Trivia

In the group therapy scene at the robot asylum, when Roberto is talking about his childhood (and how he was designed to be an insane robot), there's a rounded radio-like device to his left. The radio is a minor tribute to Valve's Portal game, in which an insane robot is the main antagonist - the rounded radio features at several points in the game. See more »

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 »

Quotes

Professor Hubert Farnsworth: Wait. Before my moment of shame, could I give my boy a hug?
[stares at Igner]
Mom: Oh, go ahead. I've never done it, I guess somebody should.

Crazy Credits

After the end credits, the film is dedicated to Dungeons and Dragons creator Gary Gygax, who died during production. After this, a clip of him from his guest appearance in the second season episode "Anthology of Intrest I" appears with Gygax saying, "Who wants to play Dungeons and Dragons for the next Quadrillion years?"

Another step down for the Futurama movies.
7 November 2008 | by (Maine) – See all my reviews

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."
