Plot Summary

A bumbling professor accidentally invents flying rubber, or "Flubber," an incredible material that gains energy every time it strikes a hard surface. It allows for the invention of shoes that can allow jumps of amazing heights and enables a modified Model-T to fly. Unfortunately, no one is interested in the material except for Alonzo Hawk, a corrupt businessman who wants to steal the material for himself.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Flubber provides fuel for a very funny piece of hyperbolic humor in the grand American tradition of Paul Bunyan, and Director Robert Stevenson and Scriptwriter Bill Walsh get plenty of bounce out of every ounce. – TIME Magazine, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: MacMurray is ideally cast as the car-hopping prof, and plays the role with warmth and gusto. – Variety, Jun 24, 2010
