. Burt, a touching tale nonetheless.

One of the best I have seen tis year. Sure hits home about caring for parents and is humorous at the same time. Worth the money and the time.

Christopher D. Ford's film is nothing more than a Lifetime movie dolled up in cheap Philip K. Dick drag. Full Review

While the premise certainly makes it stand out from the sea of dysfunctional family dramas, a cute idea alone doesn't quite cut it. In the end it's just not funny enough to be completely entertaining and the sentiment feels tacked on. Full Review

The pleasure of watching the star sling barbs at Sarsgaard's sandpaper-dry android, shyly court sexy librarian Susan Sarandon and rage against geriatric befuddlement doesn't offset what's essentially a mediocre character study dipped in sci-fi conventions and Social Security–age sentimentality. Full Review
Eric Kohn
Robot and Frank succeeds where "Ted" fails because, unlike McFarlane, Schreier and Ford render the relationship between the human character and the robot in largely credible terms. Full Review

Wall Street Journal
The concept is schematic and predictable, and watching first-rate actors - the cast includes Susan Sarandon as a local librarian - doing third-rate material is a dubious pleasure. Full Review
