Professor Phillip Brainard, an absent-minded professor, works with his assistant Weebo, trying to create a substance that's a new source of energy and that will save Medfield College where his sweetheart Sara is the president. He has missed his wedding twice, and on the afternoon of his third wedding, Professor Brainard creates flubber, which allows objects to fly through the air. It looks like rubber, so he calls it flubber. This film is based on the 1961 Disney classic, "The Absent-Minded Professor. Written by

Midway through the film, the scene after Philip comes back home in his flying car and is talking to weebo in his kitchen and telling her how much he loves Sara and weebo is recording it. At some point while Philip is standing up in that scene you can see it's daylight out the window but he has just got back in from the outside being night time, further more to prove it should have been night time outside, he turns off the light to go to sleep and weebo flies outside to go to Sara's home.

I admire Robin Williams.His quick,improvisational humor make him the most unique entertainer of our time.However,he does from time to time make bad choices,and Flubber was indeed a bad one,at least scriptwise.This movie's problem is not from bad performances,but from terrible writing,and that often makes the performers look bad.The intentions here are good,but the movie just fell flat in all aspects.If you want to see a movie about flubber,I would highly suggest "The Absent Minded Professor".It's a classic and it's much better.
