Review: Phineas and Ferb the Movie: Across the 2nd Dimension
- Phineas and Ferb the Movie: Across the 2nd Dimension
Phineas and Ferb’s creativity carries them beyond time and space and into their first full-length feature film in Phineas and Ferb The Movie: Across The 2nd Dimension.
To celebrate Perry’s anniversary as the Flynn-Fletcher family pet, Phineas and Ferb create a larger-than-life game of platypult badminton. When they’re launched across town to make the return serve, they collide midair with Agent P’s new rocket ship, knocking him back to earth and diverting them to Dr. Doofenshmirtz’s penthouse.
The boys, feeling bad about smashing into and destroying Dr. D’s latest “-inator” and naïve to the fact that he’s an evil scientist set on taking over the tri-state area, repair the broken machinery. But just as they’re about to install the final gadget, Agent P arrives. He’s been warned not to blow his cover, though, or he’d be reassigned, so he reverts to Perry the Platypus who “doesn’t really do much.” Despite Perry’s attempts to thwart the construction, the “Otherdimensionator” roars to life and opens up an alternate universe, one where Dr. Doof ruthlessly rules with an enormous army of robots and faithful general, Platyborg.
Meanwhile, Candace is, as usual, set on busting her brothers. This time, though, it’s different. Realizing her dreamy boyfriend Jeremy is a year older than she is and will soon be heading to college, she deems herself a grownup, capable of foiling the boys’ schemes without having to report to Mom. She discovers she must appeal to the “mysterious force” that always takes away the boys’ creations before their mom sees them and winds up in the second dimension as well.
Perry has no choice but to reveal his secret identity as Agent P, and joins the kids, who with the help of their alter dimensional selves, enter into an epic battle to save their home from the Evil Dr. Doofenshmirtz!
Can the group be saved from certain doom? Will Candace finally bust her brothers? Find out in this epic adventure that is “so huge that it crosses over time and space.”
Phineas and Ferb The Movie: Across The 2nd Dimension will air again Saturday, August 13, on Disney XD at 10AM/9c.
Coming to Disney DVD + Digital Copy August 23, rated TV-G, run time 77 minutes.
