Trivia

The heads of Jon Stewart (of The Daily Show (1996)), Apu (from The Simpsons (1989)) and Eric Cartman (from South Park (1997)) can be seen among the many unidentified heads in the head museum. Stewart and Cartman's heads serve as an homage to how this film was produced with the intention of it later being split up into four episode-segments and aired on Comedy Central instead of Fox, the former home of Futurama in its TV series form.

Goofs

In "The Devil's Hands Are Idle Playthings," after Bender made a deal with the Robot Devil and deafened Leela, Leela made a deal with the devil to restore her hearing, which he did with Calculon's ears. In Bender's Big Score, however, she has recovered her hearing and has no robotic ears. However, it has been at least two years from "The Devil's Hands are Idle Playthings," making it entirely probable that she could have received enough treatment to no longer need the robotic ears.

Alternate Versions

This direct-to-DVD movie was the 1st of 4 to be released after the tv series was cancelled at the end of season 5. When the series was to be revived on a different network, this movie was split into 4 parts, each part equal to the usual length of a tv episode, and shown first as season 6 episodes 1 through 4. The other 3 movies were also similarly split and formed the remainder of season 6, 16 episodes in all. Finally, the new episodes made specifically for tv followed as season 7. This practice was identically used for later tv syndication and streaming services such as Hulu. See more »

Bender Scores Big.
28 November 2007 | by sallyfifthSee all my reviews

The first of four Futrama DVDs gets a lot of things right. First of all it remembers why people liked the show in the first place from the oddball space aliens to the shipping romance (kind of an awesome pun for a show about international delivery agents) to the geektastic sci-fi humor and low brow slapstick. It's got everything, again. Only problem is, it's just not up to the series' admittedly high standards. It certainly hits more than misses though and repeat viewings reward with humour you may have missed or not fully been prepared for the first time around.

The plot is hilariously complicated featuring Nudist Spamming Alien Invaders, Time Travel Hijinx and the convoluted relationships between stupid men and the women they love.

Though the box features Bender prominently- our favorite Bending Latino Hearthrob plays second fiddle to a Fry/Leela romance love triangle that comes to a satisfying conclusion. There are so many returning characters from the series' run that very few of them have time to get comfortable before they are whisked away and only a handful have time to actually be funny (though far too many of them bomb) Its actually the little moments that get the biggest laughs.

It's good to have the crew of Planet Express back, even if our second date wasn't quite as hot as our first one.
