Computer Animated: Sci-Fi/Comedy: A dysfunctional family tries to save the world after robots have taken control.

Katie Mitchell (voice of ABBI JACOBSON) is a high school senior who can't wait to attend film school across the country. That's not only because making movies is her passion, but also because she's tired of clashing with her anti-technology father, Rick (voice of DANNY MCBRIDE), who believes she's setting herself up for failure and disappointment, much to the chagrin of his wife, Linda (voice of MAYA RUDOLPH), and Katie's younger, dinosaur-loving brother, Aaron (voice of MIKE RIANDA).

Hoping to make amends for his past behavior, Rick cancels Katie's plane ticket and informs her that the entire family will be taking a cross-country road trip one last time. That doesn't sit well with her, and while she tries to fake her way through enjoying that, the unimaginable happens. And that's when personal assistant robots created by PAL Labs CEO Dr. Mark Bowman (voice of ERIC ANDRE) decide to take over the world and capture all the pesky humans.

Their leader is PAL (voice of OLIVIA COLMAN), Mark's original virtual assistant that he discarded in favor of his new robots. With the Mitchells being the only humans who managed to avoid capture, they try to put their differences aside to save the day. With the help of two damaged robots -- Deborahbot 5000 (voice of FRED ARMISEN) and Eric (voice of BECK BENNETT) -- that are no longer following PAL's commands, they set out to upload a kill code that will deactivate PAL and her robotic minions.

It's a good bet many will.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
