The Mitchells vs the Machines (2021)

Directed by Mike Rianda

Starring Abbie Jacobson, Dannie McBride, Maya Rudolph,

In all honesty, I had no idea what was the film about but I just saw a chance for a nice family film night.

The story is about the Mitchell family, they are a unique family. Katie is into making films and her father is scared she won’t succeed and that had a strain on their relationship. When Katie gets accepted into college, her father decides to make it a road trip to spend more time with his daughter.

What I look for in this film is that as a family we have fun. The movie at least for me worked in that sense. It has a lot of funny moments and my daughter laughed a lot and that is all that matters to me. The story is not the most original, but the style of film and the characters helped to get past that. It had a nice father/daughter story that gave an emotional aspect to the film.

The movie is long but it had a lot of fun moments. I think the movie achieves the purpose of giving a family a movie to see together.
