You've got to love the USA Network. Whether it's a mystery starring Pamela Anderson as an evil twin or a horror story about killer kitty-cats, this cable channel is the place to turn to for wacky so-bad-they're-good TV movies. Which is what is so disappointing about this teleflick. The premise sounds promisingly cheesy: a cold fish of a doctor (Harley Jane Kozak) falls for a fun-loving android (Griffin Dunne) who teaches her to be more human.
Too bad this concept is played for drama instead of laughs. By the time The Android Affair turns into a chase movie with our heroes on the run from evil scientists, it's almost funny how seriously this movie takes itself.
