After moving to a new city, young Andy Barclay receives a special present from his mother -- a seemingly innocent Buddi doll that becomes his best friend. When the doll suddenly takes on a life of its own, Andy unites with other neighborhood children to stop the sinister toy from wreaking bloody havoc.
To bring life to his fully articulated hands, Chucky's little fingers were threaded with tiny cables that would lead back through a rod and out the elbow to a finger control mechanism operated by the puppeteers. MastersFX mechanics would also create self-contained radio-controlled hands that were capable of a bit less articulation for wider shots that didn't require as much finger movement. See more »
In the first part of the film, Chucky mistakes Andy's name as "Andy sup" and calls him this. He starts to call him simply "Andy" after a while. Presumably, they either figured out how to change his name as one can with Siri or Alexa, or Chucky's intelligence grows enough to know to call him just "Andy." See more »
At Kaslan, we believe that happiness is about more than entertainment. It's about being known, understood, loved. Introducing you new best friend, Buddi.

Disjointed and lame dialogue and plots points, censored violence, and an untimely remake.
This movie is just a mess. The principal from The Breakfast Club is the CEO of the company that makes the 'Buddi' dolls. This is a poor attempt to update an 80's hit, where old-style dolls are outfitted with Wifi, and can control lights and TV's. The problem is that it shows people going to retail toy stores, which, as of 2019, are almost non-existent anymore! It has all the family and friendship cliches that are typical of modern movies. The violence often gets toned down, by changing camera angles so you can't see most of the violence. When you do see it, it is either too dark to make out, or happens too fast to get more than a brief blip of it. The children are like the ones in 'It': very annoying and acting unlike real kids would talk or act. The friendships seem forced at times, for the sake of moving the story along.
