Netflix Releases New Clip and Free Family Watch Guide for ‘The Willoughbys’

An open house goes horribly wrong in latest clip from Kris Pearn’s hilarious new film; plus download fun recipes, drawing guides, Bingo sheets and other fun family activity guides.

To support today’s premiere of Kris Pearn’s hilarious new animated feature, The Willoughbys, those wacky folks at Netflix have just released a new film clip, “Home (Not) For Sale,” along with a free Family Watch Guide filled with five different downloadable sets of digital files guaranteed to remind your loved ones that on occasion, you actually come through for them with something of value.

When is an “Open House” not an “Open House?” For the eccentric Willoughby family, it’s when an eager, chronically smiling real-estate agent realizes she’s just shown a line of potential buyers a house that’s definitely “Not for Sale.” Sign or no sign.

But, that’s not all! Check out The Willoughbys Family Watch Guide! Below, you’ll find links to five zip files filled with all sorts of fun activities the entire family can do together before, during and after the show!

In the film, as they long for a normal family in the face of prolonged parental neglect steeped in utter selfishness and outrageous British accents, the Willoughby children hatch a sneaky, diabolical plan to send their mom and dad on a dangerous, around-the-world adventure “to die for.” As you might imagine, any hair-brained animated feature film scheme concocted by cute, well-meaning children, must, by definition, come up a tad short.

Directed by Pearn (Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2), who also wrote the film along with Mark Stanleigh, The Willoughbys stars Will Forte, Maya Rudolph, Alessia Cara, Terry Crews, Martin Short, Jane Krakowski, Séan Cullen and Ricky Gervais as the Cat.
