I may be rating it a bit high, but I watched it with my young kids & they were screaming with laughter through most of this. It's a familiar dysfunctional family road trip trope made fresh by the brilliant animation and rapid-delivery humor style. It's built entirely on references to other movies and internet pop culture. If that kind of chaotic humor annoys you, I can totally understand this movie coming across as irritating. Kid: I absolutely love it!! My favorite part was the GIGANTIC furby.

The biggest surprise of 2021. I cannot believe I put it off for so long. It’s off the walls yet absolutely hilarious (think The Lego Movie), yet it’s extremely heartfelt. Every single character gets a moment to shine and I personally loved the father-daughter plot. We don’t get enough father-daughter movies in my opinion. I’m a big family person, so all of the road trip stuff and old family videos hit really close to home for me. I have no complaints. Stop what you’re doing and watch it!

It's been 13 months since the pandemic changed everything and this is the first film I've felt truly bummed I couldn't experience it in the theatre. It's bright and beautiful and loud and hilarious and brimming with talent in every frame. Never would've expected this, but in my estimation Sony has usurped Pixar in terms of unstoppable quality (and this just a few months after Pixar released SOUL). That's what happens when you invest in and trust creative weirdo artists.

Charming, predictable, and safe. "The Mitchells vs. the Machines" doesn't break any new ground, but it doesn't commit any movie crimes either. The only thing it really excels at is some solid animation.

At the risk of sounding anti-Fun, once you get used to the initial absurdity of the story and settle into the characters, it's all just ok. The Goofy Movie as reimagined through the last 10 years of meme culture. Characters develop not at all and then one scene for each does all the heavy lifting, making the film feel overstuffed and overlong. The evil sentient Furbys are a fucking mood, though: "Behold! The Twilight of Man" in monotone sarcasm.

Enjoyable and sweet-hearted animated film is great fun for the most part, beautifully cast down the line (with Colman’s shrieking for the back-stalls a highlight) and mixing in some genuine warmth and emotions in the character relationships. If it occasionally feels a little too imitative (*cough* Incredibly imitative *cough*), and even calculated at times, the genuinely clever and witty screenplay makes up for it, even smoothing over some mildly irritating high decibels.

Light and fun. The jokes are jokey. The feelings are felt. What stood out to me more than anything is the visuals. The way they incorporated the main character's videographer aesthetic. The pedigree behind this is high, but I must admit that I'm finding the Lord-Miller brand of animation to be an assault on the senses. In other words, I'm gettin too old for this...

The Mitchell family is your typical roadtrip dysfunctional family. Borrowing heavily from pop culture and movie/internet history, the Mitchell's is proud in its references and internet humor. If memes and physical humor are your thing, the jokes are fast paced and hilarious. Although, the Mitchell's is more than it's lightning quick humor, its also got a lot of heart to it and an authentic feeling Father/Daughter storyline. It hits its beats well and is very touching, if a little predictable.

Even though the story seems familiar, the movie manages to breath new life into it using gorgeous animation, a perfect mixture of hilarious and heartwarming und a solid voice cast. Not as amazing as 'Into the Spiderverse' but still peak family animation.

When they defeated the robots and saved the world to a silly pop song... I felt that. On a serious note- the mechanics of the story are very predictable from very early on, but they are well executed for the most part. Along with mile a minute creativity and gags and references and a whole lot of stuff = good movie.

The family dynamics are very fun, funny, and relatable. The animation style--including the mix of 3d punctuated with 2d--was inventive and fresh. I didn't find it completely hilarious like many folks, but it's funny enough and absolutely worth watching. The central father-daughter relationship is something we don't see enough of.

The Mitchells vs. the Machines is a rather unremarkable movie. The animation, voice acting, humour and story are all decent, but fail to deliver anything new or memorable. When the Rihanna song played during the finale, I did have to check what year it was.

Definitely made with a lot of love and contains fresh and snappy humor, but the main story is really lacking in originality, which makes it a very weak backbone for all the craziness built up around it.

I wasn't terribly interested in this film until It was recommended to me several times. I'm so glad I watched It though! It's really hard to do something new and entertaining in animation, especially when Disney is running the pack, but I think Rianda and Rowe did a great job! This movie really balances humor, heart, and story very well. Though we've maybe seen this family dynamic before, I think they utilized it well with the apocalyptic setting and stylish animation. I give 9 pugs out of 10.

Wacky and wonderful, with a second half in particular that's a non-stop barrage of laugh-out-loud hilarity (see Furby's "Let the dark harvest begin!" and later, "Mom's scary now"), wild action (see Linda's first battle and oil splatter), and waterfall-eye emotion (see the moose and "No, this is easy"). Rounding it out are great visuals (see the cool comic-style add-ons), a uniquely likeable protagonist, and commentary on tech and generational differences that's funny and ultimately well-rounded.

