This is the first family film to come out since Pixar took creative control over at Disney, and it's an unexpected treat. At first, while watching it, everything seemed a little too generic. The characters seemed fairly broad, the plot (an orphan looking for someone to call family) a bit predictable, and the animation somewhat standard. And while some of the story is, for sure, nothing new, the movie begins to pick up when it jets into the future, and the last thirty minutes bring everything together in unexpectedly original, poignant, and emotional fashion. Total cynics may be unmoved, but otherwise, kids and families will find a lot to like in this colorful tale.

I gave up about 30 minutes into the movie. Boring, dumb, unappealing in just about every way. Maybe it picked up and redeemed itself but I wasn't going to waste any more of my time finding outl

"Meet the Robinsons" was a nice film with lots of laughs, an intriguing plot, and a meaningful message. The film follows Lewis, a pre-teenager at an orphanage. He attempts to remember his birth mother, but when his device is stolen by the evil Bowler Hat Guy, Wilbur Robinson, a boy from the future takes him roughly 30 years into the future. Lewis grows to love the Robinson family. This movie is a treat for the young and old alike, that will make you laugh and think about the true meaning of a family.

Good movie, especially for kids, but with a good moral message. I am not a big cartoon fan, but did enjoy the message and particularly the lack of any sleazy undertones.
