Ron's Gone Wrong is a Film that Gets it Right

We'll start with the Disclaimer – Yes, we did receive complimentary tickets to the advance screening of this movie, but this just means we're able to give you our opinion of the film.

In this brand new animated film, we come to learn that the Pudowski is struggling, They have a warehouse of novelty items that are not selling and they are usually hacking the grid to get electricity. This takes a toll on young Barney Pudowski. He is not very social with the other kids at Nonsuch Middle School, and when the B. Bot craze takes over he realizes his social status both online and offline won't improve unless he has B.Bot of his own. While the other kids are live-streaming, gaining likes and having video-game battles through their B. Bots, Barney gets sequestered to the Buddy Bench each recess and he finds it humiliating. When his family learns of the teasing that Barney is receiving, they find their own way to get B. Bot for Barney.  The problem is there is something a little off with this B. Bot.

“Ron’s Gone Wrong” is the story of Barney, a socially awkward middle-schooler and Ron, his new walking, talking, digitally-connected device, which is supposed to be his “Best Friend out of the Box.” Ron’s hilarious malfunctions set against the backdrop of the social media age, launch them into an action-packed journey in which boy and robot come to terms with the wonderful messiness of true friendship. “Ron’s Gone Wrong” features the voices of Zach Galifianakis, Jack Dylan Grazer, Olivia Colman, Ed Helms, Justice Smith, Rob Delaney, Kylie Cantrall, Ricardo Hurtado, Marcus Scribner, Thomas Barbusca.
We think this is a great film for families. It has funny moments, with lessons mixed in along the way. It touches on topics like data privacy, economic status, and empathy for others. Each lesson is learned through the lens of friendship and how Barney teaches Ron his B. Bot to be his friend but then Ron gets it right when it comes to how Barney should approach friendship as well. Ron's Gone Wrong is sure to have you talking about the film and your own family values when it comes to screen time, encouraging individuality and treatment of others.

Ron's Gone Wrong will be released in theatres on October 22, 2021 and we hope after seeing it you will share your thoughts on the film in the comments!
