Meet the Robinsons an enjoyable film

I was pleasantly surprised by the Disney film Meet the Robinsons. It is based upon A Day With Wilbur Robinson, a picture book by William Joyce.

The movie tells the story of Lewis, an amateur inventor. When his latest experiment is sabotaged, he and his time-travelling buddy, Will Robinson, must figure out a way to prevent a villain from creating an ominous future. The movie gets a little out of control during the family Robinson scenes, and the time-travel plot confused me, but the film's motto to keep moving forward (rather than dwell on past failures) is a good message to impart without being overly didactic.
