Movie Details

In this take on Raging Bull, the episode "Raging Bender" starts with the Planet Express crew going out to the movies. Bender gets into a fight with another robot in the theater and knocks him out, only to find out that the robot was the champion of the Robot Fighting League. Bender immediately joins the league and wins a lot of matches because he's popular. When he starts to lose his public appeal, he asks Leela to coach him for the big match against the giant robot Destructor. She agrees because she has a grudge against Destructor's coach, Phnog, who is also her old martial arts instructor. Leela figures out the secret behind Destructor's power and she saves the day, but Bender still loses and gets kicked out of the league. ~ Andrea LeVasseur, Rovi
