Disney has struck once again, taking a passably entertaining cartoon and turning it into a motion picture so lifeless that it's almost unwatchable.

Inspector Gadget tries so hard to be funny, aiming alternately at kids and their parents, that it misses on all counts.

Maybe the Saturday morning set will love it, but adults can expect a go go Gadget migraine.

The movie feels like a demonstration reel for toys, action figures and future DisneyQuest installations.

A scrap heap of jokes and sight gags lifted from half a dozen super-sleuth spoofs.

The appeal of this movie is in the gadgets; the script again takes a back seat to special effects.

The plot really is a Playskool version of 'Robocop' combined with 'The Six Million Dollar Man,' and it's not even a good rendition.

The one-joke movie consists of having Inspector Gadget, a kid's version of RoboCop, demonstrating all of his hardware.
