An orphan who dreams of someday finding a family to call his own finds his fate taking an unexpected turn when a mysterious stranger named Wilbur Robinson transports him into the future. Based on the book A Day With Wilbur Robinson by William Joyce, Meet the Robinsons tells the story of a boy with a lifelong wish to belong, and shows what happens when he meets an incredible collection of characters who just might have the power to make his wildest fantasies come true. The film's all-star cast of vocal contributors -- including Angela Bassett, Kelly Ripa, Tom Selleck, Adam West, Steve Zahn, and Laurie Metcalf -- brings the world of the future to life as never before seen on the silver screen. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovimore

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.

Not an absolutely terrible addition to the kiddies animation canon, an orphan is transported to the future in hopes of finding the family he's never had. Only for the kiddies. The writing's flawed, the charaterization weak, the plot predictable. But it's not terrible.

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.
