Goofs:
Incorrectly regarded as goofs: While playing Dungeons and Dragons, after one of the players rolls a 20, Qubert announces he does 2x damage with his pole-arm to a Gelatinous Cube. Whilst in Dungeons and Dragons, Gelatinous Cubes are often immune to critical damage, ultimately the rules are dictated by the Dungeon Master (in this case, Dwight).See more »

FAQ

Why are Fry and Leela the only two people that seem out of place in the fantasy world when many characters were in the room that had the two crystals?

Another step down for the Futurama movies., 7 November 2008
Author: DarthPaul85 from Maine

Let me put it this way, this movie was to "Billion backs" as "Billion backs" was to "Big score." The first movie was great, the second was just OK, and this one is actually kind of bad.

I hate to speak ill of anything Futurama, but fans should keep their expectations in check. The writing here is different...it's not the same style...the jokes feel lazy. Even the personalities aren't written in full force, you keep feeling like everybody is half-asleep or something.

lastly, the plot (or rather, "plot") is the worst by far. What had the potential to be a great economical satire (and failing that, even a jab at D&D and Lord of the Rings), completely lacks any focus or high level of comedic insight. As Futurama fans, we've come to expect an interesting story even if the comedy fails, but this may be the first time the story itself was so poorly implemented.

So what do we have left? Well, it's still the characters and settings we know and love already. Admittedly, the off-handed comments by the characters are still quite funny, and a handful of their social commentaries do hit the mark, as do a small number of the "regular" jokes.

Anyway, If you're a Futurama fan, you really owe it to yourself to keep up with these movies. At best, perhaps this is just a change in style that will take multiple viewings to appreciate. Nevertheless, I just want to say this: "We're Futurama fans; we expected better."
