Hi Carl and hi everyone out there, tonight I’m going to talk about the Netflix family film everyone’s talking about, “The Mitchell’s vs the Machines.”
We are introduced to Katie Mitchell, a highly creative self-proclaimed film nerd played by Abbi Jacobson); she can’t wait to get to college to be part of a community of people who actually understand her.
She and her dad (Danny McBride) just don’t seem to see eye-to-eye.
Mom Linda (Maya Rudolph) tries to keep the peace, while kid brother Aaron (voiced by director Michael Rianda) is happy as long as dinosaurs are involved.
Clip: Wait, the last humans must be here somewhere. We’re the Mitchell’s the only people that can save the world.
Dad decides to take the family on a cross-country family road trip to take Katie to college as a way to enjoy some family bonding time. They had no idea the adventure they were about to encounter.
Clip: Let me introduce myself; I’m Katie Mitchell; my parents haven’t figured me out yet. My little brother is also weird.
The Bottomline: I’m way in, “The Mitchell’s vs the Machines” has impressive colorful graphics, it’s packed full of endless creative energy, that asks the question, ]“How are we supposed to communicate with each other if we’re all on our phones nonstop?”
Thanks so much for listening in tonight; this is Sarah Knight Adamson, your Film and TV critic, and I’ll see you next week.
