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.

Dwight Conrad: [after the Professor activates the crystal's 'high frequency stink'] Dude, who ripped an egger?
Cubert Farnsworth: [accusingly] He who smelt it, dealt it.
Dwight Conrad: Yeah? Well, he who denied it, supplied it!
Cubert Farnsworth: He who articulated it, particulated it!
Dwight Conrad: He who refuted it, tooted it!
Cubert Farnsworth: [after a slight pause] Stalemate.

Poor, Lazy Writing..
16 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie series started off just "OK" with "Bender's Big Score", then I felt a little hope seeing "Beast With a Billion Backs"..

Sadly however, "Bender's Game" and "Into The Wild Green Yonder" are both in-cohesive, boring, and generally consist of the kind of lazy writing you wouldn't expect from a show like Futurama.

One of the biggest problems is certainly trying to produce a full-length movie out of a 20-minute cartoon. It became very clear to me that the writers lost interest and/or didn't have enough quality content to make these films, and the movies suffered big time.

As some other people mentioned, there was way too much crude and sexual humor that just didn't fit the series. The references to Lord of the Rings and Star Wars weren't at all funny or entertaining.. Just more lazy writing.

Ultimately, this film was barely worth the time it took to watch it. I was actually falling asleep during this movie and "Into The Wild Green Yonder". Drawn out drivel..
