What a fun ride, from beginning to end. The Mitchells vs. the Machines throws a quirky family of weirdos into a chaotic and hilarious road trip to save the world. Following the classic Man vs. Machine trope, this animated beauty packs a punch, bringing both the laughs and the feels.
Abbi Jacobson, Danny McBride, Maya Rudolph, Eric Andre, Doug the Pug (yes, you read that right), and many more lend their voices to a wide array of characters that I absolutely loved. If you’ve ever spent a lot of time with pugs you’ll immediately appreciate the family dog Monchi for what he is: an adorable and ridiculous creature that sometimes is hard to discern if it is a dog, a pig, or a loaf of bread.
Sony Pictures Animation knocked it out of the park with this one, very much in the way they did with 2018’s Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, with innovative animation that isn’t afraid to go outside the box, fun and interesting characters, and a plot that provides the perfect balance of humor and heart.
If you’ve not yet seen this movie and could use a good laugh, it is highly recommended! 🙂
