Natural Language Processing in the Movies

In Volume 13 Issue 390 of the Linguist List (Tuesday 12th February 2002), I posted a query asking for pointers to portrayals of natural language processing in movies, to which I received 13 responses. Posting a summary of those replies to the list provoked yet more responses. A complete list of people's suggestions and comments is below, listed alphabetically by movie title. There's also a page of related links to stuff like information on AI in the movies.

If you have additional suggestions I'd be very pleased to receive them: just send an email to, and I'll incorporate your suggestion into this list. If you'd prefer to remain anonymous, just let me know. A great big thanks to everyone who has contributed so far.
