Phineas And Ferb Movie Review With An Apes Crossover

Okay, so I've seen the Phinas and Ferb Movie, and honstly, I don't have much to say. The Movi is about when the evil Doctor Doofensmirtz makes a machine that can travel across dimnsions, with the help of Phineas and Ferb, where they travel to an alternate Tri-State Area ruled by an Alternate Doctor D., who has an alternate Cyborg Perry the Platipus and has also eradicated Summer and just about everything fun just to be a dick.
When Alternate Doof meets regualar Doof, at first they become friends, in fact they have a whole musical number about it, until Doof learns more about...himself. Turns out the Alternate Doof has conquered the Alternate Tri-State Area with an army of giant robots, something the real Doof failed at seeing as he put the self-destruct button on their feet, riding off a backstory of a lost toy train from childhood. This is really stupid, and even th real Doof admits it, and because of the fact that Alternate Doof finds out real Doof is a total dumbass, tensions grow between them.
Meanwhile, Phineas and Ferb find out that Perry their pet platipus is a secret agent, mostly thanks to Alternate Doofensmirtz. Forced to run due to Alternate Cyborg Perry trying to kill them, they run to the least suspecting place they'll look: They're Alternate house.
So, Phineas and Ferb discover that their alternate selves have never expierienced summer, give a musical number that freaks Alternate Phineas out like he just saw his dad naked, and also learn that not only their Altrnate selves can't do anything, Candas's Alternate Self has to go out and fight to protect them with her...child soldiers (Come on, people, this isn't Gundam 00!).
Which is about when Candas shows up in this alternate Universe, and Alternate Doof decides to conquer the real Tri-State Area without the Real Doof, but he also needs the real Phineas and Ferb to be able to build Doof's device.
So, he kidnaps the boys basically while they try to save the real Perry who he captured, open up a portal arounf real Doof's hom, and tris to conquer the city!
But wait! It turns out Perry had rebuilt all of the boys inventions that he kept...somewhere, maybe in his ass, as the boys, Isabella, Balljeet, and the rest of the cast kick some ass, as the real Doof finds the Train Alternate Doof lost, resolving his backstory and making this whole backstory quit pointless.
But Wait! There's more! Due to the fact that the whole cast now knows Perry is a spy, all of there memories have to be wiped! Making this whole movie a pointless, waste of time!
This is sort of like a punch in the face, seeing that PHINEAS AND FERB ARE LIKE THE ONLY DISNEY CARTOON THAT HAS CONTINUITY these days. I mean what the @#$%? Well, at least it didn't suck.
Phineas and Ferb: the Movie Across the 2nd Dimension is not the terribly safe movie that I expcted, but like any other Phineas and Ferb thing, it is still waaaaay too safe, and still needs to take some risks, further explore and make jokes about common cliches, and maybe even teach kids about stereotypes. The animation is slightly better than the show, and to me is the only thing keeping it from being thatre-worthy. But it was enough to get a video-game (gasp), and that will surely suck.


Now a special Crossover Mini-review from Cinema Won:

Rise of the Planet of the Apes
Rise of The Planet of The Apes was a movie I thought i would go into expecting to have fun and nothing else. However, Apes surprised me with it's great acting and fantastic storytelling. Andy Serkis is truely amazing as the ape Ceaser and I suspect this may be the first time we hear oscar buzz for a motion capture preformance. Any scene with the apes is mesmerizing and wonderful. The human story however, lack the depth the apes story has do to no one but James Franco really get a huge part. The film also tends to drag in the middle. But, in the end, the flaws are small and Rise of The Planet of The Apes is a true shocker, as it's one of the must-see films of the YEAR. Overall it gets a 6 out of 6.
