FANTASTIC new exploration for the Planet Express team
2 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Upon the very first viewing of this movie, Futurama fans ought to be willing to pony up the 25 bucks a pop for the next 2 installments in this series without even thinking twice. Even more so than the Simpsons theatrical feature, this should stand as Matt Groening's best usage of the full-length format to tell a story that is at once compelling and completely hilarious.

Bender steals the show, we all knew it would happen, but the real highlight here is the film's conclusion, which breaches the small-screen feel of the Futurama series to enter the realm of great space epics, with a final outcome that would rival any of Douglas Adams' wildest dreams. Critics of this film should realize that an animated movie isn't going to bring you ultimate happiness, but rather you should enjoy the simple message this film presents, and think twice about the story's moral questions about life, the universe and everything...

Fantastic movie, and some of the best jokes we've ever seen from Philip J. Fry and crew. Can't wait for the next one...
