The Bob's Burgers Movie is a 2022 American animated musical comedy film based on the Fox animated television series Bob's Burgers. It is directed by the series creator Loren Bouchard and series director Bernard Derriman (in their feature directorial debuts), written by Bouchard and Nora Smith, and produced by Janelle Momary-Neely, Bouchard, and Smith. The original voice cast from the series reprises their roles including H. Jon Benjamin, Dan Mintz, Eugene Mirman, Larry Murphy, John Roberts, Kristen Schaal, David Wain, Zach Galifianakis, and Kevin Kline. As the events of the film take place between the 12th and 13th seasons of Bob's Burgers, the plot follows Bob and his family as they struggle to pay their loan after a sinkhole opens in front of their restaurant and affects business, while the kids try to solve the murder of a carnie.
The film premiered at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood on May 17, 2022, and was theatrically released by 20th Century Studios in the United States on May 27, 2022, following previous delays of almost two years due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It received positive reviews from critics and has grossed $34 million worldwide. The film was dedicated to character designer Dave Creek and matte painter Denise Fuller, both of whom died prior to its release.
On October 4, 2017, 20th Century Fox announced that a film adaptation based on the Fox animated series Bob's Burgers was in development, and it was scheduled to be released on July 17, 2020. On October 30, 2017, a newly created 20th Century Fox division, Fox Family, was created to oversee feature film adaptation of its TV shows. This included taking Bob's Burgers over from 20th Century Fox Animation.
Series creator Loren Bouchard had said the film would \"scratch every itch the fans of the show have ever had\", while also appealing to new audiences. On July 18, 2018, Bouchard said that the script was submitted and accepted by the studios. The film is a musical comedy. On September 24, 2020, star H. Jon Benjamin confirmed that work on the film was being done remotely due to the COVID-19 pandemic, while also revealing that recording for the film has already begun, with the cast reprising their roles from the television series.
Animation services were provided by Tonic DNA, Lighthouse Studios, Bento Box Entertainment, Golden Wolf, Yeson Ententainment, Brilliant Pictures, Synergy Animation, Mighty Animation, Dave Enterprises, and Mercury Filmworks. The production team wanted the film to be mostly done through hand-drawn animation because they wanted the visuals to remain similar to the series. The larger budget, time, and animators available to the filmmakers allowed the animation to be more detailed than in the original series, such as adding more light, texture, and shadows into several shots. This film would be the final animation work for both Tuck Tucker and Dale Baer before their deaths on December 22, 2020 and January 15, 2021 respectively. Tucker served as a storyboard revisionist, while Baer provided animation for the film.
Tonic DNA, who were hired due to already working with Bento Box Entertainment on the animated series Central Park, was originally set to work only in musical numbers, before being assigned two additional sequences. Animators at Tonic DNA used both hand-drawn and cutout animation techniques for the film, with both being simulteousnly used in certain sequences, particularly the \"Lucky Ducks\" musical number.
Songs for the film were written by Loren Bouchard and Nora Smith while the original score was conducted, orchestrated and arranged by Tim Davies. The soundtrack album was released on May 27, 2022 and includes three of the four songs featured in the film. The third song was excluded to avoid revealing details of the film's plot; it was added into later reissues, including the vinyl edition.

Bob's Burgers - Il Film, film diretto da Loren Bouchard e Bernard Derriman, è basato sull'omonima serie TV animata, incentrata sulle disavventure della famiglia Belcher, composta da Bob, Linda e i loro figli Tina, Gene e Louise. Bob e Linda gestiscono un'anonima hamburgeria sulla Ocean Avenue di una località balneare senza nome. Quando una conduttura dell'acqua si rompe, si viene a creare proprio di fronte al Bob's Burger una grossa voragine, che vi impedisce l'ingresso. L'incidente crea di versi danni economici ai Belcher, che avevano fatto molto affidamento sulle vendite estive. È così che Bob e Linda cercano di salvaguardare l'attività, evitando che un calo delle venditi determini una crisi, che possa portare alla chiusura del locale.Nel frattempo i loro figli sono alle prese con un mistero, legato alla loro famiglia e che potrebbe salvarli da una futura bancarotta. Mentre i disastri non fanno altro che aumentare, i Belcher cercano di aiutarsi a vicenda per trovare un briciolo di speranza a cui attaccarsi pur di salvare l'hamburgeria.
Bob's Burgers - Il film è narrativamente, come accade sempre in questi casi, un episodio della serie tv con gli estrogeni, senza stravolgimenti nella sostanza, con qualche fanservice. Imperdibile per gli appassionati, comprensibile ma un po' freddo per chi già non ami i personaggi, il lungometraggio si avvale comunque del budget superiore a quello degli episodi. Offrendo più dettaglio, più scenografie, più dinamismo di camera, più comparse, più colori e più effetti di luce sulle animazioni, è semplicemente più bello da guardare.
