We keep hearing that the robots are coming. Robot and Frank takes a rather droll look at the future, one in which robots are home health aides and librarians. Concerned that their father’s memory is slipping, Frank’s kids get him a robot to help him eat the right foods, stay on a schedule, and keep his memory nimble. Frank (Frank Langella) has other plans: A retired petty thief, Frank trains the robot to pick locks and do the little things his aging body can no longer get away with. There’s not much in the way of supporting help (from Susan Sarandon, Liv Tyler or James Marsden), but the sparring between Langella and the robotic voice of Peter Sarsgaard keeps the action lively and amusing.
