A new twist on an old idea

Since Disney released the Swiss Family Robinson in 1960, Hollywood has intermittently released adventure movies based on a Robinson family whose members are intellectually gifted, though sometimes lacking emotionally satisfying family lives. The latest version of this is Meet the Robinsons, Disney's other cartoon release of 2007, the primary one being Ratatouille. Highly promoted on TV and in the theaters, it did not do well at the box office.

Watching this movie, one realizes it is not a normal cartoon. First of, it is not very funny. There are occasional funny scenes, but there are too many ridiculous scenes that were too stupid to be funny; many of them include the villian of the story, the guy in the Bowler hat. Another striking departure from standard Disney fare is the lack of a memorable song or soundtrack. Its as if the moviemakers did not even try to include a great song. Probably the biggest difference between this and other Disney cartoons is the absolute lack of a big name actor or actress. Once you set aside these omissions, the movie is actually OK. The plot is original, though not quite innovative. The characters are unique, though none are memorable. The meaning behind the movie is good, and its happy ending was probably the best part of it. So in conclusion, it is worth watching on TV, though not good enough to buy.
