Movie Review: Meet the Robinsons

"Around here, however, we don't look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things...and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths."
Walt Disney

We took the family to see "Meet the Robinsons" on Saturday, and although the wife would say I have always said this about new movies, this is the best Disney computer-animated movie yet. Instead of the normal family-friendly kid fare these days, with often contrasting themes like "be yourself" or "everyone needs a family", the theme for this movie is focused on letting the past go and just keep moving forward. It's got a neat plot that has twists for both kids and adults, and lots to laugh at. There is some scariness for younger kids at the end as the bad guy gets the upper hand for awhile (my 6 year old didn't want to watch that part), so keep that in mind. But altogether a great flick!
