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.
