Flubber | 1997 | PG | - 2.4.1

An absent-minded professor discovers flying rubber in his lab. With Robin Williams.

VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - There's a great amount of cartoonish violence, and even though nobody is seriously injured or killed, it may be scary for younger viewers: A man sparks two large explosions in his basement. A man jumps out of a 2nd floor window and lands on his back. Two men are repeatedly hit on the head with a flying golfball and bowling ball; both men are shown with multiple bumps and bruises. A man is whacked on the head with an apple. Another man is hit in the head with a basketball. Two people are back-handed hard in the face. A boy wearing Flubber shoes flies face-first into a basketball backboard. A boy is hit in the head with a glass ashtray. Two men punch each other in a comical fight. A woman punches a man repeatedly during the same fight. A man is thrown through a plate-glass window.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
