The narrative begins when a burst water main causes a big sinkhole in the middle of Bob’s Burgers, shutting the entry for an extended period of time and sabotaging the Belchers’ plans for a fun summer. While Bob and Linda fight to stay alive, The kids try to solve a mystery that could save their family’s restaurant. As the threats grow and the kids form a team, they help each other find a route back to their counters.
Following The Simpsons, it’s the second Fox animated series to have its own feature film. The Simpsons Movie has the most in common with Bob’s Burger Movie in that it goes against the show’s main premise. There will be no show for the Belcher family to return to if they cannot find a way out of this mayhem.

“The Bob’s Burgers Movie” occasionally relies too much on its whodunit story when the focus should be on the characters. Given the condition of narrative in modern major studio animation, it’s hard to believe, but there’s more plot here than the movie needs, or at least the plot that’s there in terms of the Fischoeder mystery is sort of boring.
Whether it’s about Teddy trying to make Bob’s burger company mobile or the marketing outfit Linda comes up with, the picture is at its best when it’s being a big-hearted hang-out movie. The reliance on a shallow mystery plot feels almost distracting from the actual fantastic stuff, as watching these delightful, well-defined characters bounce off each other for 100 minutes is enough to make you smile.
Regardless of whether you’re a fan of the show or not, “The Bob’s Burgers Movie” is difficult to detest. After all, it’s about a family struggling to stay together despite economic hardship and physical peril, and they’re reminded that their insecurities don’t have to define them. Who among us hasn’t experienced anything similar?
Bob doesn’t need to be droopy. Louise has the ability to be courageous. Gene has the ability to express himself. Tina, too, can make a significant step (for Tina). It’s good to see “The Bob’s Burgers Movie” keep true to its beginnings while also pushing its characters a little further out of their comfort zones. It’s almost uplifting. Perhaps that’s a stretch, but you’ll surely want a burger afterward.
