Could a movie possibly go wrong with Tom Hanks, a teenagerly robot, a dog, and a post-apocalyptic plot? That would be difficult. Of course the plot, the situations, and the sentiment are predictable. But who cares if you’ve got Tom Hanks, a teenagerly robot, a dog, and a post-apocalyptic plot?

This is a classic, family friendly kind of story with a near perfect screenplay. The science, the engineering, and the brilliant (though salvaged) tech are bonuses. The story starts in St. Louis. After that, the irresistible ingredients include a postcard from the Golden Gate Bridge. There’s also a beat-up, heavily modified RV, the steed which carries the three characters on their quest toward the Golden Gate.

I watched it with my cat.

    What did the cat think? Hanks has a few movies out now. We’ve been watching streaming movies for the most part. One I really like is Goliath, or Yellowstone, Longmire. A few French ones from Prime – Lupin or Intouchables. Kate Winslet in Easttown. Haven’t been to a theater since the pandemic.

    Lily likes anything with animals, but cats are her favorite. Next we will try “The Electric Life of Louis Wain.” That’s got cats.
