The last (for now) Futurama movie is as strong as their first, Bender's Big Score. It is full of constant irreverence and a beautifully cynical lampoon of the environmental movement.

Review: Futurama Into the Wild Green Yonder

As each episode deals with some sci-fi or fantasy concept, Into the Wild Green Yonder deals with evolution in a modernly relevant way. Of course it's made up funny species but we get the point. Also telepathy because it's funny when people wear foil on their heads.

It's so inappropriate I love it. They're politically incorrect, racially incorrect and sexually incorrect and they go for it. It would be so offensive if it weren't all brilliant. They're totally insensitive to death, as well they should be for the sake of satire. It's all worth it to see a crowd full of scowling overbites.

There's a lot to take all at once as they may hit feminism, environmentalism, politics and celebrities all at once. Even verbal expressions get skewered. There are of course still sex and poop jokes amid all the intellectual stuff.

They end on a high note leaving a totally open road for any future Ramas yet satisfaction for the profound work they've accomplished. Most importantly, there's hypnotoad.

The DVD also includes a totally irrelevant featurette that is an elaborate fake "making of…" It's probably only funny to animation/technical DVD geeks, but they will find it hilarious.
