Robots may one day rise up and destroy mankind, but if it does happen at least we’ll have a few good robot buddies on our side.

Jinx from Space Camp
OK…so maybe Jinx sort of gets Max into a bit of a bind by getting the kid launched into space when the shuttle isn’t ready. I’ll concede that point. But the sentient robot Jinx is exactly the kind of robot you’d want to be a pal. He really listens to you and does what he can to help. Unfortunately he’s a robot and is incapable of weighing the possible issues an action could cause. But he comes through. Max wants to go to space, so Jinx puts Max into space. Max needs to be saved, so Jinx helps ground control to bring him home safe. SpaceCamp is one of those “you had to grow up with it” films, and that certainly shows if watched today. He may not be able to blow shit up with laser rockets, but Jinx will make it his mission to get you whatever you desire. That’s the mark of a great robot friend.
