Ron's Gone Wrong is a 2021 computer-animated science fiction comedy film directed by Jean-Philippe Vine and Sarah Smith, co-directed by Octavio E. Rodriguez, and written by Peter Baynham and Smith.[4] The film stars an ensemble cast which includes Zach Galifianakis, Jack Dylan Grazer, Ed Helms, Justice Smith, Rob Delaney, Kylie Cantrall, Ricardo Hurtado, and Olivia Colman. It is the first film from Locksmith Animation and was distributed by 20th Century Studios, serving as the company's first animated film to release since the closure of Blue Sky Studios on April 10, 2021.

Ron's Gone Wrong had its world premiere at the 2021 BFI London Film Festival on October 9, 2021, and was theatrically released in the United Kingdom on October 15 and in the United States on October 22, 2021. The film received generally positive reviews from critics.


In the future, tech giant Bubble unveils their latest creation: the B-bot, created by the benevolent CEO Marc Weidell, with the intent to make a robotic buddy that is designed to help make friends and connect to the internet. In the town of Nonsuch, Barney Pudowski is the only middle schooler who does not own a B-bot. His former childhood friends, Savannah, Rich, Noah and Ava have all become absorbed by their individual B-bots. Barney's father Graham, who sells novelties online, and his grandmother Donka come to realize that he does not have any friends and empathize when Rich plays a cruel prank on Barney. They hastily go to the Bubble store, but it closes. Fortunately, a delivery driver had been holding onto a slightly damaged B-bot that had fallen out of his truck and sells it to them.

Barney gets the B-bot as a late birthday present, but upon activating it, quickly learns that it is defective and glitchy. Not wanting to upset his father, he decides to take it back to the Bubble store to get fixed. He ends up running into Rich and his friends who taunt and try to humiliate him. The B-bot begins to fight back, as his safety functions have been turned off, and he and Barney laugh together and run. However, Rich called the police and they along with Graham and Donka are taken to the Bubble store so that the B-bot can be crushed. Not wanting to see him go, Barney secretly rescues him and names him Ron; shortened version of his model number.

Barney and Ron's actions are reported. While Marc is happy to see Ron go against his programming, his COO Andrew views it as bad publicity, but believe he has been destroyed. Barney teaches Ron how to be a good friend and, while hanging out, run into Savannah who tells Ron that he needs to help Barney get friends. Despite Barney telling Savannah not to, she posts Ron's actions online, alerting Bubble. The next day, Ron gets out of the house and tries to get "friends" for Barney, bringing a series of random strangers to school. As Barney gets in trouble, Rich discovers Ron's unlocked function and downloads it, causing all the other B-bots to have their safety features turned off and ending with Savannah getting publicly humiliated.

Andrew warns Marc about the ramifications of the B-bot and sends their entire team of employees to find and get rid of Ron after they manage to locate the owner. Marc sneaks away so that he can meet Ron. Barney is kicked out of school and scolds Ron, but upon returning home, realizes that Ron was truly being a friend and decides to run away with him when Bubble employees come for him. They briefly run into Savannah, still upset over her incident, and tells her that he is hiding in the woods. Barney and Ron end up spending the night there and eventually get lost in the woods. At school, the B-bots have been put under heavy lock and Savannah confides in Rich that they were indirectly responsible for Barney's situation.

Bubble uses their resources to take control of all the B-bots to go looking for Ron and Barney. They manage to hide from them, but due to the cold weather and Barney's asthma, he becomes weak. Ron brings Barney back to civilization just outside the school where Savannah, Rich, Noah and Ava rush out to help him. Barney is taken to the hospital and recuperates, before meeting Marc who is impressed with Ron. However, he fixed his glitches; essentially making him a different B-bot. Barney demands that Marc access the cloud to get his original personality, but Andrew took over the company and locked him out. Barney, Graham, Donka and Marc resolve to break into Bubble HQ to rescue Ron.

Through an elaborate plan, Barney manages to make it to the Bubble database and finds Ron's original data and uploads him back into his body. Seeing that Bubble has direct access to everyone's B-bot, and realizing that everyone is just as lonely as he was, Barney suggests upgrading all the B-bots to have Ron's flaws. However, this means that Ron will be dispersed into the internet. Barney reluctantly says goodbye to Ron as his programming is spread to everyone and Marc blackmails Andrew into giving his position of CEO back after secretly recording him admitting that the B-bots spy on their owners for profit.

Three months later, everyone has a faulty B-bot, but are happy with their wild and weird personalities. Barney, no longer has one, but has become much more sociable and has gotten close with his friends again who are now all on good speaking terms. As they hang out at the "Barney Bench" at recess, a giant Bubble tower that overlooks Nonsuch produces Ron's face, implying that he is still alive.
