Sam & Max The Movie

posted by StewG on - last edited - Viewed by 2.3K users

Hi!
I was just wondering if there ever would be made a Sam & Max movie.

I´m sure Steve Purcell could put something together. That would just be the best thing ever.

If anyone has an idea, please post it, and if not, then find one:p

  • Like I said on the youtube fan trailer for a Sam & Max movie, the only way we will ever see something like this is if Steve Purcell is given the director's chair for one of Pixar's short. Which does make me wonder what he could shove into 5 minutes given the episodes he penned for the animated series.

  • I really think that Sam and Max work best in smaller doses than a movie. Once you make a movie, you need an overarching plot that strings the whole thing together dramatically speaking.

    Yeah, we have a big plot in the two Sam and Max seasons. But it's across several smaller episodes, which are self-contained in and of themselves. And you can't split a movie up like that. I just don't think it'd work, like the problems we had with that horrible Spongebob movie.

    Also: Toy Story is by FAR the best Pixar film. The sequel is great too, but Finding Nemo is probably just slightly better. Wall-E was great, and the first half of the movie made me really wonder if it was going to be as good as Toy Story. But then the second half came, and I was more eh.

    I'd have to disagree with you on the terribleness of the Spongebob movie. For a TV-to-movie adaptation, it was actually pretty good.
    Anyway, do we necessarily know that Sam & Max works best in smaller doses? The fact that there's no precedent within the franchise for larger stories doesn't mean that it wouldn't do it well.

    Hello even a 10 year old could have made a better movie by just making a movie called "Bob, SpongeBob" Walking Lethal Deadly.

    Plot
    While walking spongebob runs into deadly dangers from simple everyday interaction and activities.Maybe that idea isn't that bad.

    Anyway the story of the spongebob movie was filled with boring crude humor. The second krusty krab idea wasn't funny. Then we are shown employee of the month trophies which made spongebob age over 80. Since when is spongebog a kid? The alphabet joke sucked and the mermaid was a terrible add on. Filled with plot holes like why didn't Plankton just destroy the crown and how did plankton survive in Shell City the place where he put the crown. Sure the rock song scene in the ending was good and funny but that was the only original thing in the movie.Also Squid ward seemed to be nice to spongebob.And live action human helping spongebob and patrick combined with the chase scene was stupid.

    Every single complaint you have (crude humor, unfunny jokes, plot holes, etc.) are problems that are present in the TV show. I said good TV-to-movie adaptation, not good movie. There's a difference.

    Is it possible you didn't like it because you are not the target audience?

    It's a rhetorical question because I literally pinpointed the issue.

    The Spongebob cartoons that were created by Setphen Hillenberg had more original humor so you probably expect it to be the funniest movie.Plus it was a boring fetch quest kinda movie.It also lacked comedy.

    You know, I haven't laughed at Spongebob in a long, long time.
    I think the "EXPOSITION" rainbow got me, but that's because I'm a sucker for meta-humor.

  • Yuck, no. The only way a Sam & Max movie would ever be good is if it was made with the graphics used for the cut scenes of the Telltale Games version, or more preferably, a full length feature of the original cartoon series which Fox was so damned stupid to cancel.
