New on DVD: 'Meet the Robinsons'
A young inventor time travels to the future as the past threatens to catch up with him.
Meet the Robinsons (G)
In Disney's computer-animated "Meet the Robinsons," each pixel is highly defined; the characters less so. Lewis, an orphan whose inventions suggest that he could be the offspring of Rube Goldberg, is whisked to the future in a time machine by a teen named Wilbur Robinson. The boy's family, who are fruitier than the Carmen Miranda hat Lewis has to wear as a disguise, soon find themselves under attack from a bowler-hatted villain. Lacking fully-rounded characters, the film isn't likely to be included in any time capsules. Grade: C+ – Stephen Humphries
