Maybe because the movie IS Futurama essentially, and that is a crime known as plagiarism. Although Futurama is dead, this is still a total ripoff.

BTW, The only decent show to my knowledge that Mike Judge has ever spawned is Daria, which lets face it is a totally kickass show.
Better that Beavis n Butthead any day.

Does rather incessant TOTPD.

First of all: Daria sucks

Second of all: Mike Judge didn't create it

Third of all: I wouldn't call this movie a straight ripoff of Futurama, since the Rip Van Winkle thing has been done before Futurama anyway. But still, it's pretty cheap to come up with a "guy gets frozen and wakes up in the future" story so soon after Futurama.

Just like I wouldn't call Office Space a ripoff of Dilbert, but I guess it's still kind of cheap that he made an office comedy so soon after Dilbert started getting popular.

I like some of Judge's stuff, I don't think it is his fault that Fox gave him the timeslot that helped kill Futurama, but it is a little too similar but I agree we should see more info.

Bah. While I liked Beavis and Butthead, I always never liked King of the Hill -  and now I know why.

I hope that this movie will get nothing. Damn that plagiator! If he can't create something new and original it doesn't mean he could steal other people's ideas.

Y'all realize this topis is 2 years old, right? But while we're on the subject, did anything ever come of this supposed "movie", or did it die out? This is the first time I've heard of it, but it still kinda-sorta-not really piqued my interest.

It is a little fishy to have a plot so similar to Futurama, when you have a show that is comtemporary and competing with it on the air... He has to know that it is too close, unless the creator of B&B never watches tv. Yeah right!

I hope this film sinks as fast as gigi in the box office, plus i dont think mike judge is that good, office space was very overratted, and didnt do much in the box office.

It did not force the laughs! If you spent just ONE day in the life of an American worker similar to him, u'd think it was hilarious.

yeah i can see your point, but the office is similar and i dont find that funny either, but the sign of a good film is that you dont have to be like the main character to enjoy it. its just my personal opinion.

It actually does sound like a pretty good concept.
The future didnt get stupider in futurama. there was a cycle and when fry reawoke he hit the same point in the cycle again. Cept this time he found some friends.

I'm so conflicted with regards to Mike Judge. I love half his work and hate the other half. I think the guy's just really hit or miss. We'll see what happens with this. I'm not giving him my money though. I suggest we sneak into the movie. I hope it's different enough to be good but if it turns out to be carbon copy he can bite my shiny metal ass.
