The Willoughbys

The Willoughbys (2020)

This overly exuberant animated comedy about a dysfunctional family is the feature film version of a Skittles “Taste the Rainbow” commercial, meaning it’s colorful and often so absurd that it doesn’t make any sense. There are some clever, creative bits to be sure, but it would have worked better as a twelve-minute television episode on Nickelodeon than it does as a 90-minute movie. With the voices of Will Forte, Maya Rudolph, Alessia Cara, Terry Crews, and Ricky Gervais. Directed by Kris Pearn, Cory Evans, and Rob Lodermeier.

Rating: 2.5 out of 5.
