MEET THE ROBINSONS (Theatrical Release USA 2007)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.7|5.0 Starsììì

Meet the Robinsons
turns into a fair to middling animated feature despite its less than original storyline and choppy presentation. It takes a while to figure out who the characters are and how they are related, but the voices are great and the characters are well developed with interesting personalities that will be appreciated by adults and children.

Lewis Robinson (voices of Daniel Hansen and Jordan Fry) needs a family to adopt him, but his proclivity toward inventing things that malfunction scares away prospective parents. He finds help from his time-traveling, future son Wilbur (voice of Wesley Singerman) and rectifies a few wrongs in the process.
