    The movie is not so bad .. but we must recognize that it is fun.

    Just a kids flick, filled with both a childish storyline and childish acting. If your a kid, Flubber satisfies. But adults should beware. One of Robin Williams' weaker films.

    Although the film can't compare to the original, it does have its charms. Robin Williams is amusing but animating the flubber and giving it life was a mistake. Good special effects, imaginative. The musical number with Flubber is a complete miss.

    Although the movie may appeal to kids in the lower grades, it's pretty slow, flat and dumb.

    Remember when John Hughes made small, original, oh say, GOOD movies?

    In fact, there are times when this movie feels like the latest installment in the over-milked Home Alone saga.
