In short- don't bother.
You know, I am a big fan of animation. I've probably seen every animated Disney movie released in the last 10 years, I raved in my previous blog about "The Incredibles", and I loved both Shrek movies. With so many examples of great animation, I fail to understand why movie studios still seem to manage to come up with such dissapointments as "Robots". As I understand it, this was Robin Williams first animated movie in 15 years. His last animated movie was "Alladin" for Disney. He should have waited.
It's pretty bad when even Robin Williams' insane brand of humor can't even save a movie. The story made little sense. In one scene you have "Fender", the Robin Williams voiced robot, suddenly decide, at the most inappropriate moment to break out into a robot impression of a Brittany Spears dance routine! In another scene, the big hero robot, idol of millions, suddenly is seen surfing a sea of dominos while riding on a giant domino. Huh? What the hell is the point of stupid, useless scenes like these? It seems like the entire movie was a half hour movie that got padded out to 90 minutes because the movie was too short. There were too many stupid, useless action sequences in this movie that took up a lot of time. Anyone who knows anything about movies knows that every scene in the movie should be designed to fit together and progress the story to its conclusion. A movie like "The Incredibles" exemplifies this beautifully. Every scene in that movie progressed the story. Most scenes in this movie just seemed to be a disjointed mixture of sight gags designed for laughs, and most of them weren't even funny!
There have been way too many horrible movies released into theaters these days. When will movie companies learn?
