Bring home ‘The Bob’s Burgers Movie’

Category: Blu-ray's and DVD's

The Bob’s Burgers Movie is an animated feature film that includes all of the characters from the beloved series. In the movie the Belcher family is struggling to save their beloved restaurant. With the rent and no signs of the bank lending them money, they must hustle to sell enough hamburgers in a week to make enough money to survive. But all of a sudden a sinkhole forms smack dab in front of the restaurant. What else can happen?

Well, for starters, little Louise accidentally discovers a skeleton at the bottom of the sinkhole. So the kids begin a journey to solve the mystery of who was this person and what happened to him/her and why did he end up buried way down in the earth?

When it is revealed that the dead body belongs to Cotton Candy Dan, one of the carnival workers, the Belcher’s landlord is arrested for the murder. But the kids think he is innocent. Can they find the real murdered?

While this murder mystery is unraveling, all kinds of antics arise with the family. There are plenty of fun and dangerous aspects to this mystery, but it is all done with the love and affection of the family members.

In the end, everything turns out well for the Belchers and their restaurant. Plus, Louise loses her fears, Tina becomes brave enough to tell the boy she likes that she likes him, and Gene and his band get a small gig. So all’s well that ends well.

This is a cute film for followers of the TV series. It is peppered with songs and the love of this family. While it is rated PG-13 for rude/suggestive material and language, if your family already watches the series then there is nothing new in that regard.

Bonus features include some deleted scenes and animation extras. There is also a featurette about the making of the film.

The Bob’s Burgers series has been running on Fox since 2014 with a TV-14 rating.

The movie is available on digital, Blu-ray, and DVD.
