Bob’s Burgers movie information

★★★★

The Bob’s Burgers movie is directed by Loren Bouchard and Bernard Derriman, who both won multiple Primetime Emmys for various episodes of the TV show. The series’ voice actors reprise their roles in the film, H. Jon Benjamin as Bob, Kristen Schaal as Louise, Dan Mintz as Tina, John Roberts as Linda, Eugene Mirman as Gene, and Larry Murphy as Teddy. They are joined by the Fischoeder family voiced by David Wain, Zach Galifianakis and Kevin Kline.

As in the TV series, the beloved Belcher family struggles to keep their restaurant open. The events of the film make this even more difficult when a giant sinkhole appears in front of their door, preventing customers from entering. Bob, Linda and their faithful friend Teddy come up with one idea after another to get their food. the people of their seaside community. Meanwhile, the kids have their own plans to save the family business.

The typical hijinks of the television series are magnified on screen in this equally hilarious film. Feature film adaptations of TV series don’t always go smoothly. The movie Bob’s Burgers is a shining example of how well this can be done. The animation and sound quality are fantastic. The voice acting is excellent and it’s good to hear the original voice actors play their typical roles.

Like most animated feature films (especially those based on TV series), it was a musical. If moviegoers aren’t big fans of singing in movies, don’t worry. The songs are few and do not hinder the plot. They are well used and are just the right amount of weirdness for fans and new viewers. The detail given to the dance numbers was evident as each character had their own dance moves. It was organic and unique, with no cut-and-paste arrangements.

The writing reached cinematic heights. Not only were there complications with the business and the sinkhole, but each of the Belcher children also faced their own issues. Can Tina get over her nerves and ask Jimmy Pesto to be her summer boyfriend? Can Gene get his band, the Itty Bitty Ditty Committee, to headline the big summer festival? Will Louise be able to prove to popular children that she is not a baby? And will she be seen without her signature pink bunny ears? There are a surprising number of stakes in this 102-minute film.

Viewers don’t have to watch the show to understand what’s going on. However, fans of the TV series will want to rewatch the film multiple times as there are a plethora of Easter eggs hidden in the background. Bob’s Burgers is a funny, light-hearted film filled with goofy summertime antics, wacky humor, and wonderful one-liners skillfully delivered by the actors.
