Books by the Author. Temporal Anomalies in Time Travel Movies unravels Meet the Robinsons Disney's Pixar productions are always well-made and usually entertaining, but how do they do with time travel? Disney's The Kid was too much fantasy and not very well structured for analysis, but as we look at the new one, Meet the Robinsons, we find a lot of challenging ideas in an entertaining format. The final verdict is--well, first, the details.

The film is laced with disasters that are overlooked in the name of a fun story. It certainly is enjoyable, but don't expect it to make any sense at any point, at least from a time travel perspective. Suffice it that it is difficult to imagine how the story could be more disastrous temporally speaking, but it is an enjoyable and fun story worth watching on its other merits. It begins with twelve year old genius inventor Lewis, left by his mother on the steps of the orphanage as a newborn, who is thinking he will never be adopted, and his roommate Mike Yagoobian, or "Goob", who is an ordinary kid who plays baseball.

Lewis decides to build a Memory Scanner, to find the memory of his birth mother's face so he can search for her and be reunited; but his first test will be at the science fair. Meanwhile, in the future by about one generation, teenager Wilbur Robinson leaves the garage door unlocked, and someone he calls Bowler Hat Guy whom we will call Bowler for convenience steals one of only two working time machines, and travels to the science fair to sabotage Lewis.

His hat, whom he calls Doris, is independently mobile and artificially intelligent, and is in fact the brains of the team, Bowler himself being comically stupid. He intends to steal the Memory Scanner and sell it to Inventco, in order to ruin Lewis' life. Wilbur takes the other time machine and pursues Bowler to the past, trying to prevent this, but Lewis does not believe Wilbur is from the future so Wilbur takes him there on his promise to fix the Memory Scanner if he does.

Lewis then decides he doesn't need his Memory Scanner because he can use the time machine to go see his mother on the day he was delivered to the orphanage. In the ensuing squabble the machine crashes, stranding Lewis in the future; Wilbur says his dad is going to kill him, unless Lewis, the genius inventor, can fix the time machine. Lewis begins working on it--after taking a wrong step and being introduced to everyone in the Robinson family, except Wilbur's father, as a new kid in school.

In the past, Bowler cannot figure out how to activate the Memory Scanner, so he can't sell it; he goes to kidnap Lewis, and instead finds Goob. Goob is upset because, thanks to Lewis keeping him awake all night, he fell asleep on the baseball field, missed an easy catch, lost the game, and got pounded by his team. Bowler counsels him to let his hatred fester. Doris then deduces that Lewis fled through time, so they return to the future to kidnap him and learn how to operate the machine.

This is a comedy of errors, but is relavant only when Bowler kidnaps a tyrannosaur from the past and mind controls it in another comically failed effort to catch Lewis. The Robinson family offers to adopt Lewis, but then his hat falls off and they see his hair, and from this recognize him, knowing that he came from the past, and saying he must return to the past.

Doris then has Bowler offer a deal, to take Lewis to meet his mother in exchange for instruction on operating the Memory Scanner. Lewis complies, but Doris double-crosses him, leaving him stranded in the future as the villains return to the past to sell the machine. The future begins changing around him; it is evident that Doris has conquered the world.

Lewis frantically manages to finish repairs on the other time machine, races to the past, prevents the changes, then drags Bowler forward to see the future Doris would have created, as it changes around them to the future Lewis has restored. Lewis returns to his own time by way of a quick stop on the day he was left at the orphanage, and we have a happy ending with several loose ends secured. There are a few critical facts omitted from this which are worse spoilers than all that was said, and which are fatal to the time travel adventures here; we cover those next.

We gave a brief overview of the story, but said we would next hit the really big spoilers. These all relate to the relationships between people in the future and people in the past. For example, there is a girl at the science fair doing something with frogs, and in the future she is Wilbur's mother, Francis.

One of the judges, Dr. Krunklehorn, is Wilbur's grandmother on his father's side. These relationships are significant but not critical; three others matter much more seriously.

The one we have called Bowler, who is trying to ruin Lewis' life, is the grown up version of Lewis' roommate Goob. He has never forgiven Lewis for keeping him awake all night before that game and so causing him to miss the catch because he was, literally, asleep on his feet. That bitterness has been evident in every adoption interview he had thereafter, and he was thus never adopted.

It thus is very significant that Bowler has a conversation with Goob, because that conversation causes Goob to make the choices that form him into Bowler. Obviously we have a problem there. A much bigger problem arises because the inventive Lewis is Wilbur's father, inventor not only of the Memory Scanner but of a wealth of other products including the time machine. When Wilbur takes Lewis to the future--well, that's several problems. Finally, among Lewis' future inventions is a bowler hat with some artificial intelligence that was intended to help people get dressed, but which wanted a larger role in life, was taken out of service, and escaped to become Doris.

Time travel fans, and particularly those who follow this series, undoubtedly already recognize multiple problems here, and may be mentally scrambling to find solutions. The filmmakers have done an excellent job of blocking all the obvious ones and several of the illogical ones as well. We will address the story from the beginning, and create the timelines as they are formed, beginning with an effort to reconstruct the original history.

