The most important thing I can tell you about Next Gen is that my kids loved it. The movie follows the unlikely friendship between a lonely girl, Mai, and a robot, 7723, that's part of a nefarious, top-secret program. Yes, it shares many similarities with The Iron Giant (also available on Netflix). No, it's not as good as that Brad Bird film. But the relationship between Mai and 7723 is charming, and Charlyne Yi and John Krasinski's performances carry the movie. The rest of the cast – including Jason Sudeikis, Michael Pena, Constance Wu, and David Cross – does fine work and everyone hits the notes when called upon.
