    Is It Goo Or Is It Flubber?

    Professor Phillip Brainard (Robin Williams) is a genius lost in thought. He appears, at times, not to pay attention. He's even forgotten two dates to marry his sweetheart Sara (Marcia Gay Harden). But then he has a lot on his mind. He's working with his high-voltage, humorous flying robot assistant, WEEBO, on an idea for a substance that is a revolutionary new source of energy. This invention may also save Medfield College from bankruptcy. He has another incentive, because Sara, his fiancé is the president of Medfield. Late on the afternoon of his third attempt at a wedding, all of Professor Brainerd’s hard work in the lab comes together. He creates miraculous goo. When applied to any object - cars, bowling balls, even people -this goo enables them to fly through the air at remarkable speeds. The stuff defies gravity and looks like rubber. What is it? Flubber! While watching this movie I really enjoyed it. It was very funny and adventurous. If I had something like Flubber I would use it to get to school everyday if I just so happen to be running late. I really don't know what the Flubber was made of but it had to be cool at times. I would recommend this movie to anyone that would like to laugh. This is a family-fun filled movie and should be watched if you have not seen yet.

    Time To Jump Up

    Forgetful Professor Phillip Brainard inadvertently creates ''flying rubber'' in his lab, misses his wedding date repeatedly, and is menaced by bungling goons hired by a jealous rival out to steal his lady and his invention. Producer and co-screenwriter John Hughes renders the Disney classic, ''The Absent-Minded Professor'' for the digital-effects crowd, dusting it with the slapstick hyperbole of his ''Home Alone'' films and ''modern'' touches like Brainard's sassy floating personal robot, Weebo. Meanwhile, the flubber itself takes on a life of its own, executing a musical production number.
