ROBOT & FRANK (Theatrical Release USA 2012)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.4|5.0 Starsììì

Robot & Frank
is an easy-on-the-mind, fill-in-some-spare-time movie. Frank Langella does a good job of performing the part of an elderly, bored, and retired burglar. James Marsden is superb playing his concerned son, Hunter, with Liv Tyler playing his daughter, Madison. The movie follows a simple story outline and leaves the viewer with the feeling of enjoying a cookie for dessert.
