The package I bought contains two DVDs with the movie, eight deleted scenes (probably cut for time constraints), a bonus episode from the show, a digital copy of the movie, 8 music tracks from the movie, and best of all, a "Platypult"! :-)
One mild word of warning if you have little ones (say 6 and younger) that like P&F; this episode is a little darker than what you see on typical episodes on TV. Two of my kids were scared a little, and one had to be coaxed to watch till the end to see that no one got hurt and that the "good guys" won. Tellingly, they haven't asked to see it again as they do for other episodes we own. This isn't to say that this movie is too over the top or unsuitable for kids, but you may want to watch it first if you have youngsters who might get scared and make your own call.
But the wife and I absolutely loved it. I highly recommend this movie ... five stars.
If you have never watched the show I do suggest you do so before purchasing the movie. There are clips all over the internet and it will give you a better grasp on whether or not this is something your family would enjoy before spending your hard-earned money. I do think that it is very reasonably priced though for everything that you get in the DVD. First you get the film, then you get a digital copy of the film, as well as a CD with the songs from the movie. You also get a "build your own platypult kit" (Don't worry, it will make sense when you watch the movie) The DVD itself also has some bonus features and a few secrets of its own! Overall I am very pleased with my purchase, and I think "Phineas and Ferb the Movie: Across the 2nd Dimension" is a fine addition to the "legacy" of Phineas and Ferb and I can't wait to see what Disney comes up with for the daring duo next!
The above critical rave is fictional, but don't you just love the way some reviews make the huzzahs really big and the sources small? ("*****A TRIUMPH!" - The Margate Pennysaver).
In the case of Phineas and Ferb: Across the 2nd Dimension, its acclaim was well-earned and the ratings were high. The series is one of the best series on television today, including live action and prime time. And if you follow the series, you can spot references between episodes and learn its "language," so to speak. And it's very easy to do that because Disney Channel and Disney X-D runs the already large library of episodes quite a lot.
This helps in appreciating the first TV Phineas and Ferb movie, Across the 2nd Dimension, especially the spectacular climactic scene that parades elements from numerous episodes within minutes. However, it's not necessary to be a Phineasoid to enjoy the film.
Like the series, it's chock full of eclectic songs that weave through a snappy script. It's not just a padded episode, but a well-constructed story that sets up a logical way for the basic series premise to unravel. For fans of the show, it's the equivalent of Dr. Bellows finding out the truth about Jeannie. How it resets itself to sustain the series' continuity is clever.
The DVD package comes with a bonus digital disc so you can download the movie on an I-device plus eight songs (though I recommend the soundtrack album too). There's one episode from the series with a commentary track, though I wish the feature had a commentary too.
SPOILER!!! don't read on if you don't want to know what happens before you watch!!
My favorite part of the movie, by far, was right before the kids all had their memory erased, and Isabella kissed Phineas. His reaction was so awesome, after watching that tension between the pre-teens for a few years, it was definitely amusing!
