Goofs

Bender visits Yancy's house and meets his son, Phillip J. Fry. In The Luck of the Fryrish, Yancy named his son after his brother who disappeared. But Fry travels back to the time right after he got frozen so he never really disappeared in that timeline, so there is no reason for Yancy to name his son after his living brother. However, given the information that Fry learned in Fryrish, combined with the montage showing Fry truly appreciating his family in the new timeline, the idea that Fry had developed a strong relationship with his brother in the years that followed isn't far fetched.

Alternate Versions

This direct-to-DVD movie was the 1st of 4 to be released after the tv series was cancelled at the end of season 5. When the series was to be revived on a different network, this movie was split into 4 parts, each part equal to the usual length of a tv episode, and shown first as season 6 episodes 1 through 4. The other 3 movies were also similarly split and formed the remainder of season 6, 16 episodes in all. Finally, the new episodes made specifically for tv followed as season 7. This practice was identically used for later tv syndication and streaming services such as Hulu. See more »

Good News Everyone!
21 November 2007 | by insertnamehearSee all my reviews

It was a sad day in 2003 when I learned that Futurama had ended. I remember watching the first episode and being hooked straight away. It's not very often humour and genuine sci-fi have been balanced so expertly. But thankfully, like Family Guy before it, Futurama has now been given a new lease of life in the form of 4 direct to DVD movies (to be split into 16 episodes to make up a new season).

When something this great is brought back, there is always the lingering fear that it won't retain the "magic" of the original. But I can confidently say that the magic is back! When Family Guy released Stewie Griffin: The Untold Story, I feel it suffered the problem of seeming too much like an over-long episode, a problem I think that the Simpson's movie also suffered (though both were not without their fair share of laughs). However,Benders Big Score, the first of these new Futurama features FEELS like a movie.

I feel it should appeal to old fans (who will be spoilt by many in-jokes and call backs, as subtle as they may be) and those (and shame on them) who have never encountered Futurama before. The story kicks off with a quick introduction of the characters, and within 5 minutes, old fans will be in familiar territory, and newcomers will be brought up to date. What follows is nearly an hour and a half of laughs, sci-fi action, and romance.

This is a film I would definitely have paid to see at the cinema over the Simpson's movie. I hope that the DVD sales of this and the next 3 films do well, as it was sorely missed.

Welcome back Futurama!
