Our Score
Viewers will remember that "flubber" was the flying rubber invented by Fred MacMurray in the fun family comedy The Absent-Minded Professor. Disney reassembled many of the same cast two years later, but usually reliable director Robert Stevenson couldn't repeat the winning formula. Most of the jokes about jumping to unfeasible heights had been used up in the original and somehow dry rain and flubber gas just don't have the same comic potential. Keenan Wynn enjoys himself as the villain and veterans Leon Ames and Charlie Ruggles demonstrate the value of experienced character support.


An eccentric inventor thinks he can make it rich by developing a means to control the weather, but his efforts end in as series of disasters. Disney's comedy sequel to The Absent Minded Professor, starring Fred MacMurray, Nancy Olson, Keenan Wynn and Tommy Kirk.
