A fractured water main creates an enormous sinkhole right in front of Bob’s Burgers, blocking the entrance indefinitely and ruining the Belchers’ plans for a successful summer.
While Bob and Linda struggle to keep the business afloat, the kids try to solve a mystery that could save their family’s restaurant. As the dangers mount, these underdogs help each other find hope and fight to get back behind the counter, where they belong…
“The film is rife with the puns and gags for which the show is known, although some of the film’s best jokes are delivered entirely straight-faced, like when one supporting character randomly shares that he’s never eaten a meal outside before, or the wharf’s celebratory anniversary banner reads, “80 years of this!” It’s a charmer — let’s just put a bit more spice on the next one.” IndieWire
“While the Movie is a joyous, juicy feast for Bob’s Burgers fans, it is self-contained enough that newcomers won’t feel alienated. The characters are drawn so perfectly – both literally and literarily – that after a few minutes we know exactly who everyone is and what motivates them, a rarity with many modern films that seem to enjoying hiding their true intentions until the last possible minute.” Screen Anarchy
In the United States, 20th Century Studios will release The Bob’s Burgers Movie theatrically on May 27, 2022.
