The core of the tale is a friendship between a pair of loveable rejects. There’s 13-year-old Barney Pudowski who just can’t click with the other kids in his school. Then there’s Ron (Zach Galifianakis in ‘sooth’ mode), the ‘B*Bot’ which literally fell off the back of a truck.
Because he can’t connect to the internet, he’s a free-spirited naïf who must learn about the world through Barney, with the old-school help of a corkboard and a bunch of Post-it notes.
“Visualised with verve, it's a zingy, mercilessly funny satire on how devices, with their ever-so-friendly interfaces, have in fact become our despots.” The Telegraph
