FUTURAMA: THE BEAST WITH A BILLION BACKS is the funny follow-up to BENDER'S BIG SCORE. Some things in the plot will require knowledge of the series to get the most out of this one. Fry finds it hard to share himself with a new woman (that has four other boy friends). Kiff and Amy get married. Bender joins The League Of Robots.

FINAL ANALYSIS: THE DEATS WITH A BILLION BACKS is a mixed and yet entertaining film in the FUTURAMA
DVD film series. Plenty of extras for fans to enjoy too.
