This 3D family adventure starring Brendan Fraser belongs to that recent trend of remakes that are so cynical as to not even have the courage to be remakes. Instead they take a kind of ironic real-world remake within a movie approach to the source material (e.g. Bewitched). The result is a lot of pseudo-science blabbering and cardboard characters and not enough fun.
