Much like the series itself, The Bob’s Burgers Movie has plenty of musical numbers. Some are catchy and well-written, while others are forgettable.

Warning! Spoilers ahead for Bob’s Burgers movie information.

Just like the series itself, Bob’s Burgers movie information has many musical numbers. Bob’s Burgers gave audiences such unforgettable songs as “Electric Love”, “Work Hard or Die Trying, Girl” and “Bad Stuff Happens in the Bathroom”, and now the movie comes with some original numbers. It’s not just a movie with musical numbers; it’s a full-fledged musical, true to the traditions of the genre, in which the music drives the plot. Gene reassembles his old band before a big gig at Wonder Wharf and the villain’s evil monologue at the film’s climax is delivered as a song.

Finally, the soundtrack of Bob’s Burgers movie information is a mixed bag. Some of the big-screen spin-off’s musical numbers are catchy and well-written and move the plot forward, while others are unnecessary detours that bring the plot to a halt. “Sunny Side Up Summer” kicks off the soundtrack to a strong start and the Itty Bitty Ditty committee plays the movie, but there are a few mediocre songs in between.

4 lucky ducks


Louise dances in the movie The Bob's Burgers

When Louise, Gene, and Tina decide to drop out of school to figure out what really happened to Cotton Candy Dan, they find themselves in Carnyopolis, an abandoned town where all the Wonder Wharf employees live in shacks with abandoned trampolines and old arcade games. The carnies come into song with the number “Lucky Ducks”. It’s by far the least memorable song in the film, perhaps because the majority is sung by characters who only appear in this scene.

The trip to Carnyopolis is an unnecessary plot detour and the song doesn’t even have anything to do with the plot, as the carnies darkly portray the pitfalls of life as a carny. Louise saves him with a few final verses about being called a “baby” and rising above to solve Cotton Candy Dan’s murder on her own.


3 Not so bad

In most movies, especially movies with a mystery-driven plot, the villain will deliver a climactic monologue explaining how he pulled off his evil plan. In Bob’s Burgers movie information, the villain’s complicated climactic monologue arrives in the form of a song titled “Not That Evil.” Grover explains that he was tired of being pushed around by his loved ones, so he murdered Dan in hopes it would close the wharf and he could open up his ‘mega park’ – but Dan’s body didn’t. undiscovered for six years, which drastically altered the plan.

The musical beat and backing track make this otherwise dry exposition more interesting. “Not That Evil” isn’t particularly catchy, as it’s the most wordy song in the film, but it’s a fun way to flip the villain monologue trope on its head. It’s also a neat twist on Disney-style villain songs, as Grover continues to insist that he’s “not so bad” and therefore not a traditional villain (although that does get a bit harder to justify when he buries a living family in a clam-shaped car).


2 sunny summer


Linda Belcher has fun with a finger in the movie The Bob's Burgers

The first great musical number of Bob’s Burgers movie information, “Sunny Side Up Summer”, gives the soundtrack a good start. As Bob and Linda prepare for a meeting at the bank and Tina, Gene and Louise head to school, “Sunny Side Up Summer” kicks off everyone’s character arcs.

Bob plans to woo the banker with a breakfast burger to get his loan extended. As he worries about getting the eggs right and his faith in good fortune wanes, Linda tells him to keep a positive attitude – setting up their poignant emotional arc throughout the film and the important lesson on the optimism that accompanies it. Meanwhile, on the way to school, Tina tells the audience that she plans to declare her love to Jimmy, Jr. to make him her “summer boyfriend.” By the end of the song, the audience knows each character’s motivation and the theme of the film: look on the bright side (or sunny side).


1 My Burger Buns


The Itty Bitty Ditty Committee performs a gig in the movie The Bob's Burgers

At the end of Bob’s Burgers movie information, Gene’s band play a gig at Wonder Wharf—a gig he constantly pestered Mr. Fischoeder to book throughout the film—for an audience consisting entirely of Bob, Linda, and Teddy. Inspired by Linda’s optimism (channeled awkwardly by a newly optimistic Bob), Gene gets over his nerves, takes the stage and gives the best performance possible. He even uses his homemade musical instrument: an empty napkin dispenser with rubber bands and silverware attached. The sound hurts people’s teeth, but Gene plays his heart on this rubber band napkin dispenser.

Gene’s group, the Itty Bitty Ditty Committee, was first introduced in the classic Bob’s Burgers episode of the same name. When they perform at the Wharf at the end of the movie, they’re outfitted in a bunch of awesome and flashy new costumes. In keeping with Gene’s signature style, the band’s final song is burger-themed, titled “My Burger Buns”. Their performance is intercut with the wrap-up edit—as Bob’s Burgers reopens, Tina finally confesses her love to Jimmy, Jr., and Louise feels confident enough to take off her hat—to play the movie perfectly.
