Review by Curtis Strickland (12/97)

Release: 1997, Buena Vista
Starring: Robin Williams and a bunch of digitally generated green goo
Director: Les Mayfield
MPAA Rating: [PG] violence, language
Genre: Family/Comedy


On the eve of his impending wedding, Professor Philip Brainard (Williams) invents a miraculous substance that liberates more energy than it absorbs on a dramatic scale (i.e. it bounces around a lot). A bunch of people are out to gain control of the substance at whatever the cost. Based on the classic Disney film The Absent Minded Professor, starring Fred MacMurray.


Nice, clean family fun. A decent movie to take the kids to see.


Those of us old enough to remember the original will wonder at what point flubber became sentient--the green goo takes on a life and personality of its own to exploit computer generated special effects. The silly substance covers up a bland story with an uninteresting source of conflict. The antics of the flubber also overshadow underwhelming performances from the human cast.

Rating: 4.5 out of 10 (0=Abysmal, 5=Average, 10=Excellent)
