Meet the Robinsons
Review - Meet the Robinsons (2007)
Lewis (Daniel Hansen) was always a smart kid, but he could never seem to get things right, especially when it came to being adopted. When a boy from the future takes him home, he starts to learn about both his past and his future in “Meet the Robinsons.”
The Walt Disney Company has had a very strange history. They’ve had great success and utter failure, and unfortunately we were recently in a slump of the latter, but this movie is a great sign of a wonderful future for the company (no pun intended). The writing hasn’t been this good since “The Emporer’s New Groove,” and it’s even better than that.
Other than the acting, the only problem I had with the movie was that it looked like they were jealous of Pixar, thus they came up with this. I know the two are partnered or something right now, and John Lasseter is the head of the art department, but it really looked like they were trying hard to be Pixar, even though the movie starts with a new logo for the Walt Disney Animation Studios.
In the end, “Meet the Robinsons” is both funny and smart, and a real breath of fresh air after “Chicken Little.” You can enjoy this one with the kids.
Final Score: 7.8/10
