Movie Info

Disney comedy about a professor who invents a revolutionary flying rubber, which he dubs "flubber". Not only does the professor's Model T Ford fly through the air with the greatest of ease, but his secret weapon helps the college basketball team to victory, thanks to flubber-enhanced boots, but while his long-suffering girlfriend tries to win the professor's heart, crooks are trying to steal his formula.

    Full of charm and hard to dislike.

    I liked this movie a lot compared to the remake with Robin Williams. This movie is cool, funny, and exciting. I really liked it and I recommend it over the new one.

    I haven't seen this since I was a kid but I remember liking it a lot.

    This is a fun film for it's time. A live action Disney film about a professor who invents something called flubber. This invention gets him into a adventure. A fun film with some funny moments. I enjoyed it when I was a child. A good film for the kids or the family to watch.
