SYNOPSIS

Forgetful Professor Phillip Brainard inadvertently creates “Flubber” in his lab, misses his wedding date repeatedly, and is menaced by bungling goons hired by a jealous rival out to steal his lady and his invention. Producer and co-screenwriter John Hughes renders the Disney classic, “The Absent-Minded Professor” for the digital-effects crowd, dusting it with the slapstick hyperbole of his “Home Alone” films and “modern” touches like Brainard’s sassy floating personal robot, Weebo. Meanwhile, the flubber itself takes on a life of its own, executing a musical production number.
