Disney’s Ron’s Gone Wrong: London Film Festival Review
The protagonist Barney is ignored by other kids in school and hence feels left out. The other kids in the school are too busy with their AI friends called B-Bots. These are cute little egg-shaped robotic pets, almost the size of a cat or dog. They are connected to the internet and can change color and character according to the need(s) of their owner. What do they do? They find people around the owner who have the same taste and need and connect them with their owner. For instance, if you like burgers and there is a person around you who likes the same, the Bot would connect you two!
The movie is an extensive and exaggerated version of today’s internet culture. It also shows how parents of these children are willing to buy them their B-Bots. When Barney finally got his B-Bot, Ron (Zach Galifianakis) he is extremely delighted. However, that’s short-lived. His B-Bot Ron starts malfunctioning. But these flaws make him unique and useful!
