"Somewhere in the 80s something went horribly wrong..."
This line really resonated with me as I am looking at US, Bumblebee and other 2019 films trying to either to go back to the 80s to rewrite history or relive it. Why? What happened then that triggered a warp in the time space continuum to the postmodern un-reality we experience today? HMMM?....
When I first started to watch thins I was thinking "here is another one of those trying too hard to be quirky and funny films..." but then the humor was really getting spot on...it is her wedding and no one got the "emails"....everyone is on the phone in the car on the way up to the Camp...and I phones are the vortex to hell. And somehow a Teddy Ruxpin has all the answers....a Gen X Valentine...! With the same commentary I try religiously to bestow upon anyone who will listen! The acting was great because all the characters who initially were superficially caricature-ish...ended up to have surprisingly great development and arcs...so we actually care about them. Finally perhaps I am also biased because I can painfully relate to carefully panning an event that is important to me and no one involved got my emails I sent out or are as enthusiastic as I am..(this festival excluded...obviously!) Just come see this film...great schlock...great 80s style...and great humor.

When the iPhone X came out, my phone looked like a blocky piece of crap. That feeling inspired this song. It's about a prince who desperately wants to keep up with the latest technology.
