Meet the Robinsons (2007)
Critic Consensus: Meet the Robinsons is a visually impressive children's animated film marked by a story of considerable depth.
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, Rovi … More

Critic Reviews for Meet the Robinsons
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.
A hilarious and adorable science fiction film with great animation, top notch voice work, and sharp humor...
...the movie possesses an unusually bright and colorful sense of style that immediately sets it apart from its increasingly plentiful brethren.
Audience Reviews for Meet the Robinsons
I liked this movie. Was really fun and my daughter really enjoyed it as well. Decent voice acting, A nice story make this a good film for kids.
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.
