Short Circuit 2 (1988)

2 corrected entries

Corrected entry: In beginning Johnny Five has smiley face sticker on his red 'backpack. Later, when going to the bookstore, the smiley face has been removed.



Correction: Which is possible. Unless it comes back afterward, there's no mistake.


Corrected entry: In the beginning when Johnny Five is telling Ben about his upgrades, he mentions that he has a full 500 megabytes of memory. While that may have been science fiction in the 1980's, we know full well today that 500 megabytes would be pathetically insufficient to store the amount of information he accrues, not to mention the capacity for artificial intelligence.

Correction: Some time in the future, a perfectly intelligent android may be able to run on less than 500 megs. Maybe we just haven't figured out the right compression algorithm or something. Besides, how much space artificial intelligence would take wasn't known and almost certainly couldn't be accurately estimated back in the eighties. I think this can be forgiven (like a movie filmed in 1980, set in 2010, but uses 5 1/4" floppies and Betamax).

Fred: Fred.
Johnny 5: That's what I said. Derf.



When Johnny is spinning the two robbers around, you can tell that he is actually holding dummies. In the close up shots of the robbers, you can see them kicking their legs, but in the wide shots of the room, they are rigid and lifeless.
