Futurama: The Beast with a Billion Backs

More chuckles than belly laughs, more episodic than Big Score, but still worth watching —Andrea Birgers (DVD review...)

Futurama is Back a Billion

The story was predictable, the plot devices were transparent, and frankly, the movie was not that memorable. So why did I like it? Another review I read compared this movie to the romantic comedies of the 1930s, in which the outcome is obvious so the important thing is the characters’ likeability and the audience wanting them to get together in the end. It’s not the destination that’s important but the trip. Michelle Pfeiffer and George Clooney have good chemistry as well as charm. Their kids are precious without being annoying. The movie had enough laughs that I felt like I got my $4.25 worth.
