Storyline

Professor Ned Brainard's discovery of flubber hasn't quite brought him - or his college - the riches he thought. The Pentagon has declared his discovery to be top secret and the IRS has slapped him with a huge tax bill, even if he has yet to receive a cent. He thinks he may have found the solution in the form of flubbergas, which can change the weather. It also helps Medfield College's football team to win a game. At home, his wife Betsy is jealous of the attention lavished on him by an old high school girlfriend. Written by garykmcd

Quotes

Defense Secretary: Professor, I don't think you realize how important this discovery of yours is. It's big. We've got to handle it big, everything about it. If you settle chickenfeed now, it's going to be a chickenfeed operation. Everyone is going to lose face. Everything is going to fall apart, all the way down the line. And the free world loses another battle. Is that what you want?
Professor Ned Brainard: Well, no, I wouldn't that, sir.

much more entertaining than the Prequel,The Abesnt MInded Professor (6.5/10)
23 November 2008 | by disdressed12See all my reviews

this sequel to The Absent Minded Professor is actually a better movie.i found it funnier,more entertaining and it had a better story.the character were expanded a bit more,which makes sense,since it is a sequel.unlike Professor,this one doesn't have any slow or boring moments.it's much better paced.i like the fact that the wife had more to do in this one.the movie is just as silly,but it's meant to be,and if you keep that in mind going in,you'll probably enjoy it more.it's not high art or anything,but it will keep you entertained for 102 minutes or so.and it's fun for the whole family.my vote for The Son of Flubber:6.5/10
