PREVIEW REVIEW: There are few sounds greater than children laughing. And for a film critic who has suffered through many a mediocre kids movie, what a pleasure to feel the same joy the intended audience received from watching a film. Full of energy and humor, with an exceptional voice cast and a clever script that is part adventure, part parable, Meet the Robinsons delivers one of the best family films youll see this year.

Meet the Robinsons is being shown in 3-D in some theaters. Now, I want you to do yourself and especially your kids a favor. Go out of your way to see this one in 3-D. Trust me on this. Youll be sending me notes of gratitude. It may be the best 3-D animation this reviewer has ever seen. The detail is eye-filling.

I felt good when I left the theater. I had just seen a family film that had more on its mind than just being rated G. I sensed the filmmakers were having a blast making this film and that they wanted to go the extra mile. They succeeded. Quite simply put, Meet the Robinsons is a winner for the entire family.

The best animated film since The Incredibles!
