Plot summary

What is The Mitchells vs. the Machines movie plot?

Here is a short review of "The Mitchells vs. the Machines" movie plot summary.

Katie Mitchell (Abbi Jacobson) is an aspiring filmmaker and noted oddball who often clashes with her dad Rick (Danny McBride) and has recently been accepted into college. The evening before Katie leaves, Rick accidentally destroys Katie's laptop, disappointing her as their connection drifts apart. Together with mom Linda (Maya Rudolph) and younger brother Aaron, Rick takes them on a road trip the next morning for one last bonding experience before Katie goes off to college.
Meanwhile, a highly intelligent AI named PAL (Olivia Colman) turns on her creator Mark Bowman (Eric Andre) after he declares her obsolete and plans to unveil a new line of home robots in her place. She gets all the robots to capture humans worldwide, but the Mitchells manage to avoid capture at a dinosaur-oriented roadstop cafe. After Rick decides for his family to stay put in the cafe for their own safety, they eventually bond with two malfunctioning robots, Eric (Beck Bennett) and Deborahbot, as they guide the Mitchells to use a kill code to shut down PAL and all the robots.
The Mitchells make it to a mall where all the PAL appliances try to kill them once PAL learns that the Mitchells evaded capture. Katie tries to upload the kill code but is stopped after a giant Furby pursues them and is trapped by the family, and it uses a laser to destroy the PAL router before the kill code can fully upload, which shuts the Furby and the PAL appliances down. On the way to Silicon Valley afterwards, Linda reveals to Katie that she and Rick had originally wanted to live in a cabin in the mountains years ago that he had built and had given up, as it was his longtime dream to live in the wilderness.
