I always see people say that this art style is much better than that of dbs. I think that it's good but not great because for example Goku sometimes looks like he has no muscles anymore (Scene on the mountain with Piccolo Vegeta and Goku). I just like the more detailed style that's also I why prefer Takahashi over shintani.

if you care about sakuga or well animated scenes then yes it is that good because the simple character design means its animation friendly or the animators can draw it easily

Art style is subjective but I personally prefer the broly movie look to the DBS look.
It's the first time I liked a digital dragon ball anime's character designs as much as I liked the old cel era designs.

If comparing dbs and the movie then I think the movie is much better in terms of art

Well we all like different stuff but I found the broly art to look super clean and visually pleasing to look at from the very start all the way to the very end. For that alone, I would say that I liked the broly.
I love One Piece and Gintama

There were only very places where Super looked good, and they were pretty exclusively from the Tournament of Power.

The art in the Broly movie is way better (also obviously because it's a movie made for the big screen and not a long-running weekly show). The lack of big muscles on the characters is something started in Dragon Ball Super, lol. If anything blame that, not the movie that came afterwards. Big muscles in anime aren't in anymore, so you'll hardly see them anywhere in modern anime (or at least not on the main cast).

Yeah I loved the different look for it, definitely better than in the show.

That’s not exactly the main reason.
But everyone has muscles and looks the same. In the manga.
It’s just Toei and their dumb decisions for Super to make everything more cartoonish and no blood and stuff. That’s not the movie’s fault per se.
The art style in DBS is fine, there’s nothing wrong with it but Broly movie decided the OG for very specific reasons:
1-) Nostalgic: It’s the one everyone loves.
2-) Real reason: Minimalistic; Less detail design in order to abuse the budget for fluent animation.
That’s basically why nobody complains about the movie.
Nothing is static, everything flows more natural and organic.
Sure, DBS visually is much more appealing but aside from the Tournament of Power animation is lackluster.

I love the artstyle!!!!! It’s much more authentic to the early dragon ball z art style that I love as well!!! I love the big eyes and the bouncy hair, and the vibrant, yet satisfying color scheme.
