Actually, one of the best (in terms of sillyness) was this movie called
DemonSeed where this super-computer becomes sentient, kills its creator,
then creates a metallic penis (I am NOT making this up) that it uses to
impregnant the creator's wife, whom he is holding captive. She has a 30
day (or so) gestation period and gives birth to the computer's child who
grows up to around age 8 or so in about 3 days. I forget what happens
after that. I think the kid just babbles about some philosophical crap
and the movie ends. I recommend it.