We know that there will be no time machine unless Lewis who will change his name to Cornelius invents it, and thus we know that he must become a successful inventor. Further, Doris sabotages the Memory Scanner at the science fair, and then steals it expecting it to work once she fixes the part she broke very risky, since operating it while it was sabotaged appears to have broken other parts.

Thus it seems most likely that the Memory Scanner works at the science fair in the original history. Lewis wins, and is adopted by the judge and her husband, to become Cornelius Robinson. While Lewis is winning the science fair, though, Goob is loosing the baseball game and being assaulted by his teammates. He returns home, and now we step outside of certainty. In the timeline we see, Goob is upset about losing but determined to get past it; Bowler persuades him to cultivate his bitterness instead.

Bowler is not here in the original, and that suggests that Goob will deal with the loss and move forward in life--and so never become Bowler.

Yet the problems start because Bowler steals the time machine, and so Goob must become Bowler. What will bring us to that? Further, it is clear that following this victory he is adopted, the roommate whom Goob thought could never be adopted, certainly not before he himself was.

Goob's bitterness must arise from the fact that not only did everything go wrong for him, everything went wonderfully right for the kid whose fault it is, and indeed it all goes right for Lewis because Lewis chose to keep Goob awake all night while working on his project. So Lewis kept Goob awake, and then while Goob was losing the baseball game and taking a beating for having done so, Lewis was winning the science fair because of his night of work, and to add insult to quite literal injury, Lewis gets adopted leaving Goob alone in the room at the orphanage.

Goob forgets about getting over his bitterness and lets it fester. Lewis, meanwhile, becomes rich and famous, and marries Fran--but here we hit a snag. For Bowler to come to the past he must steal the time machine; for him to do that, Wilbur must leave the garage unlocked.

That means Wilbur must be born, and thus that Lewis must marry Fran. But Lewis has not yet met Fran--she is another contestant at the science fair, and he is entirely preoccupied with making his Memory Scanner work, and once it succeeds with seeing the face of his birth mother.

Then before the day has ended he is whisked away to a new life as a member of the Robinson family. Yet if he does not meet Fran, only part of the future will come to pass, and Wilbur will not be there. It is a complex issue that requires our attention.

Meanwhile, we also have the problem that he built the memory scanner so he could see the face of his birth mother--and it worked. That was the first step in a plan to find her, so he could be reunited with her. That is also an issue to be considered before we can get to the future. If all goes well at the science fair, and Lewis does not travel to the future, he probably never meets Fran; she's just another contestant in the fair with a wild idea about teaching frogs to sing.

Lewis wins, and in a whirlwind rush he is then interviewed by the Robinsons, who adopt him, and he probably never sees Fran again. The probability that they would meet later is minimal--her studies are all in animal behavior, the biological and social sciences, and his are all in engineering, physics, mechanics, and electronics. We know that the Memory Scanner must have worked, because otherwise it would be meaningless for Doris to sabotage it.

We also know that if it worked, Lewis will have seen the face of his mother from twelve years before, and that his attention is already divided between the face of his mysterious birth mother and the new chance to be part of a family, adopted by one of the judges and her husband. He is not going to notice Fran. All of this means that there must have been some other way for Lewis to meet Fran at a later time, and for the two of them to become interested in each other and reach the point that they marry, from an entirely different path.

Then when Lewis sees that in the future they are married, he discovers that he met her earlier at that science fair, and knowing that she is the girl he is going to marry he pursues a relationship with her sooner. Which begs the question, will that work? That is, it is not impossible for a couple to get together in middle school or junior high, at twelve or thirteen years old, and stay together for years, marry each other, and remain together until one of them dies my brother-in-law and his wife did just that.

Nor is it impossible for two kids to meet each other, then meet each other again years later and connect, or even to know each other as acquaintances when young only only discover each other as lovers when they are older. The question is whether the kind of people who would fall in love at twelve and stay together through adulthood are the same kind of people who would have casual relationships through high school and then discover their partner later. Dating is very complex--people date as a process of learning with what kind of person they really would want to spend their lives, and frequently change quite a bit through the process.

The Fran and Lewis who meet in middle school would not be the same couple as the Fran and Lewis who find each other in college. It changes who they are. As Back to the Future part I taught us, if you change the way a relationship begins, you change its character entirely. It may also change who their family is--Wilbur would be born in one scenario, but not in the other, or at least, not the same Wilbur, and possibly Wilhemina.

It is going to be different. It might even be fatal to time, as enough would change to alter events. A significant part of the action in this movie is motivated by Lewis' desire to find the mother who left him at the orphanage. That is why he invents the Memory Scanner which he enters in the science fair. We have established that without Bowler sabotaging the device, it will work the first time, and seeing the face of his mother in the scanner will distract him.

The question is what he does next. Lewis did this because having counted the number of potential adoption interviews he believes he will never be adopted by anyone other than his birth mother. Now he has the face of his mother, and he has that single-minded determination that caused him to keep Goob awake all night and which had him rushing to the science fair and telling the head of the orphanage that he wasn't interested in meeting another family.

