Bicentennial Man

Robin Williams stars in this overblown sci-fi/comedy/drama/romance/etc. about a robot, resembling a man, that shorts out one day and mysteriously begins to display human-like characteristics and feelings. Unlike other robots, this one (called Andrew), wants to actually become a human. Progressively, after 200 years, he goes through numerous human implants and begins to look just like one. So, now all he has to do is to go to court and to achieve humanity leagally. Bicentennial Man is too long, and it's rather annoying to have everything in the film change around every fifteen minutes as the 200 years passes. There are some sparks of enjoyment, but overall, forget it. Based on the Issac Asimov short story 'Posatronic Man'.
