Tomorrowland Big

I wanted badly to love Tomorrowland. A Disney movie about a place where the drug of choice is a hefty dose of imagination, directed by the man who brought us The Incredibles and The Iron Giant, starring George Clooney as the virile gray mentor to his gorgeous, my-age co-star: I rushed to the theater with the excitement of a kid with a shiny new toy. Sadly, I left with a similar disappointment to the kid who finds out his shiny new toy doesn’t do much more than be shiny. For all its brightly colored Disney ornamentation, the movie lacked the subtle maturity of Walt & Co.’s better films. It felt like a movie made by kids, for kids, seeming to suggest that if we smile big enough, things might just get better. Well…if you see it, don’t forget to smile.
