My Life as a Teenage Robot: The Movie is an American-Canadian live action-computer animated comedy science fiction film based on the Nickelodeon series of the same name. It was the first film ever released by Viacom's MTNick Pictures label.

Synopsis

Jenny "XJ-9" Wakeman (Ciara Baxton), an adolescent-like robot built to be protector of the Earth, comes into contact with two human teenagers, Brad and Tuck Carbunkle, and begins to know what life is like outside of her overprotective mother and creator, Noreen Wakeman's (Karol Smythe) home. However, the fun is short-lived when Vexus, leader of an alien race known as the Cluster, plans on taking over the world, and Jenny must stop Vexus's plans before it is too late.

Plot

In the distant future, two brothers, Brad and Tuck Carbunkle, are leaving their schools on the first day of summer break, and begin by playing Baseball together. However, Tuck hits the ball into their neighbor, Noreen Wakeman's home, and Brad sends him out to get it. While inside, Tuck encounters a robot, late revealed to be XJ-9, Tuck runs out of the house afraid and trips on a staircase. XJ-9, or Jenny Wakeman's creator, walks into her room explaining the rules and claiming that her existence should not be known by any humans, including Teenagers. Jenny, however, doesn't comply to most of the rules and prefers to fit in like every teenager in the city, her mother understands, and leaves her to her own devices. Later that night, however, Brad sneaks into Jenny's room through the window and is caught by her, surprised to have met a real human teenager, they instantly become friends and share many things in common like the music they listen to, their social network status, and how they prefer to have real friends.

The next day, Brad sneaks into Jenny's room in the morning again and asks if they want to hang out. Jenny checks the Crisis Control Centre for any major trouble, and the monitors say that there will be no trouble for the next eight hours. Later, they decide to go to the mall, but Jenny, however, claims that her mom told her not to make any contact with the human population. Brad helps her out by giving her a disguise and a wig to fit in, along with opening her own checking account. After having a lot of fun in the mall however, they decide to go to one more place in the mall, the arcade. Jenny's wig however, is flown off the screen while playing a dancing game. Scared, she flies out of the building, not knowing the many people cheering her on because she is a robot. However, while sitting in shame on top of a building, she notices a ship approaching and flies off towards it. In space, while examining the ship, she discovers an alien robot race known as the Cluster, who are planning to take over the Earth, and is captured by one of the guards.

She wakes up in a cell locked in electric cuffs, and on a monitor, she meets Vexus, queen and leader of the Cluster, who reminds her that in three hours, the Cluster will take over Earth, and she will stay imprisoned during that time with Tuck, who inadvertently stowed off on Jenny's rocket propellers while he was trying to apologize to her earlier. Jenny breaks free from her cuffs using her lasers, along with Tuck, Tuck apologizes to Jenny about assuming her to be a "hideous bloodthirsty robot", and Jenny forgives her. While making her escape, however, she is caught by Vexus, only to escape through the window and fight all around Tremorton, with the mayor, Dean Richardson (Daryl Keith Roach) and everyone in the city witnessing the battle. Just when Jenny is about to be defeated by Vexus, encouragement from Brad and Tuck helps her regain his strength and punch Vexus into her ship back in space, taking out the central core and defeating Vexus and the Cluster.

The people in Tremorton cheer Jenny on for her heroics, including Tuck. The fun however, is deemed short-lived when Nora Wakeman, having found out about Jenny's recent activities, is angry at her and claims that she will wipe everyone's memory of her existence and dismantle her permanently. However, Dean intervenes after he recognizes Nora from one of her front-cover magazine appearances, and realizes that XJ-9 is one of her creations. The rest of the people who have encountered her claim that she has done nice things to them at the mall, and when her disguise was taken off, they cheered her on. Nora, realizing what Dean means, apologizes to XJ-9 and claims that she was afraid no one would accept her for who she is. Jenny is later praised as a hero to the world and is given official human rights like the ability to go to school. 5 ½ months later, at Tremorton High School, Brad comes to Jenny's locker and praises her for what she has done over the past 5 ½ months, while the Crust cousins, Brit and Tiffany, claim that she's nothing but a hunk of metal who just had beginner hero's luck. During class, a giant spider-like creature attacks the class, and Jenny is prepared to defeat it.

In a mid-credits scene, it is revealed that Vexus and the Cluster survived the crash and have deemed XJ-9 public enemy number one on Cluster Prime, with Vexus vowing revenge on her one day.
