Flubber


1h 33m 1997

Brief Synopsis

Professor Phillip Brainard is a man so lost in thought that he appears, at times, not to pay attention. He's even forgotten two dates to marry his sweetheart Sara. But then this guy's got a lot on his mind. He's working with his high-voltage, over-amorous flying robot assistant, Weebo, on an idea for a substance that's not only a revolutionary new source of energy, but may well be the salvation of his financially troubled Medfield College, where his beloved Sara is the president. Late on the afternoon of his third attempt at a wedding, all of Professor Brainard's hard work in the lab comes together when he creates a miraculous goo that when applied to any object--cars, bowling balls, even people--enables them to fly thorugh the air at remarkable speeds. The stuff defies gravity and looks like rubber.
