Scream 2 set to open 19 December Bouncy comedy about a scientist who doesn't know that he's funny, does know that he has a great invention, and is more worried about getting funding than he is about winning tenure Studio: John Hughes, Bill Walsh Producers: Harvey Rosenstock, Michael A. Andrew McAlpine Art Director: Don Bies puppeteerPhil Bray still photographerJessi Chan visual effects supervisorDavid Wainstain special visual effects The miniature set of the town was 50 feet by 50 feet, with most model houses 2 feet high and equipped with picket fence, barbecue, and basketball hoop Costumes: This put it well ahead of the strongly opening Alien Resurrection.
Robin William's star status was renewed, after the inconsistent results of his previous three films: What will he do next?
It was still grossing twice as much as 2 Alien Resurrection.
In Week 3, "Flubber" was squeezed out of 1 ratings by the astonishing superhit debut of Scream 2. It ranked just below the Hollywood debut of "American Werewolf in Paris" and just above the sad flop debut of Warner Bros.
The Postman which the studio had hoped would save the year for them and instead cut deeply into profits. Professor Phillip Brainard Williamsa kind of Wallace sans Gromit, has been given an airborne computer pal named Weebo Flubber itself has been given an actual personality, somewhere between primordial ooze and Chris Farley.
And MacMurray's old jalopy has been replaced by a T-Bird, which is very nice and able to fly.
And a couple of thugs, Smith and Wesson And their boss, the college-foreclosing Chester Hoenicker There are two love triangles. One among Phillip, Sara and Wilson Croft But amid all the Professor Irwin Corey-inspired double-talk about what makes Flubber Flubber, the bigger mystery is what Robin Williams contributes to all of this He's intending not to do so a third time when he accidently creates flubber, a sort of flying rubber that also appears to have a mind of its own.

This site endorsed by Sigourney Weaver. Fox's animated "Anastasia" in its 3rd week and from some bizarro alternate universe in which all the problems of Russia were caused by Rasputin, with no mention whatever of Marx, Engels, Lenin, Bolsheviks, or communism.
Is Fox ashamed of Capitalism, or what? It now ranked just below the 4th week of Paramount's "John Grisham's The Rainmaker" and just above Fox's "Anastasia" in that animation's 5th week.
