Bob perfects his practice burger in The Bob’s Burgers Movie

Next week, Fox’s animated comedy, Bob’s Burgers, is making the leap to the big screen in The Bob’s Burgers Movie. It’s only the second Fox animated show after The Simpsons to get its own theatrical movie. But the thing that The Bob’s Burgers Movie has most in common with The Simpsons Movie is that it challenges the premise of the show. And if the Belcher family doesn’t find its way out of this mess, there won’t be a show to go back to.

In a new preview scene from the film, Bob is so nervous about extending a loan to secure the future of his business that he plans to bribe his banker with a tasty burger. After all, it’s not like Bob has any money to bribe him with. But getting the burger just right is going to take a little practice, even with Bob’s steady hand at the grill.

Naturally, saving the business won’t be as simple as Bob hopes. As glimpsed in the following promo, Bob’s Burgers suffers an even greater misfortune when a massive sinkhole opens up right in front of the main entrance. People can’t buy burgers if they can’t get into the restaurant itself. With the family on the brink of financial ruin, the Belcher children, Tina, Gene, and Louise, find themselves attempting to solve a mystery that could save both the restaurant and the family.

Deciding how much you want to commit to a movie will invariably affect what you actually decide to put on. Challenging foreign or indie movies can be immensely rewarding, but they often require your full attention. The same is true of some larger movies that are incredibly complex -- like basically any movie Christopher Nolan has ever made.

Sometimes, though, you know you're looking for a movie that you can put on while you do some work, scroll through your phone, or play some video games. In those cases, you're more likely to gravitate toward something that feels familiar, even if it might be new to you. These are the ideal movies for that kind of experience, whether you're looking for something thrilling or funny to pass the time.
