4.0 out of 5 stars An OOOOLLLDDD favorite! January 7, 2010
Verified Purchase
This is probably my favorite Disney live-action comedy. It was done during a period when Disney used Fred Mac Murray for just about every adult male lead role they could find, and here, he was used beautifully! The writing, early sixties special effects, B&W cinematography and casting was absolutely perfect for this family confection. First of all, there's Mac Murray himself....that goofy speech pattern of his that says perpetually befuddled, but the basic cleverness that gets him out of his inevitable fixes...the affability that only he could muster, made him the perfect Ned Brainard. The smarmy, effete-looking Eliot Reid made a PERFECT romantic rival...the kind of guy the audience LOVED to hate! The not-too-severe looking Nancy Olsen as the object of Ned's affections, the woman he's jilted THREE TIMES at the altar...!? Perfect! Then there's that flying Model T!!

But the highlight of this film, beside the scenes of Ned flying his flubber-driven-flivver, is the basketball game that Ned helps his college team win by slapping flubber on the players' sneakers. This has to be one of the most golden slapstick comedy sequences of all time, as good as ANYTHING by Mack Sennett or Buster Keaton, and right up there with Chaplin's playing with the inflatable globe in "The Great Dictator"! I have always loved this movie, and the sequel, "Son of Flubber", while nowhere near as good as the original, has ONE funny sequence where Flubber goes commercial and is advertised as a floor covering, and a couple drops their baby on it, having it bounce back in their arms unharmed and amused instead of injured. Unfortunately, that's probably the only scene you'll remember from it, but it DOES complete the duo. Get "Absent Minded" alone or both, depending on how big a Disney fan you are. I can't recommend the original enough!

2.0 out of 5 stars Son of Flubber needs a little stretching! March 13, 2009
It's nice to see a fair priced 2-disc set of these Disney favorites. However, they still didn't get Son Of Flubber right! It should be widescreen, not full screen. Is anybody at Disney listening?

3.0 out of 5 stars Absent Minded indeed February 11, 2013
Verified Purchase
One criticism which you may think I am crazy for, I liked the movie better in re-colorized. But the first movie was decent. I would give it 3 and 1/2 stars. The second movie, the plot is so bizarre I don't really get it. So I give it 2 stars, it's a poor quality movie. They blew the story so far out there that the plot was confusing. I held out to get both movies in one, had I known Son Of Flubber not so good, I would have paid a little less for just the first movie.
