A bumbling professor accidently invents flying rubber, or "Flubber", an incredible material that gains energy every time it strikes a hard surface. It allows for the invention of shoes that can allow jumps of amazing heights and enables a modified Model-T to fly. Unfortunately, no one is interested in the material except for Alonzo Hawk, a corrupt businessman who wants to steal the material for himself.Written by

When the Hawks are chasing Professor Brainard and Betsy, the two policemen are shown approaching the area in their squad car, a 1956 Ford. However, when they arrive on the scene, they are driving a 1960 Ford. See more »
Alonzo P. Hawk:
Hey, you know something? You're all right son. 'Course, you got a little of your mother in you, but actually, well, you're just me all over again.

It has been years since I have seen this movie! I am glad to see that it is still fun and my girls really enjoyed (4 & 6). What was kinda neat was that the Alonzo Hawk character also returns in Herbie Rides Again (same actor, same personality). Small coincidence, because the movie was also directed by Robert Stevenson.
So, if you are looking for a film that will not offend, and offer a few chuckles and will captivate your child's attention, check out The Absent Minded Professor.
Also, IMHO, do not wast time with the Flubber remake.
