Bob, the father of the family, is pessimistic but is characterized by a big love of his family. Linda, the mother of the family, is supportive, enthusiastic, and fun-loving. Tina, the eldest, is socially awkward and obsessed with boys. Gene, the carefree middle child, writes silly songs just about anything. Louise, the youngest at 9, is mischievous, devious, and cynical. Together, the family has an interesting and hilarious dynamic that has amassed a large fanbase. Here is everything we know about the show’s upcoming film.

The television show Bob’s Burgers can be watched on Fox and Hulu. The movie can be seen on the big screen on May 27th. There are currently no plans for the movie to be on a streaming platform, so seeing it in theaters is essential. If it does make it to streaming, it’ll likely be put on Hulu.
