New movies and shows continue to premiere on the myriad of streaming services throughout the month, and on rare occasions, a highly-anticipated title is available across multiple platforms. 20th century The Bob’s Burgers Movie is now available to stream and can be found in two different locations. The fan-favorite feature film is now streaming on both HBO Max and Hulu and is free to stream for subscribers on both platforms. Long delayed not only by the COVID-19 pandemic, but also by the merger of 20th Century Fox and The Walt Disney Company, fans of the Emmy-winning animated series can now watch the film anytime.

Although the film wasn’t exactly a box office hit, the film barely exceeded $30 million at the domestic box office and made little international impact, the film was largely a hit with critics and the audiences that saw it. On Rotten Tomatoes, the film has an 87% approval rating and is certified fresh, with the critical consensus: “The Bob’s Burgers Movie offers all the heart, humor, and clever callbacks that fans of the show will be looking for, while remaining an entertaining entry point for the unconverted.” The viewer rating for the film even matched the critic’s score, specifically noting that new Fans will love the film and longtime viewers will find it rewarding as well.

The Bob’s Burgers Movie The story begins when a burst water main creates a giant hole right in front of Bob’s Burgers, blocking the entrance indefinitely and ruining the Belchers’ plans for a successful summer. As Bob and Linda struggle to keep the business afloat, the kids try to solve a mystery that could save their family’s restaurant. As the dangers mount, these misfits help each other find hope and fight to get back behind the counter where they belong.

For newcomers to the series who still want to get in on the fun of the film, the cast had some suggestions on where to start. Series star H. Jon Benjamin previously shared diversity: “I would probably go to one of the Thanksgiving episodes to get an introduction to the family and the dynamic between them. Each of the holiday episodes is usually a good indicator of the spirit of the show. Something always goes wrong, and then they come together and somehow fix it, but not quite.”

“I love all the holiday episodes, it’s nice to think that on holidays like Thanksgiving people are more open and everyone sits in front of the TV and relaxes,” added John Roberts. “Well I think that’s a good start, ‘Dawn of the Peck’.”

The Bob’s Burgers Movie is now streaming on HBO Max and Hulu.
