A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this movie.
Lots of antisocial behavior, such as stealing, killing, threatening, and jealousy.
Positive Role Models
Fry means well, and friends are there for each other when it matters, but there's also lots of antisocial behavior, such as stealing, killing, threatening, and jealousy.
Violence & Scariness
Considerable cartoonish violence. The bodies of executives are ground up and used for a variety of purposes. Hermes' head gets cut off several times and occasionally sewn back on. Bender cuts off Farnsworth's hand. A blast kills a dog. Bender kills Fry. Robot Santa tries to kill the crew. A ship falls on Zoidberg.

Sex, Romance & Nudity
The crew visits a nude beach planet. An alien's genitalia is on his head. The alien uses Fry's penis to sign for delivery. Hermes' wife leaves him for another man and makes out with him. Some sexual innuendo (when Hermes' head is sewn on backward, an alien remarks, "Your tail is wagging."). Leela and Lars kiss. Fry discovers his girlfriend in bed and making out with another man.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this movie offshoot of the Futurama animated TV show is raunchier and more violent than the show. There's more sexual content (visiting a nude beach planet, aliens with penises on their heads, and other penis gags) and violent moments (bodies are ground up, hands and heads are cut off).

Is It Any Good?
First off, the premise of a race of spam-spreading aliens is hilarious. So are the jabs at Fox (a miracle elixir is made of "Box" executives killed and ground up). And some of the antics are even funny. But a lot of the action is overly complicated and stupid. After all, if Bender had failed to simply put the tattoo on Fry's butt at the end, the calamity of the film never would have happened. Long-time viewers of the show are likely to love the nostalgia of the film -- it includes almost every long-running joke in the show's history -- but like The Simpsons Movie, it can seem more like a few episodes pasted together.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
