Most Of All, The Mitchells Vs. The Machines Is About A Family Spending Time Together
The main reason why The Mitchells vs. the Machines is deserving of a spot in the family movie night rotation is the fact it is a story about a family spending time together and trying to save humanity in the process. And while my family has never had to face an army of the robots and defeat a temperamental computer program all while getting over our differences, we had a grand old time watching the Mitchells do that.
Over the course of their journey, the Mitchells learn that you don’t always have to be perfect, get along all the time, or really understand one another totally to get along as a family and save the day. And that’s my key takeaway from The Mitchells vs. the Machines and why it’s not only one of the best movies on Netflix, but one of the best family movies around.