It does a lot of things right - the jokes hit often, animation style is fun and distinct, the characters are memorable, the father/daughter relationship is refreshing, it has a queer protagonist without patting itself on the back for it, etc etc. However, I can't help but feel for all the talk about embracing your weirdness, the wholly standard emotional beats and plot progression undermines that a bit. The limits of big budgets? Still, for what it is, it's pretty good.

Comes under the umbrella of "movies that perpetually self cripple". It may be visually creative but, at the end of the day, it's just another cliché-driven kids movie, wrapped up in the seemingly novel guise of a robot apocalypse. Most of what's unique is owed to quirky randomness and obnoxious internet memage; and the rest feels pulled from the brain-assaulting stylings of The Lego Movie. It doesn't work half as well here.

Has a Monsters vs Aliens/Cloudy With a Chance.. vibe but the laughs & CGI not as consistently high quality. Overlong, oddly spending more in the ‘downtime’ scenes than the funny, fast-moving action ones, with the potentially touching father/daughter story becoming tiresome by the end. Everything’s very ‘cartooney’: throwaway scenes where nobody is ever in any real peril and any threat is neutralised conveniently quickly, and I must admit I was starting to zone out as the film reached its climax.

The animation is really lovely. Character designs are okay. I strongly dislike the "meet the abusive jerk halfway to fix him because deep down he muuuust love you" message. I can appreciate "you can fix him" as a fantasy, but not as a moral! The LGBT representation I heard about was pretty minimal. The plot/premise is sort of like "The Incredibles" plus "2.0". (No, I'm pretty sure that's a pig.) Overall fairly cute and entertaining, worth a watch if you like this kind of movie!

A wonderfully surprising animated film that is both funny, often original (though the overall premise is familiar), and heartfelt. Some scenes (the electronics in the mall, for instance) are pretty great. I think it might have been better if they'd kind of hidden what kind of movie it was and the Machines part came out of nowhere a quarter of the way into what appears like a pretty normal family animated film. The dog is consistently hilarious. Very good.

Sorta Scott Pilgrim vs The World style, but less comic book (and cringy) and more.. idk, charming scrapbook-y youtube storytelling. The family dynamics are seriously relatable; on the level of Encanto even, which I absolutely adored in that respect. What really stands out to me is that this movie doesn't try to make all technology out to be the enemy. 2/3 of the way through, the script even directly acknowledges that. I recommend it to all. Watch with subtitles and you'll understand the Furbies

Some great moments (the Furbys attack!) in the middle of a lot of family movie cliches, disguised as "ehi we are the weirdo family though". The target seems to clearly be teenagers, but with references wink-wink for the 30-40something years old watching. I'm an heartless person, I know. Good for a lighthearted holiday evening.

Unique animation and the classic charm of dysfunctional family make bearable an otherwise bland first hour - daddy issues, a passive wide-hipped mother, and "tech is bad" being major weights on its ankles - but the dad resolution is lovely, the mom gets her moments, and the few jokes about megacorps were a good step forward for the bad-tech cliché, I guess, even if the faceless villain puts aside the real-life human CEOs actively stealing from and murdering people.

I would have liked it more if it weren't for the dragged out final act in which we threw out everything we loved about the Mitchells' averageness and turned them into superheroes. Before that it was a better version of Ron's Gone Wrong. Fav scene: the Instagram family busting out of the store phootgenically and then the Mitchells failing to do the same.

It was an enjoyable watch and after having seen the whole film, the second half felt more justified. But I would have been honestly satiated had it ended with the first half. The first half felt almost self-contained from the second half, it followed the three arc structure all the way to the finale – except the film was mid-way at that point when I thought it should've ended. Latter half however delivers many of the laughs and the feels, so the odd middle muddling is forgiven.

If you can ignore the cliché moments, the bad writing, the deus ex machina bits, and just go in blind ready for some quirky humor, then you'll have a great time. It should be illegal to be this funny, basically this movie is a nonstop stream of fun that will catch you by surprise more than once and guarantee a good time. And it's real pretty too. Watch it.

Overall an enjoyable animated adventure romp and one I could easily recommend. MvtM does tend to come across as trying too hard to appeal to just about every demographic they can think of but on the flip side this ensures there will be a few gags for almost everyone. Some of the voicework falls short (the Director Rianda as the pre-teen son is a baffling decision) and there are some very contrived key moments, but the heart of the tale works and the defective robots and Monchi are great fun!

A kid's movie that plays exactly the way you think. A family on the rocks must band together to save the word from social media/phones/21st century technology is bad and soul-sucking blah blah blah.... Netflix rounds up a star studded cast of voices, but it's the robots: our Queen Olivia Colman, Fred Armisen and Conan O'Brien who bring the spark to proceedings. It's not enough to save a lazily plotted movie that's been done to death before. (-21)

Between Spider-Verse and this, I am now more excited for Sony Animation's future releases than those of any other studio, even Pixar. Fantastically weird and funny, with a cleverly-scripted story and great set-up & pay-off. The giant Furby has got to be the best joke of the year. A family film that is joyously unabashed to take storytelling risks and experiment with the medium; risks that thankfully fully paid off.
