IMDb profile

Smart House is a Disney Channel Original Movie about a young computer whiz (Ryan Merriman), his widowed father, and his little sister, who win a computerized house that begins to take on a life of its own — the life of an overbearing mother (Katey Sagal).

Plot summary

Meet the average American family, the Coopers: Nick Cooper, the father of the family and a widower; Angie Cooper, the so-called "annoying" younger sister; and Ben, the older tech-savy brother who takes care of the family after his mother dies. The Coopers win a "House of the Future" complete with a virtual housemaid codenamed "PAT" (Acronym: Personal Applied Technology). The PAT AI is great for house maintenance, throwing massive parties and making sure the family runs smoothly and flawlessly. But when Nick starts going out with Sarah, the person who created the smart house, Ben reprograms the PAT's AI Behavior to act more motherly (and makes her watch 1950's sitcoms), so no one will think that they need a mother. PAT gets far too overprotective, chaotic, and mad, and it's up to Sarah and Ben to work together and defeat a very smart house (controlled by the now-motherly cybermaid) which tries to take over and control what they see and do.


DVD release

The movie was released on DVD as a reward on the Disney Movie Rewards promotional website in early 2008.
