Meet the Robinsons is an excellent picture, not just for children, but for the entire family. Disney never fails to amaze me with their animated films that are geared for the entire family. I took my little brother to see this movie because that is all he talked about for the past three months after the previews being shown with a dinosaur in it. I was really impressed, although he wasn’t because the dinosaur only had a small role.
The movie is formed around a young orphan who just so happens to be an inventor. He keeps being rejected by possible parents, so he does the one thing he knows to do, Invent the machine to find his real parents. He decides on a memory device to help him remember his mother. Upon creating the device, a child from the future comes back to warn him what is to come, and the device is stolen and rushed off to the future. The young inventor saves the day, of course, and ultimately finds a family in a classic happily ever after ending.
Amazingly for a children’s movie, Meet the Robinsons was a very involved flick that keeps you paying attention. One feature of this flick that will set it apart from the rest is the Mickey Mouse feature cartoon that is played before the movie. I was glad to see Mickey, Donald, and Goofy on the big screen again.
