Where to start with this one? Seriously, it's difficult to pinpoint!

Let's start with Sophie...a character so annoying, so high-maintenance, so unbearably righteous, so bloody lazy...she married a fortune, lives in a mansion [just as high-maintenace as her], becomes dis-employed and yet she moans...and moans...and [perpetually] moans. Give it a goddamn rest, luv!

So...out of righteous intentions, she sacks the servants - rendering them unemployed [with 2 years salary as compensation] and ripe for deportation! To 'help' out around the mansion, this young couple invest in a robot...not just any robot, but a perfectly-buttocked, lawn-mowing, terrifically-toned, bisexual Adonis! [Who devours Dickens and dicks!] Who wrote this!?!

Buttocks feature prominently in Life Like - a source of great enjoyment...as the actors twist their bodies into incredible shapes so as not to expose their peckers to the camera. It's [unintentionally] hysterical!

There's the robot-maker...the slimiest man you would never want to meet...far less buy an extremely expensive, perfectly-buttocked, lawn-mowing, terrifically-toned, bisexual robot from!

As you may have guessed...the 'robot' dabbles with both his owners...the bathroom scene really has to be seen to be 'believed'!

Then...there's the 'twist' - it's an absolute howler...and, rather baffling...as to how this director-cum-writer thought he could 'sell' this to an audience.

It's all just a little bit too silly...as for the final scene: What was that all about?!?



The(ir) Blurb...

An idealistic attractive young couple acquires a stunning, life-like robot for guilt free help, but as the three grow closer, their perception of humanity will be altered forever.
