(2021) (voices of Jack Dylan Grazer, Zach Galifianakis) (PG)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Computer-Animated Comedy: A friendless boy must contend with receiving a defective, personal assistant robot.
Barney Pudowski (voice of JACK DYLAN GRAZER) is a friendless boy who lives with his dad, Graham (voice of ED HELMS), and grandma, Donka (voice of OLIVIA COLEMAN). Unlike every other kid at his school -- including social media star Savannah (voice of KYLIE CANTRALL) and class bully Rich (voice of RICARDO HURTADO) -- Barney doesn't own a personal assistant robot known as a B-bot.
They're manufactured by tech company Bubble and are designed by programmer and CEO Marc (voice of JUSTICE SMITH) who's grown the company to a massive success from what Andrew (voice of ROB DELANEY) started in his garage years ago. The B-bots have been flawless companions as long as they haven't been damaged in any way. But that's what Graham unknowingly ends up buying Barney for his birthday and at first, the boy is delighted to turn on Ron (voice of ZACH GALIFIANAKIS).
But the robot doesn't work properly from the get-go, and when it ends up going after Rich and two other bullies, Andrew decides to take over the company and have the B-bot destroyed. Despite initially being more frustrated with Ron than enjoying his company, Barney begins to accept the B-bot as his friend and thus does what he can to protect him.
- WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
- Probably (it's about kids and robots).
- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG
- For some rude material, thematic elements and language.
