The Willoughbys film follows a group of children who are unfortunately neglected by their parents. Their parents would rather ignore their children than have any type of interaction with them. The children decide to send their self-absorbed parents on a trip that will enable the children to search out a better family for themselves. Luckily, these children have a fun-loving nanny who is ready to go on their adventure with them.

Alessia Cara voices the oldest daughter, Jane, while Will Forte voices the son, Tim, and Vincent Tong voices the twins, who are both named Barnaby as their parents didn’t take the time to give them individual names.

Ricky Gervais voices the pet cat and serves as the droll narrator and is the executive producer of the film.  They are joined by Maya Rudolph who voices Linda, the children’s loving nanny, and Terry Crews is the candy man, Commander Melanoff. The parents are voiced by Martin Short and Jan Krakowski. So, as you can see, this film has a talented group of actors to portray the characters in this film.
