Goofs

Cubert Farnsworth and Dwight Conrad are seen playing Dungeons and Dragons using a dodecahedron (12-sided dice). The dodecahedron is used only for damage done by greataxes and barbarian hit dice. It's been claimed that the correct dice used should have been an icosahedron (20-sided dice), ultimately the rules are dictated by the Dungeon Master (in this case, Dwight). See more »

The best Futurama 'film' so far...
1 November 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have been impressed with the other Futurama 'films' (for wont of a better word), yet none of them achieved what this one did, the main thing I look for when watching the Futurama cartoon: laugh out loud comedy. And this has that - though not wall-to-wall, it contains enough clever plot writing to satisfy the most adamant of cartoon fans. The CGI far excels the majority of former episodes, although Futurama has always enjoyed a very shiny veneer of pure 'cool'. The character development was handled with far more maturity than in the previous longer installments, and focused on characters which were previously overlooked. In addition, the popular culture references were intelligent, amusingly accurate and, above all else, integral to the plot. No part of this film felt unnecessary - every moment of the outing felt it was necessary to the overall shape of the piece.

In conclusion, this is by far the best longer-addition Futurama produced to this day. In fact, I'm only sad I saw an advanced viewing, because now I have longer to wait for the next production! The writers have proved they can provide fresh material and give it to the viewers in a non-patronising, intelligent but not pretentious manner.

Bring on the next installement!
