Remember ET? Remember how much it sucked? Remember how much Joe
Average loved it? Now, remember how much Joe Average actuallyed
learned about ET? That's right, nothing. So, you can just imagine
what this two letter movie will be like. The only thing that might
come out of AI, the movie, is some little kid seeing it, getting
interested, eventually learning the truth about AI, and helping to
develop a real AI that leads to the Singularity.

Now, take this to Extropians where it might be of interest.
