|"I never saw the movie (I guess I'm expected to see sf films, so I'm a little embarrassed). Any additional information would be appreciated."

|"Williams is a family's robot and constantly gets upgraded over the course of several decades, finally gains near human looks and feelings. Falls in love with the grand daughter of his former master, gets the final upgrade that puts his programming into a biological body that can actually age, marries her and they both die of old age, in bed. Oops, my mistake, it's Bicentennial Man
