This movie about a young dreamer from a small town is fun and inspiring, as well as cute and funny. It’s the perfect formula for a family film, even if all the characters are Robots.
The movie opens in Rivet Town, where Herb Copperbottom (Stanley Tucci) is dancing through the streets on his way home from work because he is expecting a huge delivery. When Mrs. Copperbottom (Dianne Weist) tells him he missed the delivery, but that making the baby is the best part, they start building something that is going to change their lives and many other lives in ways they never knew possible. What they build is Rodney Copperbottom, a young idealist with a knack for inventing. His idol is Big Weld (Mel Brooks), an entrepreneur who won’t turn down anyone who submits an invention to him, because he believes in progress, and that there are too many needs going unfulfilled in his city. His motto is “See a need, fill a need.” Rodney keeps this thought with him as he grows up. When graduation arrives, Rodney wants to leave Rivet Town. Rodney (Ewan MacGregor) knows that he can invent great things to help his family, and since his idol, Big Weld, has never turned anyone down, he is going to Robot City to show Big Weld one of his inventions, and make his mark in the industry.
