    In response to Nibbler/Brain/The Other.... I think they led us to believe that Leela would eventually get together with Fry in the end, or close to it, if she is destined for something that would save the world, and this saved one world. Leela, to me, was considered "the other" not because of the brains, or nibbler, but because she was the one that led the eco-feminists to protest the Violet Dwarf Star, so she and Fry played the biggest parts in the movie, both trying to save the star.... at first, I thought she would be "the other" that couldn't have her mind read... but, I was knew I was wrong when that person/thing was the Dark One.... So, I still think that she was only considered "the other" because of her and Fry's relationship, and the fact that they were both the leaders of some organization (Fry only because he was the only one that mattered).... so, that's my opinion

    Though the ending didn't sit too well with me. I think it should've ended after they go into the wormhole, the closing credits shows what became of them, or a "Goldmember" type of ending where they watch themselves in the theater. It's a good thing Billy West said there might be a new season in the works. That's probably it ended how it did.


    It ended that specifically so they're not stating what happens to them next. That was the whole point, the dialogue here more or less made a significant continuity error in regards to space travel simply to leave us not knowing if the crew would be all right. Basically, if the show is revived, then they're ok for sure, if not, then who knows.

    I thought the ending was good, but Leela's "I love you" needed more. I'm happy about the kiss, but I think it should've been a little more Leela-ish like "You know what? I think you're a dumb goofbag. Ever since I first met you, I knew that you were the stupidest person in the universe. I think I love you for that." You know?

    Also, I think Nibbler should've been in it.

    A lot of great comments there, and I agree by far the best with the

    "questionable ending as to whether it is to continue"

    Hope so guys

    While I'm not a big fan of how they ended the movie, I still think that the movie itself was pretty good.

    Actually, Nibbler was in the final minutes on the PE ship

    After one great movie, one bad movie and one somewhere in the middle, it was up to the last film to have my response to Futurama's departure be either "See you in hell, Crapville" or "All good things must come to an end, preferably with a humungous explosion". Before I get into my review, the top ten jokes of Into The Wild Green Yonder, in no particular order are:

    -No sign of life or intelligence (just like Fry on a date)

    -What began with a harmless vice president killing...

    -Tickle me Bender ("Quit touching my junk, pervert!)

    -You wouldn't ask Thomas Edison whether he knew how to use a sexamatron

    -Prepare to be boarded again and again

    -"I choose pink" "That's their colour sir" "The hell it is"

    -It's a humiliating and biased system but it works

    -Viewers trust a deep male voice with huge throbbing forehead veins

    -You've come to the Wong place [actually reminded me of a bad joke me and my mates came up with in high school. In a nutshell, two Chinese brothers were in a competition with the Wright brothers to build the first working plane. They finished building first but when they took it for a test flight, the plane wouldn't fly and burst into flames. The moral is two Wongs don't make a Wright. If it was possible someone we told it too tried to make the joke even lamer by saying that maybe the joke was narrated by Elmer Fudd to Bugs Bunny, so he would end the story "Two Wongs don't make a Wright, you wascally wabbit"]

    -On 53 counts of fugivity

    The movie started off slow, but once it got going, the jokes were more fast-paced and frequent and the story entertaining. Zapp Brannigan was in top form in the movie, as was Farnsworth and basically all the characters, though the movie could have used more Bender, his plot with the fembot being all too short. The Donbot's "unproven" suspicions were hilarious, as was Clamps and the rest of the gang, though I do like the quick line of Bender breaking up with the fembot casually, without it even seeming to be a break-up.

    Fry's plot was terrific and funny, with him continuously getting hit with bottles (much funnier than the recurring leech joke), and his mind-reading moments were hilarious. Being the stupidest man on the planet (since I'm guessing they didn't keep Bush's head in a jar) once again being pivotal to saving the world was great, and the weird plot was quite intriguing. I also loved Fry shrugging off the refusal to respond to the fact that humans aren't endangered.

    Leela's plot was not quite as good, since there was a bit of overkill on the whole environmental message, but there's some great feminist jokes, and the fugitive concept was great. I think it got a little too cheesy in the end with Fry and Leela, and I think the movie would have worked better with just the hints (i.e. the scene outside Planet Express and Fry thinking he's risking his life by pressing the device to his chest) and the 'love' exchange just seemed misplaced. But the wormhole ending was a good way of ending the show, because you don't know if they all die, or they get warped to some place better or worse, and leaves a lot to the imagination.

    My ranking of the movies are as follows:

    Bender's Big Score
    Into The Wild Green Yonder
    Bender's Game

    The Beast With A Billion Backs.

    From the casino to the wormhole, this movie was a lot of laughs, and while none of the DVD movies could be considered as good as the original series, they were "all" entertaining, and Into The Wild Green Yonder is a fitting ending for this great show. And as for whether or not the show is resurrected again, I just hope they killed Futurama twice as a warning.

    You forgot "I'm Leo Wong, and I say BOOM!" Lol. But there are some things that I don't get, like how the femenecklace gave fry mind-reading powers. Something I don't like was all those pointless deaths when the Nimbus was split in half. It wasn't that funny.

    The femenecklace

    When Freda landed on Fry, her necklace got stuck in his brain, and with his missing brain wave, gave him mind-reading abilities. This movie was a victim of the 2007 writers strike.

    But if Reda had the femanecklace, wouldn't she also be able to read minds? cause it didn't seem like she could, but I may be wrong...

    Freda had it around her neck. Fry had it lodged in his brain

    Yeah, but how did it give him mind reading powers? There's no explination(e.i does it have magical powers, did exposure to Hutch give it telepathic properties).

    By far, this is the worst Futurama movie I've seen. The other one I saw was Bender's Big Score. (Yeah... I didn't see the 2nd or 3rd one)

    It showed us that it was lodged in his brain, and mixing with his brainwaves, entitled him to read minds. Thats why, when Hutch Waterfall removed it, he couldn't read minds.

    It is MUCH better than 2nd and 3rd.

    That still doesn't make sense, yes, I understand that it got lodged in his brain, and mixed with stuff, but WHY did it do that? It's just a necklace after all

    Same reason scientists were/will be able to raise the speed of light in 2208. It's a plot device in a fictional cartoon.

    I think it ended so that it CAN continue..... maybe int he time space continuum, they could arrive in 2010 and see how they live their lives today.... can you imagine what it would be like?

    But the spped of light was actually raised by scientists. And there's no proof that that actually happened.

    You accept that a universal constant can be raised because they said "scientists did it" but not the equally ludicrous mind reading plot?
