Short Circuit. 1986.

A group of experimental robots, number 5 is struck by lightning and develops a mind of it's own while the company Nova believe it is haywire and can be a danger.

I haven't seen this since the early 90s and forgot how funny it is, G.W. Bailey may seem a bit typecasted opposite Steve Guttenberg but they do bring the laughter with Ally Sheedy as the young woman who ends up with Number 5. Fisher Stevens plays the co-designer of the robots and bring some humour with miss pronouncing phrases but at the same time coming out with comical phrases. Another classic 80s film.
