THE MITCHELLS vs. THE MACHINES (Netflix Release USA 2021)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.6|5.0 Starsìììì

Mitchells vs. the Machines—such a good experience that it competes with Disney when Disney was just getting started with full length films such as Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. The movie offers heart, meaning, and real comedy. This Netflix animated feature is a huge step forward in the right direction for family entertainment. Along with the movie, Over the Moon, Mitchells vs. the Machines comprises outstanding entertainment that deserves its permanent place in the family home entertainment library.

The Mitchells may not be the high performance, perfect family, but somehow they are the right mix who can handle the rise of the machines.
