Phineas and Ferb the Movie: Across the 2nd Dimension - 5 out of 5
I'm a 31 year old single man. There's no realistic promise in my life that I'll ever have a wife or children or even a woman who wants to spent copious amounts of time with me, be willing to take the "girlfriend" label or, at the very least, change their relationship status on facebook to include me. I consider this fact to be a crime against nature and the greater good of humanity because while I lack in the looks, athleticism and financial departments, I excel in the brains, honesty, commitment, humor, caring and creativity departments. This makes me perfect fodder to be a husband but, more so, I have great taste in entertainment which makes me the ideal candidate to be a fantastic father.

and I've never taken acid.
Even though my theorectical spawn will never walk the Earth, it should be noted that I would have entertained the crap out of them (and showcases how cool I was) by sitting down with them and watching some of the best animated programs in existence--animated programs that would not only make their wide eyes wider with the bright colors that danced on the screen but programs that were so smart, creative and technically brilliant in their execution that they would make me laugh as much (or more) than my metaphoric children.

Seeing Phineas and Ferb get the movie treatment was an excellent idea for the cartoon. Not only did it allow a break from the overly familiar (but still entertaining) formula of the series, it allowed an opportunity to really showcase the love the boys have for their pet platypus and the hurt feelings they received when they learn Perry is living a double life.
|The other dimension Phineas and Ferb are not much different...just duller|
I also found myself laughing harder during this single movie than I have during any of the many marathons of episodes I have sat through. The writing is more than solid and is equipped with jokes smart and witty enough that both parent and child can enjoy--and some great references that only Mom and Dad will catch...including a Red Dawn reference that had me rolling!

have them look cool in hats.
