The Absent-Minded Professor

The Absent-Minded Professor-1961, starring Fred MacMurray

He says-  MacMurray discovers flubber (flying rubber) in this Disney audience-pleaser, but no one will believe him except Kennan Wynn, who tries to steal the substance.  Broad comedy and bright special effects make this a lot of fun.  3 stars.

I say-  Perhaps it's because the Robin Williams version was so bad, but I couldn't get into this.  I know Hollywood likes to remake everything, but sometimes the new version ruins the old one.  I thought the special effects were creative, the story was predictable, and the main character was unlikable.  I mean, seriously, who misses their wedding day for a third time?  1 and a half stars.
