It’s an odd premise, especially for anyone who ever purchased Windows Vista, but somehow writer/director Spike Jonze (Being John Malkovich) was able to turn this idea into Her, one of the best sci-fi movies of the year and a thought-provoking commentary on love and human relationships in the time of technology.
There’s a good film somewhere in “The Truth About Emanuel,” but unfortunately, you won’t find it in this muddled hour-and-a-half of tired movie tropes and big ideas gone haywire.

A smile — one of those tiny side smirks that causes a cheek to abut against the bottom of the eye — creeps onto your face when remembering all of the gadgets and gizmos held within the toy closet at Cardon Children’s Medical Center.
