The Belcher family is who you want to spend your summer with!
“Bob’s Burgers,” an animated comedy on Fox, has been going on for 12 seasons and counting. It’s now finally getting its turn on the big screen. It’s always nerve wracking when a tv show attempts a film, but the “Bob’s Burgers” writers Loren Bouchard and Nora Smith did not fail.
“The Bob’s Burgers Movie,” directed by Bouchard and Bernard Derriman, is a hilarious mystery that’ll keep you entertained from beginning to end. The main plot that sees the Belcher family’s restaurant in peril is wonderful, but the side stories are just as great. You can tell no detail was neglected.
Everything was created with care for the show and that’s so refreshing to see. The family dynamic, as well as the separate relationships within the family are just written so wonderfully. There is something in each character that everyone can relate to. While there is a lot of inside jokes for longtime fans of the TV show, even if you’ve never seen the show you’ll feel right at home with the Belchers.
“The Bob’s Burgers Movie” is simply a feel good movie and that’s what we’ve been needing right now. It’s a complete success and I can’t wait to see more of the show.
