Movie Info

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

  • 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.

  • Loosely based on a children's book by William Joyce, the film does a lot of twiddling with time.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • This wearisome tale of a lonely orphan who travels through time has a wacky exuberance small children will no doubt appreciate. Anyone older, though, will merely find it noisy and obnoxious.

Audience Reviews for Meet the Robinsons

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.

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.
