The Netflix film "The Mitchells vs The Machines" is just the sweetest thing out there. It was one of the only films my entire family could agree on during the holidays. Aside from the lovely story about creativity, reliance on technology, and the love of family, it's got Monchi, played by famous doggie personality Doug the Pug. A film like this is a gift during a really crappy time in the world, but it's not the only gift you're getting.

I Want to Watch Katie's Movies!

Here is the official synopsis for "The Mitchells vs The Machines":

From the humans who brought you the Academy Award-winning "Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse" and "The LEGO Movie" comes "The Mitchells vs. The Machines," an animated action-comedy about an ordinary family who find themselves in the middle of their biggest family challenge yet ... saving the world from the robot apocalypse. No big deal, right? It all starts when creative outsider Katie Mitchell is accepted into the film school of her dreams and is eager to leave home and find "her people," when her nature-loving dad insists on having the whole family drive her to school and bond during one last totally-not-awkward-or-forced road trip. But just when the trip can't get any worse, the family suddenly finds itself in the middle of the robot uprising! Everything from smart phones, to roombas, to evil Furbys are employed to capture every human on the planet. Now it's up to the Mitchells, including upbeat mom Linda, quirky little brother Aaron, their squishy pug, Monchi, and two friendly, but simple-minded robots to save humanity.

If you haven't watched "The Mitchells vs The Machines" yet, please go take a break from your life and do so. I promise you, it will make your day infinitely better.
