    Honestly does explore some pretty engaging concepts, but only very shallowly so. Not as good as your typical episode of the show. Could have either leaned a bit more into the jokes and just been fun, or properly explored the relationships and notions raised, and been kind of compelling. Instead it's neither.

    Fragmented story featuring mainly a monster with tentacles controlling the humans while robots trying to defeat it. Subplot including Keith and Amy getting married, Calculon having amnesia and Fry's polygamous girlfriend. Not the best out of the 4 films but it's acceptable.

    The Beast with a Billion Backs is a hilarious and weird movie of Futurama. Many laughs are here and the characters are at their best, and I loved the guest appearance from David Cross.

    Poorly written, incoherent, and really not all that funny.
