If you have school-aged kids, chances are good that you have heard of the hit Disney television show Phineas and Ferb. It’s a show about two step-brothers that are on a mission to make every single day of their summer vacation the “best day ever.” And today, August 23, 2011, Disney’s full-length movie based on the series, Phineas and Ferb The Movie: Across the 2nd Dimension, is being released on an exclusive 2-Disc Ultimate Fan Pack DVD Set! Here’s a brief synopsis:
Just when you thought Phineas and Ferb had done it all (including winning an Emmy® Award), they take their adventures to a whole new dimension in their first full-length movie: ‘Phineas and Ferb The Movie: Across the 2nd Dimension,’ featuring exclusive deleted scenes and bonuses only on Disney DVD!
When Phineas, Ferb and Perry follow Dr. Doofenshmirtz through his “Otherdimensionator,” they find themselves in an alternate universe where a second, truly evil Dr. Doof rules over his Tristate Area with an army of iron-fisted robots.
To save his friends from certain doom, Perry makes the ultimate sacrifice by revealing his secret identity as Agent P. Phineas and Ferb escape, meet their 2nd dimension selves, and begin their own mission to rescue Perry.
So begins an epic battle as our heroes try to save their home from the clutches of Evil Dr. Doof… and his sidekick Platyborg!
Will Evil Doof succeed and achieve dual world domination? Will Candace finally bust her brothers? Find out in this action-packed, epic adventure, so huge that it crosses over time and space!
I had never seen the television show before (Zackary is just getting to the age where shows like this are entertaining for him) so I was curious to see if the movie would be able to hold its own with someone that had no previous experience with the show. I wasn’t disappointed. Phineas and Ferb The Movie: Across the 2nd Dimension was hilarious!
My husband and son sat down to watch the movie with me and I was glad to see that the humour in the movie was a mix of kid-friendly jokes and subtler, more adult humour that I could enjoy. And while I was able to follow and enjoy every moment of the movie, I could also tell that a regular viewer of the show would be able to enjoy it even more.
One of the biggest highlights of the show for me was the original music. There are numerous songs throughout the movie and not only were they all great tunes, they were a big part of the comedy in the movie too! From the opening song Everything’s Better with Perry, where the catchy lyrics mention such exciting events as sitting in a chair and breathing in and out being better with a platypus to the fabulous rock hit Robot Riot that insults a race of attacking robots in song by referring to their mothers as washing machines, the songs weren’t just fun, they were really, really funny!
As much as my husband and I enjoyed this movie, Zackary was the one that loved it the most. He watched it three times in a row that first day and then insisted on watching it at least once a day for the next week! After the first few days, we took the movie downstairs to our basement playroom and insisted that Zackary watch it there. It’s a great movie, but we did decide we needed a break from it after four solid days!
The Ultimate Fan Pack contains some fun bonus features including eight deleted scenes, a music video, an exclusive song, a sing-along “Perry-oke” feature, and a bonus episode! There’s even a build-your-own Platypult Kit included with the set! This DVD set is the perfect gift for any child that enjoys the television series and is sure to be lots of fun for a new viewer as well. And with minimal violence and no excessively mature or frightening themes, it’s the perfect choice for family movie night too! So check out Phineas and Ferb The Movie: Across the 2nd Dimension and see what kinds of crazy adventures Phineas and Ferb enjoy on their most extreme “best day ever!”
