An animated action-comedy about an ordinary family who find themselves in the middle of their biggest family challenge yet...saving the world from the robot apocalypse. No big deal, right? It all starts when creative outsider Katie Mitchell is accepted into the film school of her dreams and is eager to leave home and find "her people," when her nature-loving dad insists on having the whole family drive her to school and bond during one last totally-not-awkward-or-forced road trip. But just when the trip can't get any worse, the family suddenly finds itself in the middle of the robot uprising. Everything from smart phones, to roombas, to evil Furbys are employed to capture every human on the planet. Now it's up to the Mitchells, including upbeat mom Linda, quirky little brother Aaron, their squishy pug, Monchi, and two friendly, but simple-minded robots to save humanity. Written by Netflix

At the end of the film when Katie is leaving for college, a shot shows a group staring in their direction. The person on the left is wearing a blue T-shirt and green shorts, but in the next shot the same group can be seen in the background and that person is wearing a red T-shirt and trousers.

Totally worth a watch!
30 April 2021 | by averagejoe-15644See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this film and laughed really hard my diaphragm hurt. It was a really well told story and the animation style reminded me of the Into the spider verse style but with its own twist.

The jokes were on point as well, the humour had its own unique quirky feel which once you are in on the joke just brings along for the ride.

Totally worth a watch for everybody it's just a great family film for everyone with something for all to enjoy.
