The commercials for this movie looked AWFUL, and this appeared like another sub-par Pixar lite flick. Glad to see it's got some substance - maybe the kids will be interested after all.

This is an OK movie, but I wouldn't say it's great. I enjoyed it, and it's a little better than most kiddie movies with some nice odd humor bits (wait until you see BHG's evil lair), but it's also really shrill, mile-a-minute stuff, with hardly a moment for depth or character amidst all the action and wacky family members. It isn't nearly as funny as it should be for all the energy its exerting. But it was a lot better than I was expecting and the 3-D is great if you can see it.

This film was incredibly suprising and one of the few computer animated flicks that seems to actually be designed to use Digital 3D. Check out our review @ http://www.moviepulse.net/Pages/Theatrical/page_meettherobinsons.htm

the 3-D trailer before 'Nightmare' looked pretty damn cool, and I too laugh at the T-Rex portion of the current trailer. This weeks Little Miss Sunshine?

are good to hear. I was really in the dark on this one. The trailers made it look bland and forgettable, almost crappy even. I've been burned by Disney before, looking at you Chicken Little, which I actually fell asleep in. My son wants to see this, wife sounded semi interested and its actually playin in 3D near us (Chicken Little did not) but the endorsements in this thread have sold me on seeing in the theater rather than wait for dvd. Nice to know Disney can actually do something decent without Pixar.

I looked over and Kurt Russell was laughing, so I guess it was okay.

I aint no david Attenborough but i can tell a plant when i see one. This film is gonna be bad. i've seen the trailers and i know the synopsis, people. its another chicken little. but on a grander scale. i'm so disapointed in disney. where are the lion kings? where are the beauty & the beasts? where are the aladdins? its like disney are attempting to relive the glory days of 'oliver & company' and 'robin hood'. remember the classics diney not the crap-cics!

First -- a BOY movie. YES! Next one that looks to be funny,not an overdramatic action flick a la Tarzan/Atlantis. Keep um coming Disney. Anybody catch the Classic Disney throwback from BHG?

'A Day in the life of Wilbur Robinson,' or whatever it's called. Has the same characters in it. I agree, the trailer didn't get my hopes up, but the reviews are turning out good. And I looked over and Kurt Russell was... oh, never mind.

The book is utterly chamring and the kids where I teach love it. Between this, Bridge, and Narnia Disney is on a kidlit roll. I'm going to have to catch this one.

That is a hell of a backstory they have built for the guy...

His name is Wilbur. If you're going to praise a terrible movie, please do it with all the facts in check.

Much better than Chicken Little. The movie starts out like "huh?" but then really really takes off, and I love the ending. Great job.
