"Robot & Frank"

I was a little skeptical about this movie at first. A movie about a retired cat burglar and a robot? But after watching it for a few minutes I was sucked in. The story is a about an elderly cat burglar, played brilliantly by Frank Langella, whose adult children hire a humanoid robot to look after him. He has a lousy diet, doesn't get any exercise, and his place is a pig sty. He reluctantly agrees to have the robot live with him and things start to change. That's all I'll reveal without giving away the story. The movie includes several unexpected twists, and in the end, I found it very entertaining. 
4 solid stars out of 5.
