Directed by Allan Arkush
Richard B. Shull
Get ready for a futuristic love story like no other as comedy legend Andy Kaufman (In God We Tru$t, TV’s Taxi) and song-and-dance great Bernadette Peters (Pennies from Heaven, The Jerk) co-star in this charming, offbeat romantic-comedy by cult filmmaker Allan Arkush (Hollywood Boulevard, Rock ’n’ Roll High School, Get Crazy). While standing on a bleak factory repair shelf, ValCom-17485 (Kaufman), a robot valet, and hostess robot AquaCom-89045 (Peters) strike up a conversation. What starts as an instant connection soon transforms into love, and the two decide to override their programmed lives and explore the forbidden world beyond the factory window. With the police on their trail and a baby on the way, they’re on the digital road to romance and adventure in this heartwarming comedy that is truly “electric.” The top-notch cast includes Randy Quaid (The Long Riders), Kenneth McMillan (Dune), Melanie Mayron (Girlfriends), Christopher Guest (This Is Spinal Tap), Dick Miller (Gremlins), Paul Bartel (Scenes from the Class Struggle in Beverly Hills), Mary Woronov (Eating Raoul), Kathleen Freeman (The Blues Brothers), Richard B. Shull (Splash) and Jeffrey Kramer (Jaws, Jaws 2). Written by John Hill (Quigley Down Under, Little Nikita).
Blu-ray Extras Include:

Optional English Subtitles
