Given that Disney's live-action film was written principally by Lost's Damon Lindelof, it's no surprise that its tantalizing premise fizzles in a flawed finale. Worse, this nostalgic Epcot Theme Park ride taints unassailable director Brad Bird (The Incredibles). Casey Newton (Britt Robertson), the precocious daughter of a NASA engineer (Tim McGraw), lands in the pokey for sabotaging the disassembly of launch pads at Cape Canaveral. When she makes bail, she finds a "T"-emblazoned pin that gives her a glimpse into the futuristic Tomorrowland, stocked with the brightest minds. Casey must find Frank (George Clooney), an exile from the eponymous city, which has fallen into dystopian disrepair, to save it and our world. Their trip through the looking glass lacks joy and internal logic. With the world's best ballet dancers and wind-energy engineers are being recruited to rebuild paradise, couldn't someone have tossed in a good screenwriter?
