Flubber (26-Nov-1997)

Director: Les Mayfield

Writers: John Hughes; Bill Walsh

From short story: A Situation of Gravity by Samuel W. Taylor

Music by: Danny Elfman

Producers: John Hughes; Richardo Mestres

Keywords: Sci-Fi/Comedy, Flubber

Absent-minded professor invents a new form of flying rubber, in this remake of The Absent Minded Professor (1961). This time the flubber is anthropomorphic and playful. A lot of money was spent on CGI, but the atrocious script brings the movie down and Robin Williams falls totally flat. Watch the original.
