Phineas and Ferb the Movie: Candace Against the Universe is a fun animated movie. I always loved the show when I was younger so I was excited to watch this. I haven’t seen every episode but I’ve seen enough to appreciate this. While it’s not as good as the first film, it’s a fun film for anyone who is a fan of the show. It was nice to see these characters again. It captured the same energy that the show had. You should probably not watch this without having watched at least some of the show. If you are a fan than you should definitely watch it and you probably won’t be disappointed(depends on what your standards are). I just had a really fun time with this.
The best things about this film had to be the characters. I loved seeing them again. Each one had a time to shine. Candace especially had a time to shine in the film. She got a lot of character development which I did not expect. The movie was partially revolved around her hence the title. By the end her character changed. There were great themes revolving around the importance of siblings. The film was also really funny. It had the same humor as the show. There were many great jokes and gags throughout the film. The songs were also great. They were cheesy but that’s the point and they sounded pretty good. There were a lot of references to the show which is great. I liked how Dr. Doofenshmirtz was helping the team in this one. That’s always great. His back and forth banter with them was hilarious.
Now it did have quite a few problems. Mostly revolving around the plot. It was a pretty cliche story. It’s definitely been done before. It’s not very original. It also kind of just felt like another episode of the show. Maybe the story was bigger than that but honestly the show had bigger things in it. It’s fine because I missed watching these characters and that was honestly the purpose of the film. It was there for the fans. It’s not there as a film that will win awards. It’s just a fun movie. The flaws do take a bit away but that’s fine. I’m happy I got to see these characters again.
If you loved the show, you’ll enjoy this. It’s a nice film that can cheer you up just like the show could. Overall Phineas and Ferb the Movie: Candace Against the Universe is a fun film that fans of the show will definitely have a fun time with it.
