Toad to Perdition
Thanks to producer pal Nigel Smith for the loan of the Futurama DVD-movie thing, BENDER’S BIG SCORE! The first half hour is like an exceptionally good episode of the show, then there’s some plot-thickening stuff which turns out to be pretty satisfying but isn’t actually very funny. It never quite hits a sustainable feature-film rhythm, but it’s enjoyable throughout. The big laughs are at the start.
BUT — it has what must be one of the cheapest best DVD extras ever: an entire episode of Everybody Loves Hypnotoad. Essentially twenty minutes of staring amphibian, accompanied by terrifying electronic drone. With the occasional ad.
Certainly worth the rental price all by itself.
