What might have been a bland Back to the Future rip-off suddenly hums with a screwball sensibility chockablock with singing gangster frogs and evil bowler hats.

Whether you see this loony, feel-good comedy in 3-D or in regular vision, it's a lot of fun.

The first 20 minutes of this competently animated kids' adventure are entertaining enough. But thereafter, the plot fractures, the pace goes into overdrive and the jokes wear thin.

There's no doubt Disney will do it again, and perhaps better next time, but for now, it looks like technology could be its creative salvation.

Meet the Robinsons is surely one of the worst theatrically released animated features issued under the Disney label in quite some time.

A fast paced, high energy offering; it passes by in a breeze and is enjoyable enough that I'm willing to forgive the two awful songs (one near the beginning, one near the end) and recommend it.

Meet the Robinson tasted like chicken - Chicken Little, that is.

Flashes of wit and whimsy notwithstanding, the future is just as sentimentalized as the past.

A baby being left on the doorstep of an orphanage has been done many times, yet Meet the Robinsons makes it feel new again, and not just because of the fantastic 3-D technology.

...the movie possesses an unusually bright and colorful sense of style that immediately sets it apart from its increasingly plentiful brethren.

Pleasant but insubstantial, and with characters whose eccentricities feel just a tad forced and artificial, this is a mild diversion of a film.

Despite its obvious shortcomings, Meet the Robinsons left me wanting a little more. It's been a long, long time since a Disney film without a little lamp logo at the beginning has made me feel that way.

A film of terribly alienating character design (so many pinchy faces and tiny eyes!) blended with very plastic-y backgrounds.

The film has a freewheeling, quick-hit absurdism closer to Airplane! than Aladdin.

This shrine to Disney is really the world's most overstuffed Hanna-Barbera cartoon, right down to its Gargamel-patterned villain.

Prone to migraine headaches, I wish the frenzied pace of 'Meet the Robinsons' had been toned down. Still, youngsters will probably love the ride.

The animation strives for 1950s sci-fi retro, but the result is that everyone looks like a plastic animé doll.

Audience Reviews for Meet the Robinsons

Considering it's a Disney movie that always have their bar set high the second you realise the animation in Meet the Robinsons is amazing you are at the same time realising that the stroy is boring. You are absolutely correct. A fantastic example of how modern disney films are destryoing the once legendary empire. Apart from the animation and a considerable amount of animation it is weird, forgettable and just plain bad.

I quite liked 'Meet the Robinsons'. It wasn't a classic, memorable, or perfect film, but it was indeed a very good children's film. I will admit, there are times where it is a little too cute for itself, but it is made up by fine animation, as well as a witty script which all make this an acceptable yet forgettable film.
