The Mitchells vs. The Machines

The Mitchells vs. The Machines ★★★

The Mitchells vs. The Machines felt very contrived to me with the storyline. However, there was some great animation (including some slick streets later in the film) and great acting as well. I sort of saw the Katie memes before I saw the film. I didn't feel much of a connection because that, the dad storyline, and the LGBT relationship at the end seems thrown in to serve political correctness and the "cool factor" (neither of which really go hand in hand anyway).

But anyway, now I know how my cat feels about Grimes. She ran out of the room when "California" played.

Vegan alert:
-Katie's burger talks to her
-Dog eats the burger
-Dad demonstrates setting a trap for wild game which comes back to bite him
-Hamburgers make family throw up

Vegan points:
No animals were harmed in the making of the documentary (that the Mitchells filmed)

Available to watch on: Netflix
