The Mystery

The movie opens with a mysterious scene that takes place 6 years earlier. Two figures are fighting in the shadows and a shot is fired or was that thunder 🤔? Fast forward to the present day at Bob’s Burgers. Bob is more stressed than ever as he looks to perfect a burger for Mr. Dowling, their loan manager at the bank. Bob and Linda seem to be behind on their payments again and look to impress Mr. Dowling to receive an extension on their payments.

Things don’t go according to plan and the Belchers are denied the extension. With 7 days left to make their payment, Bob is sent into a spiral of doubt, uncertainty, and panic. If matters couldn’t get any worse, just as an idea to drum up business arrives, a giant sinkhole opens up in front of the entrance to the restaurant, causing Bob even more stress.

Linda hopes that the sinkhole will be filled and the family can drum up business from The Wharf’s Octa-Versary, 80th celebration! The Wharf is an amusement park on the pier that’s down the street. Linda is optimistic that the foot traffic from the event will drive hungry mouths into Bob’s Burgers and save them once again! Will everything go according to plan?
