Critics Consensus

With its overactive focus on special effects and tiresome slapstick, Flubber sqaunders the immense talent of its cast and crew.

Audience Reviews for Flubber

    I've recently watched this movie when I was a little kid at the 90s, but given the horrible reception in this film, I now hate it as a young adult. Robin William's performance, Danny Elfman's good music score and the spectacular special effects doesn't save this movie from it's unfunny humor, a totally rehashed story of a 1960s film, forgettable characters, and the late John Hughes' pathetic script. My words to you guys is: If someone has great directing skills and Disney had a chance to remake The Absent Minded Professor again, please get Steven Spielberg to did it only if you're ready to make a better script with better humor and better characters. 3.4/10
