Short Circuit, starring Ally Sheedy and Steve Guttenberg, was
released in 1986, and Short Circuit 2 in 1988. In this
movie, a military robot (Number 5) is zapped by
lighting, which gives it a personality. After
escaping its facility and getting mixed up with
Stephanie (Sheedy), Number 5 begins to become more and
more human. Can Stephanie convince the makers that
Number 5 is alive before a re-format?
