A Decent Film That Could Do Better
Verified purchase
I'll admit right off the back that "I like this film", though I think my enjoyment can be largely atributed to the fact that I like Robin Williams and Jodi Benson. I also do like Marcia Gay Harden, but my dog and cat have better chemistry then she did with Robin Williams. I mean, both are good actors and have shown it in other works and it was obvious that they were trying, but sometimes, it just doesn't work. I also wonder why Disney had what seemed to be a 1990s sports film (basketball) right in the middle of this film, complete with the cheesey inspirational music, the underdog team, and everything else. But despite these and other faults, this is a sweet film. If I had to change just one thing about it, I'd want to give Ted Levine and Clancy Brown a lot more screen time. I really like both men and I believe their talents were massively underused here. But again, for all its problems and exagerated highjinks, I reccomend this film for children and any adult who wants to ease themselves back into the Disney viewing experience. Enjoy.

Non-Anamorphic Widescreen
Verified purchase
Beware before purchasing the Flubber DVD: the film is presented in a 1.85:1 Widescreen aspect ratio -BUT- it is a non-anamorphic widescreen presentation. So there will be black bars on the side of the screen along with the top and bottom of the screen.
So, not the best picture and not a single special feature, but if you can get it for under $5 it’s not a bad deal.

I like Robin Williams and is fun style
Verified purchase
Cute story. We picked it mostly for the kids on family movie night. I like Robin Williams and is fun style. I had forgotten about the robot creating the ghostly projection of a real body so she could express her love for Robin's charter. That was a bit uncomfortable to watch with out 6&8 year olds. There were a few more parts that seemed a little bit mature for them like when the robot is killed. Over all it was cute and mostly family friendly. It is hard to find movies for this age that don't have some little something that I wish we could cut out.

Dumb with a bit of touching
Verified purchase
Robin Williams is one of my all time favorite comedians. I've watched a half dozen of the films staring him, repeatedly. Guaranteed to laugh out loud just as much if not more each viewing. This one was entertaining for a few minutes. I kept looking to see how much left to endure. Never thought I'd say it of a Robin Williams film, but it was poor. Recommend you give it a pass.

Ten year old thought it was hilarious and no objectionable material
Verified purchase
I think it is so hard to find movies that don't have objectionable material in them that are still exciting enough for pre-teens. My ten year old thought this was very funny and engaging. He showed it to his eight year old sister and they watched it again so we are glad we got it. Overall pleased.

Great family movie and good for slime loving kids
Verified purchase
I had movie when I was young and loved it. My 6 yr old is BIG into slime so I told her I could show her a movie with slime that's alive. Lol I know it's not slime but she was convinced and watched 5 times in 2 days. It's good for kids especially the slime lovers

A rarity indeed. A worthy remake.
Verified purchase
Not a box office smash, but who cares? Robin Williams was brilliant at playing an absent minded genius. It blended his comedic and dramatic sides into a character that we can all relate to in some way.

Robin Williams classic, must watch
Verified purchase
Got it to show our girls and they loved it. This is a Robin Williams classic that I personally think everyone should see at some point in their life. Lots of fun to watch.
