This DVD release is very disapointing. Disney has restored the picture so that it looks almost as good as it did when the film came out, but they released it in fullscreen. This is the kind of film that needs to be viewed in it's original widescreen aspect ratio, because there are a lot of newspaper articles and you miss somw of the headlines. It is real frustrating trying to figure out what it says. The special feature is a photo gallery which includes original promotional material, behind the scenes photos, and advertisements for toys.
"Son of Flubber" is sutible for the whole family, but it dosen't have enough to keep the little ones interested.
Flubber becomes a victim of "national security" and our hero Ned Brainerd (MacMurray) returns home empty handed from our nation's capital to find creditors threatening to cancel his newspaper subscription, predators threatening to bulldoze Medfield College, the IRS threatening to ruin his life, and his wife (Nancy Olsen) looking like a million bucks in her new mink coat while holding a check for same for something poor Ned doesnt own anymore and cant sell so that we can all enjoy the wonders of Flubberoleum and can safely drop our children on the floor without the fear of being locked up by Social Services. A very frustrating start to the terrific sequel to Absent Minded Professor, all adding to the frenection of MacMurray, who must now invent something entirely new so that he can save Medfield, his home, and his marriage from the slimey advances of Prof. Shelby Ashton (Elliot Reid) and the return of luscious old flame Desiree de la Roche (Joanna Moore).
All the usual suspects are here from Disney's vast arsenal of character actors to keep us entertained while Ned goes about inventing a weathermaking glassbreaking foodgrowing machine. The Halloween chase scene with Prof. Brainerd terrorizing Shelby Ashton from above with his new rainmaking device is one of the funniest in Disney history. And of course we're treated to another Medfield sports showdown vs. national champs Rutland in a gridiron matchup where Flubber becomes the great equalizer. ROTFL!
However, Disney gets no props for this DVD release. The retail case proudly proclaims on the cover "The Original Black & White Classic." Well, except for one thing...Read more ›
Brainerd refines his flubber into flubber gas. As in the Absent Minded Professor which had a flubbered Basketball game, this time there is a sport game of football.
Alonzo P. Hawk (Keenan Wynn), Disney's greatest live action villian, is back with his snake oil evilness aplome. Tommy Kirk reprised his role as Biff Hawk, the professor's friend and Hawk's son. Nancy Olson also returns as Brainerd's supportive wife Betsy.
Paul Lynde makes an appearance as the sportcaster, showcasing an early Uncle Arthur from Bewitched laugh in his scenes. Ed Wynn, Keenan's father, cameos in this film as a state officer
If you are fan of Classic Disney work, this is one of the best Disney comedy. If you are looking for more than its one joke premious than it has, dont watch this. I like this simple comedy, so it is worth my time-I hope it will be yours too
