I might be late to the party for this one, but it is one I need to talk about. If you are looking for a cute kids movie you can enjoy with your kids, look no further. If you don’t have kids, this is a great movie to watch regardless.
This movie gives off “Big Hero 6”, but it has enough of its own charm that I wouldn’t count it as a clone. It is no “Next Gen”. This movie focuses on a friendship that blossoms between a boy, Barney, and his defective B Bot, Ron. It’s fun, it’s cute, it’s smart, and it’s heartwarming. They do make the argument of how social media can be isolating, but it isn’t abrasive or overbearing. I think they handle the topic very well in a format that is entertaining for everyone.
The characters are likable and memorable. The story is enjoyable. I fear that I don’t do this movie justice because I enjoyed it so much. The point is, if you haven’t seen it, watch it. If you have watched it, it comes to Disney+ and HBO Max December 15, 2021.
