FLUBBER (Theatrical Release USA1997)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.2|5.0 Stars ìììì

Flubber—a terrific Robin Williams film produced by Disney­—comically tells its story with Christopher McDonald as the perfect pick for the antagonist to the character Robin Williams portrays.

Storyline

Forgetful Professor Philip Brainard (Robin Williams) plans to marry Dr. Sara Jean Reynolds (Marcia Gay Harden); but, as a workaholic and able scientist, he forgets the day, works though his wedding day, and invents/perfects a green rubber substance that will be among the great inventions of the day. Because this is not the first time he has missed his wedding day, his fiancé becomes unforgiving and gives in to the temptations of Wilson Croft (Christopher McDonald) and his ready proposal of marriage. Professor Brainard’s task becomes: win back his fiancée, save the local school from bankruptcy, and reveal his invention to the world.

Additional Thanks

Great Work for Director Les Mayfield. Thank you to Executive Producers David Nicksay and Bill Ryan for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Wesson (Ted Levine), Smith (Clancy Brown), Chester Hoenicker (Raymond J. Barry), Bennett Hoenicker (Wil Wheaton), Martha George (Edie McClurg), and Weebo (voice of Jodi Benson).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. This is among the best of clean entertainment that can be enjoyed by the child and adult alike. It’s well-acted, fun, and worth a watch.
