Short, But Entertaining

B.O.B.'S BIG BREAK is a prequel story to MONSTERS VS. ALIENS. It was originally marketed as a supplement to the DVD release of MONSTERS VS. ALIENS. The short takes place about forty years before MONSTERS VS. ALIENS. It's 1968 and Dr. Cockroach (Hugh Laurie) has concocted a special plan to help the Monsters escape from Area 52. He's made a special birthday cake for B.O.B. (Seth Rogen) with an explosive chemical in it that's meant to blow B.O.B. up so the door to their cell will be destroyed. The explosion won't hurt B.O.B. because he can literally pull himself back together. Instead, when B.O.B. digests the cake he gains the ability to hear the thoughts of others when he touches them. Of course, being B.O.B. he doesn't know this happens. Dr. Cockroach and The Missing Link (Will Arnett) use B.O.B.'s new ability to learn critical information from General Warren R. Monger (Kiefer Sutherland) and escape from Area 52. All the while, B.O.B. believes everything that's going on are part of the party games for his birthday.

B.O.B.'s BIG BREAK is only about 13 minutes long, so don't expect a full-fledged movie or a longer short. However, it does provide some interesting backstory to the Monsters from MONSTERS VS. ALIENS. I enjoyed it. I just wished it would be a little longer or would have included a few more shorts. If you enjoyed MONSTERS VS. ALIENS, you might want to check out B.O.B.'s BIG BREAK.
