What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that The Mitchells vs. the Machines is an animated adventure written and directed by Gravity Falls veterans Michael Rianda and Jeff Rowe. It deals with issues surrounding family dynamics and the dangers (and benefits) of technology. The Mitchell family (voiced by Abbi Jacobsen, Maya Rudolph, Danny McBride, and Rianda) sets out on a cross-country road trip just as a new AI technology decides to capture and contain humanity. Expect scenes of peril and violence/destruction, but much of it is played for humor. The Mitchells are in danger of being hurt or abducted a few times, and robots use built-in weapons to attack and destroy. But the language never gets stronger than "idiot" and "foolish," and there's no substance use or sexual content (though adults hug affectionately, and dating between main character Katie and her friend Jade is mentioned). Consumerism/product placement includes references to YouTube and a scene in which menacing Furby toys and smart Roomba-like vacuums turn evil (and ultimately awaken a giant, weaponized Furby). Families who watch together can have conversations about the pros and cons of technology and screen-time limits, as well as themes related to healthy communication and opportunities for family bonding.
