Where I Got It: Netflix

A quirky, dysfunctional family's road trip is upended when they find themselves in the middle of the robot apocalypse and suddenly become humanity's unlikeliest last hope.

I feel like I was never going to watch this. The first time was at my friend's house....I came in near the end. The next time I fell asleep and woke up near the end AGAIN. Third time Netflix stopped working after a few minutes. Ugh. Fourth time was two months later....FINALLY watched it. 

The story follows a quirky and dysfunctional family. They decide to take a road trip, but they find themselves in a mess and in the middle of a robot apocalypse. They have to push past their issues and save humanity. 

Oooo the struggles I had trying to just watch the beginning of this. I love the ending. Especially the scene with the furbies. OMG I die laughing anytime I think of it or see it. I've honestly. They kill me. The youths will never fully understand how scary and creepy these little things are....but this would happen if the robots decided it was time for the humans to be killed. 

So yes, the ending was good. The furbies are the best characters. What about the beginning and middle? 

Both good. Worth the struggles I had. ;) 

The family members are for sure dysfunctional and they are quirky. It was nice to see them deal with their differences (and they are all super different so I can see why they have the issues they have). 

I really had no issues. This was a nice movie and I can see myself watching it again in the future. It was quirky, funny, and had some nice healing moments with the family.

Issues? MMM. I really don't have any that I can think of.  

Oooo! The cast was good!! They had some fun voice actors. Perfect. 

In the end, this was freakin' cute and funny and you can take a few lessons away from this. Fun characters who have to deal with their issues and saving the world. Def a fun movie for the whole family. Lots of laughs and feels. I'll give this 5 stars.

I hadn't heard of the movie until a couple weeks ago. We watched it and it was pretty cute. And Furbies - so freaking scary.

Mary, it really was!

Jen, those Furbies give me nightmares!
