This is a pretty underrated flick, in my opinion. It's a little bit like "Back to the Future," but only in the time traveling and continuity aspects. It centers on an absent-minded braniac named Lewis who has an incredible love for science. However, an evil man tries to foil his inventive efforts, and a young teen tries to encounter him as well.

It's not the most memorable of plot lines, and there are definitely some moments when Disney just can't help but be Disney as far as plot points (it seems to do that when it CGI's without Pixar. That said, there is plenty of creativity and zany to go around, along with more serious and good lessons for people of all ages. Great movie for the family to watch. 5 Stars.

It's an okay movie, and the premise is nice, but I don't think it is realized well enough, and the movie goes way overboard with their villain design.

Funny, entertaining, with a positive message! The whole family enjoyed it (tween, teen, adults)!

This has become my favorite pixar movie. I have not watched the DVD yet, but I saw it on Tv. The reason this is my favorite pixar is because of the way it shows and motivates people to "Keep moving forward". In other words,by never giving up your dream through practice , study, and believing in yourself that you can do it. This movie also inspired me <3 !

My favorite Pixar movie by far. It's message of "Keep Moving Forward" has multiple meanings - see clip of Walt Disney's comments at the end, and it has a positive "growth" message instead of a stunting "protection" message. There are moments that are just transcendent - Lewis in the conservatory at the end. As a bonus, it has one of my top 5 movie songs of all time "Little Wonders".

Bowler Hat Guy (referring to Lewis): "Oh! I know! I'll turn him into a duck! Ah, yes, it's so evil!! Wait, I don't know how to do that."

Lewis (Bud?): "Why is your dog wearing glasses?" Bud (?): "Oh. Cause his insurance won't pay for contacts."

Wilbur (to Lewis): "If my parents find out that I brought you from the past, they'll bury me alive and dance on my grave. I'm not exaggerating! Well, yes I am."

The main character, Luis is an Orphan whose only dream is to find a family because he's the only one nobody takes only because of his weird inventions. However, soon he meets Wilbur, his son in the future where Wilbur warns his father , which is Luis by the way, in order to let him know about what's happening in the this case, Luis and Wilbur rides in a time machine ( Luis's invention, he created a lot of technology ) into the future. From the moment on, he goes into his future family's house ( the Robinsons) but meets them in disguise( Wilbur puts Luis a fruit hat so that nobody will recognize him as Luis in the past)...if they did, Wilbur wouldve gotten in trouble for bringing him from the present. The Robinsons all have a robot, singing frogs, and LOL guess who the wife is? a girl he meets in the science fair! Anyways, the problem in the future is that his antagonist, good aka bowler hat guy is trying to mess up Luis's life all because he crushed Goob's dream of catching the ball during his baseball game. In the should watch I think I gave enough details ^_^
