I took the kids to see this on the IMAX bigscreen this weekend, and we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

While Robin Williams has certainly done better animated work, this was still just a lot of fun.

Perhaps I am too-jaded-now, but an awful lot of this flick suggested the animation was being done for a video game first, and then they forced a story into it.

Nevertheless, the characters worked, some of the jokes were pretty clever, most of the animation was thrilling on the big screen, and this film will easily become a DVD to add to the family collection.

Did anyone else catch this yet?

We saw it. I laughed like a maniac and so did my 17 year old daughter and 15 year old son.

Robin as Brittney - it rocked. Of course, we already have this:

I participated in both. Zed would probably have some comment about my quality of life...

I saw it to review for our school newspaper....I thought the animation was as good as I've ever seen, but the story was lacking and I thought the characters were a bit one-dimensional. Of course, kids don't really care about those things.

I was surprised that there weren't many laugh-out-loud moments, especially considering Robin Williams was in the cast.

EDIT: AWArulz nailed the one time I remember laughing out loud...Williams' character dancing like Britney Spears.

"Robots" had lots of cute and clever moments, but
very few really funny moments. Williams hasn't
been "laugh out loud" for years and many of his
antics came across as desperate attempts at humor.

Still the crazy gadgets and positive but hackneyed
storyline made it a pleasant experience, though
nothing close to "Toy Story", "Monsters Inc" or
"The Incredibles."
