Running for 12 seasons, and still going, Bob’s Burgers first aired in 2011
it came from the animation arm of Fox Studios, the same studio that had so
much success with The Simpson’s and Family Guy. Whilst never gaining the
same following as The Simpsons and Family Guy the powers at Fox obviously
decided that there was enough of an audience out there that a full film was
justified. Certainly you can watch The Bob’s Burger Movie with little or no
knowledge of the show but whether anyone with little or no knowledge of the
show will actually want to spend money to see it in a cinema, especially
here in the UK where it’s less well known than in the US, is open for
The plot, which does feel every bit like a 30 minute show padded out to
feature film length, sees an enormous sink hole opening up in front of
Bob’s Burger and blocking access to the Belchers restaurant at what should
be their busy summer period.
Whilst Bob and his wife Linda (voiced by H. Jon Benjamin and John Roberts)
try and keep the business going the kids set about solving the mystery of a
skeleton that is found in the sinkhole.
The Bob’s Burger Movie is pretty much just an extended episode of the TV
series with some not so memorable musical numbers added in for some
padding. If you’re a fan of the show then you might find something to
One for fans only.
