Set in a world where every kid has a best friend the comes in a box,
basically a walking , talking digitally connected device that looks like
one of those small plastic toy holders that you get out of a vending
machine, well nearly every kid has one. Sadly the one kid who doesn’t have
one, or any friends for that matter, is poor Barney (Jack Dylan Grazer).
Feeling sorry for his son on his birthday his father buys him a “Best
Friend out of the Box.”, unfortunately it’s one that’s fell off the back of
a lorry and as Barney finds out, doesn’t work right. With errors in its
memory, Ron as Barney calls him, takes on a life of its own.
Ron’s Gone Wrong feels like a poor man’s WALL- E, jokes about cyber
snooping and spyware will no doubt go over the target audiences heads, dark
in its theming Ron’s Gone Wrong is a mildly entertaining animated movie ,
but no more than that.
