It's a film that explores the meaning of friendship in a modernized world, considering how access to the web is both isolating and social at the same time. As scientists work on advancing AI and proxy robotic friends we live in a world that has to truly ask questions like "what is a friend," "how are friendships changing," and "what will the future of friendship be?" I wish the story in Ron's Gone Wrong was as brilliant as the questions the film poses, but the story is still cute and watchable and I really enjoyed the movie.
