Consensus: Meet the Robinsons is a visually impressive children's animated film marked by a story of considerable depth.

What might have been a bland Back to the Future rip-off suddenly hums with a screwball sensibility chockablock with singing gangster frogs and evil bowler hats.

There's no doubt Disney will do it again, and perhaps better next time, but for now, it looks like technology could be its creative salvation.

Meet the Robinson tasted like chicken - Chicken Little, that is.

Whether you see this loony, feel-good comedy in 3-D or in regular vision, it's a lot of fun.

Meet the Robinsons is surely one of the worst theatrically released animated features issued under the Disney label in quite some time.

Tom Meek
Boston Phoenix

A fast paced, high energy offering; it passes by in a breeze and is enjoyable enough that I'm willing to forgive the two awful songs (one near the beginning, one near the end) and recommend it.

The Scorecard Review

A baby being left on the doorstep of an orphanage has been done many times, yet Meet the Robinsons makes it feel new again, and not just because of the fantastic 3-D technology.
