Its a theme park ride for kids as brainy young Lewis invents a machine that can show your memories on a TV screen. Lewis is an orphan who desparately wants to reconnect with his parents, and the dream machine gives him a glimpse of his mother. But there's trouble brewing. According to this slightly odd older kid named Wilbur Robinson, there's fiendish villain from the future is out to steal Lewis' invention. Wilbur takes Lewis with him back to the future to try to save him and his dream machine.

Disney's latest CGI animated feature is a great relief to fans of animation. If you're a parent, you can always rely on Disney to provide a pretty good show for your kids. But if you're... well... a mature fan like me, you've seen a string of disappointing outings in the last ten years that have included a string of disappointing direct-to-video sequels of the classics, puncuated by the really awful Chicken Little. But "Meet The Robinsons" shows there's still some flicker of creativity left at Disney Feature Animation. Its a poignant story that will truly entertain your entire family.
