Trivia:
There is no such thing as "harpsichord wax".See more »
Goofs:
Incorrectly regarded as goofs: During Nibbler's flashback (which takes place 36 years ago, i.e. now), Mom is seen with her adult sons. However, the flashback only starts 36 years ago; by the time we see Mom with her sons time has moved ahead to be just before Leela first encounters Nibbler. This is made clear by Nibbler meeting Leela as he emerges from the bushes where he carried out the "evacuation" that Mom and sons saw, moments earlier.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?

Poor, Lazy Writing.., 16 September 2010
Author: stevcoll from United States

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..
