  • A great allusion to Inception, Like The Simpsons "How I Wet Your Mother". A funny and thrilling episode.

    When Candace loses a gift Jeremy made for her, she asks Phineas and Ferb to go inside her mind and help her recreate it. I thought that this was a great episode. I really liked the allusion to Inception, which is an awesome movie.

    I thought the idea of this episode was inspired and very interesting. I found myself laughing and being thrilled at the same time.

    I do believe that this show is getting better all the time, and I personally can not wait for the fourth season.

    A perfect episode, with action and humor to keep entertained.

  • This was a pathetic and awful parody of my favorite movie "Inception"

    After losing a gift that Jeremy made for her, Candace is determined to recreate it before Jeremy realizes it's missing. Unfortunately, Candace can't remember what it looks like, so she enlists Phineas and Ferb to use their mind machine to enter into her subconscious and recapture the memory. Meanwhile, Doofenshmirtz's latest evil plan is to use his "Underwear-Inator" to take over the Tri-State Area, since everyone's greatest fear is being caught in public in their underwear. This "Phineas and Ferb" episode was just so terrible and awful to even watch. The storyline was just awful all the way through and just seeing the way the parody for the movie "Inception" is done in this installment makes you want to go throw up afterwards. "The Simpsons" Inception-themed episode "How I Wet Your Mother" was amazing and the writers have hit every single right note on that one (read my review of The Simpsons episode "How I Wet Your Mother"). In "The Simpsons", the storyline was extraordinary, the humor was fantastic, there were heartwarming scenes, action scenes were very thrilling, and it was just the best Inception-themed episode that I have ever seen. Unlike this one, it's just another pathetic excuse for the writers who are running out of ideas. Also, the storyline deals with Candace losing Jeremy's gift and all of that junk. Just be honest, do you Phineas and Ferb fans ever get tired and bored of seeing stupid teen stuff in this cartoon because I sure am which is another reason why I really hated this episode. My score is a little high because there were a couple of parts that were mildly funny but's like the only tiny positives in this episode which really doesn't save the episode by a lot. The scenes with Candace and the kids being inside Candace's head was just ugly-looking and dumb to watch plus the action scenes are just atrocious. That's all I really have to say about this episode. Everything in this episode except for a couple of mildly funny parts were just a waste of time. Overall, I love "Inception" and it's one of my favorite movies but this episode was just an insult to it.... "The Simpsons" did the Inception-themed episode RIGHT, "South Park" did the Inception-themed episode MMM DECENTLY (read my review of that as well), and "Phineas and Ferb" did the Inception-themed episode ATROCIOUSLY. 2/10
