Ron’s Gone Wrong cast and plot
From directors Sarah Smith and Jean-Philippe Vine, Ron’s Gone Wrong didn’t set the world on fire with its box office haul when it opened opposite the Denis Villanueve epic, Dune (2021). However, the film is “certified fresh” on Rotten Tomatoes with an 80% Tomatometer critics’ score and a 94% audience score. This warm critical and audience reception was due in large part to the talented voice cast.
Ron’s Gone Wrong is led by Jack Dylan Grazer, who plays Barney, an awkward and lonesome middle-schooler eager to start a friendship with his new robot buddy. Ron — Barney’s malfunctioning B-bot — is voiced by funnyman Zach Galifianakis. Ed Helms stars as Graham, Barney’s father.
