What is the 'Bob's Burgers' movie going to be about?
Although an official trailer for the film hasn't been shared by 20th Century Studios just yet, they have afforded fans some idea of what to expect via an official synopsis. According to the studio, the film version will basically have a larger-scaled-than-ever version of the show's typical dynamic play out, which is the Belcher family simply trying to keep their restaurant afloat.
As 20th Century Fox put it, "The story begins when a ruptured 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."
For fans of Bob's Burgers (the show), Bob's Burgers (the movie) will likely be quite an enjoyable experience as it seems to be par for the course in terms of the series' normal trajectory. Besides, who could complain about what will effectively be everything that's great about a Bob's Burgers episode, but roughly six times longer than a normal one?
