love the gang
23 January 2017 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

It's 1968. Dr. Cockroach (Hugh Laurie) has a plan to escape the secret facility and General W.R. Monger (Kiefer Sutherland). He with The Missing Link (Will Arnett) throw a birthday party for the unsuspecting B.O.B. (Seth Rogen). He feeds B.O.B. a special cake which is supposed to turn him into a bomb. Instead, B.O.B. gains the ability to read minds.

The gang is fun but the place is not. I never really liked the secret base other than as a place to escape from. Having a reminder that the group is trapped in there is not that fun. This is a functional short which gives the characters a fun action time.
