Based on William Joyce's book "A Day With Wilbur Robinson," which finds young science geek Lewis despairing of ever being adopted. But his luck changes thanks to teenager Wilbur Robinson and his time machine. Wilbur takes Lewis into the future to meet his eccentric family, but everyone's dreams are threatened by the sinister man in the bowler hat, who's got it out for Lewis. The jovial T-Rex, who's meant to aid the bad guy, is a scene-stealer. Hyperactive animated comedy is the first release by Disney in its Digital 3-D process.

Geez, this is for kids? The dinosaur might have a "big head and little arms," but this movie has little appeal and a huge plot. The action took a long time to develop, so plan a snack and a few break times during this one! Watchable, but not a total winner.
