Trivia

In the group therapy scene at the robot asylum, when Roberto is talking about his childhood (and how he was designed to be an insane robot), there's a rounded radio-like device to his left. The radio is a minor tribute to Valve's Portal game, in which an insane robot is the main antagonist - the rounded radio features at several points in the game. See more »

Goofs

In Bender's Game, dark matter is all done in the form of round pellets, and all of it is mined from Alaska (Mombil has a monopoly on it). In a previous episode _"Futurama" The Birdbot of Ice-Catraz (2001)_, there is liquid dark matter from Columbia. However, all the dark matter is in the form of round pellets (considering where it came from), so it would make a lot of sense if Columbia was the place the dark matter pellets went to be liquefied, not where it was mined.

Quotes

The Great Wizard Greyfarn: Yes, tis a powerful object in both our worlds. If you fail to destroy it in yours, perhaps you were brought here that you might have have a second chance!
Frydo: So this land is real?
The Great Wizard Greyfarn: Oooh dreadfully real. If you die here you'll really be dead. But instead of science, we believe in crazy hocus-pocus. It's like Kansas.
Leegola: God help us.

Crazy Credits

After the end credits, the film is dedicated to Dungeons and Dragons creator Gary Gygax, who died during production. After this, a clip of him from his guest appearance in the second season episode "Anthology of Intrest I" appears with Gygax saying, "Who wants to play Dungeons and Dragons for the next Quadrillion years?"

A good film but Futurama was much better on television
24 November 2008 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

I have already said it on another commentary but I like repeating it : I had an enormous admiration for the TV programme Futurama because it shook sarcastic,incisive and irreverent humor with intelligent concepts of sci-fi,exotic characters and a well structured mythology.That twist resulted on one of the best comedies the TV has ever produced.Unfortunately,this series was very underrated,and after four seasons of declining ratings,Futurama was cancelled in mid-2003.But,the surprising DVD sales of the series and the success of the repetitions of the series on channels like Cartoon Network,made the executives from Fox to re-considerate their (stupid) decision and now,we can enjoy the rebirth of Futurama,not on TV,but on movies made straight-to-DVD.But,as a huge fan of Futurama,I have to say Futurama : Bender's Big Score and Futurama : The Beast with a Billion Backs,in spite of being funny and entertaining,did not leave me completely satisfied.It seems that the creators of Futurama perfectly dominated the half an hour format (22 minutes without the commercials) but they have found difficulties in telling fluid and natural stories in the format of a full-length film.That problem is still on Futurama : Bender's Game.Minute by minute,Bender's Game made me laugh pretty much and it kept me entertained.But the whole does not result totally satisfactory,because the film suffers from lack of cohesion and from a fractured narrative.At the end of the first half hour,there is a sudden change of tone and it seems a totally different movie from there...in other words,the film keeps being funny and entertaining but that sudden change makes the film a little bit forced.I think the best format for Futurama was the one for TV but I have to be grateful for back to have Futurama.As the other Futurama films,Bender's Game is entertaining but I expected more from it.Still,I can recommend it because I had a good time watching it.
