In the 2008 animated film, Futurama: Bender's Game, the lovable, beer-guzzling, cigar-smoking robot, Bender, takes center stage. The movie is the third installment in the Futurama franchise, and follows on from the events of the previous movies, The Beast with a Billion Backs and Bender's Big Score.

The plot follows Bender as he becomes addicted to a Dungeons & Dragons-esque role-playing game – an activity prohibited by Momcorp, the evil corporation that runs New New York, a city set 1,000 years in the future. As Bender's obsession with the game deepens, he begins to see his fellow crew members from Planet Express – Fry, Leela, Professor Farnsworth, Hermes, and Zoidberg – as characters from the game. Meanwhile, Momcorp is hatching a plot to steal Dark Matter from the other planets in the solar system, which is needed to power the engines of spaceships.

As the plot unfolds, it becomes clear that the game that Bender and his crew mates are playing has a much deeper connection to the events that are happening outside of their game. The crew realizes that they must use their knowledge of the game to stop Momcorp's evil plan and save the universe.

The voice cast for the movie is led by Billy West, who voices Fry and Professor Farnsworth, and also includes Katey Sagal as the voice of Leela, John DiMaggio as Bender, and Tress MacNeille as the multiple female characters of the franchise. The actors are joined by a host of celebrity guests, including Sigourney Weaver and George Takei, who both play characters in the movie.

As with the previous Futurama movies, Bender's Game is packed with jokes, pop culture references, and wild sci-fi concepts, all wrapped up in a quirky and irreverent package. Highlights include Bender's hilarious impersonation of a dragon, a trip to a world where time moves backwards, and a battle between two factions of robots, one with a paintball gun, and the other with a fire hose.

The film is directed by Dwayne Carey-Hill, who has worked on several shows in the Futurama universe, including the original series and the previous movies. Despite being an animated film geared towards a younger audience, Bender's Game is not afraid to push boundaries, with jokes about drug addiction and some slightly risqué humor.

Overall, Futurama: Bender's Game is a fun, entertaining movie that will be enjoyed by fans of the franchise, as well as anyone with a love for sci-fi and offbeat humor. It has all the elements that have made Futurama a cult classic – eccentric characters, bizarre concepts, and sharp writing. Whether you're a longtime fan of the show, or are coming to it for the first time, this movie is a great introduction to the weird and wonderful world of Futurama.