Yet at this moment something must cause him to change his mind, just as he has accomplished an unimaginably major step in his plan. Lewis is scheduled to meet the Robinsons, not in the future but right now, and if he does not do so he does not become Cornelius Robinson. This raises many other problems. He still invented the Memory Scanner, and is likely to become the same famous inventor. He might still marry Fran although now we have a third entirely different route to the same wedding , and he might have a son named Wilbur--but not Wilbur Robinson , son of Cornelius and Fran Robinson.

User Reviews

Meet the Robinsons is a computer-animated family film produced by Walt Disney Pictures about a intelligent young boy named Lewis, who invents things but does not have any family, even though he wants one. Then one day, Lewis' world is changed when a boy called Wilbur, who has a time-machine, takes Lewis on a trip to the future to meet Wilbur's family — The Robinsons. So we had some different challenges: we had skin texture we had to work out, we had to grow hair off of characters' heads and we had to find an animation style that was still fun and loose and had some caricature to it, but could portray humans in a believable way. The Incredibles was a definite inspiration for this. It was eye-popping to me, and certainly part of my education in 3D and how to do character animation with all of its subtleties.

While longing to be adopted, year-old aspiring inventor Lewis is whisked away from the orphanage into the future and finds out he may play a larger role in the fate of the world than he ever knew. The film is presented in several theaters in 3-D. Big question: Can Disney succeed with its first major foray into what could be the future of animation?

Meet the Robinsons Funniest Scenes

They built the Happiest Place on Earth, so it stands to reason that Walt Disney Animation should be pretty well versed in the art of creating structures built to house all sorts of wonderful stuff—like, say, movies filled with overflowing assortments of little details meant to fill observant fans with surprise and delight. In fact, it wouldn't be all that hard to argue that when it comes to in-jokes and Easter eggs, no one does it better than the House of Mouse. Disney movies are full of really cool hidden secrets that keep fans talking for years—and after decades upon decades of cranking out classic entertainment the whole family can enjoy, they've compiled an impressively deep collection of clips that offer delightful fan service to hardcore fans while the average viewer remains blissfully unaware. From older favorites to more recent hits, here's a look back at hidden Disney moments almost no one notices. But it also almost had some rock and roll…if the filmmakers had their way, that is. As you may have noticed, the four vultures who sing "That's What Friends Are For" have familiar English accents and mop tops. That's because they were modeled after the Fab Four, the Beatles.

Top 10 Movie Scenes Where The Younger Version Of A Character Meets Their Older Selves

As a year-old boy, Michael is more interested in baseball than his roommate's inventing hobby. He is mature for his age as he is willing to let go of his problem. However, in one of Lewis' timelines, after he missed the winning catch, his fury became uncontrollable as he was constantly in a bad mood. Once the orphanage shut down, as time progressed and as he grew up , his resentment of Lewis grew. As a result of shutting himself from the world for three decades, Goob never properly matured as an adult as his anger caused a stunted mental development.

It's goofy, it's obvious, and several of its inspirations are only borderline successful, but with the exception of David Fincher's Zodiac , the figure-skating comedy Blades of Glory is the most thoroughly enjoyable movie I've yet seen in It's also, quite possibly, the best, most unexpectedly clever work of its type since The Year-Old Virgin.

Most of the movie is very exciting, humorous and heartwarming. In the middle, the movie loses its way, but the plot soon engages the audience again. The movie has some very poignant, positive statements, the scary moments are lightweight, and there are few negative elements. The story opens with a little baby being left at an orphanage.

A maybe? Just giving you all a heads up. Disney started their theme of traumatic animal plots very early on. Bambi is basically on everyone's list of most upsetting Disney movies ever. Yes, he does eventually make it out of the hole and back home, but dear lord, when he just gives up and lays down in the mud?

Meet the Robinsons (G)

In , she began teaming up with Kentucky guitarist Mickey Baker , who then taught her how to play guitar. Sylvia restarted her solo career shortly after her initial split from Baker, first under the name Sylvia Robbins. In , frustrated with the music business, Baker moved to Paris. In , the Robinsons moved to New Jersey where they formed a soul music label, All Platinum Records , the following year, with artist Lezli Valentine, formerly of the Jaynetts , bringing the label its first hit with "I Won't Do Anything".

Before the days of VHS, if an animator slipped something into the background of a film, it really was an in-joke that quite possibly very few people could ever find out about. Once home-video came into play — and the slo-mo features that came with it — fans could pore over every frame of a movie.

The Disney movie closest to your heart is probably the one you saw at just the right age and rewatched on a parent-tormenting loop. Trying to objectively critique these movies can be a challenge. How do you assess their quality without taking nostalgia into account? So, to embark on the Herculean task of ranking every Disney Animation Studios film — not movies put out by DisneyToon A Goofy Movie , classic coproductions Mary Poppins , or more contemporary collaborations anything by Pixar — I rewatched all 57 of these movies and developed a scoring system based on plot, characters, music, animation, and influence. The results are, of course, tempered by personal bias, but I did my best to look at the big picture.
