Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this movie has mild nudity (Professor Brainard stumbles into a life-drawing class), mild profanity (almost inaudible), a sad scene where a beloved robot "dies" and dubious ethics -- the film never confront issues of cheating and solving problems with violence.
What's the story?
FLUBBER tells the story of the stereotypical absent-minded Professor Philip Brainard (Robin Williams) who stumbles upon a formula for a mysterious substance that can bounce, stretch, fly. In the process he loses his fiancee (Marcia Gay Harden), the president of a college in financial trouble. Professor Brainard fights to win back his fiancee and fund the school.
Is it any good?
Overall this is a fun and entertaining movie -- there's lots for kids to enjoy.
