The Simpsons Movie review

A legendary TV show with a large number of global followers. Who doesn’t know the family? The beer drinking, donut eating klutz named Homer? A sweet wife named Marge? The jazz oriented genius of the family, Lisa? The troublesome kid who fights with his dad a lot, Bart? The cute, silent but affectionate Maggie? In the television series there are numerous characters of The Simpsons like Apu, Ned Flanders, Nelson, comic book nerd, etc. I felt like watching an extended show instead of a film because of the light plot and length. Some background figures weren’t given opportunities to shine. Though I was very entertained, something was missing. Maybe because I just wanted to see more. Nevertheless, it was a good animated film that everybody can enjoy. Hope Seinfeld will have a featur...

The Simpsons Movie- Always Great

The Simpsons Movie is going to be historical for many years to come. With a great story and a great sense of humor, the movie is a clear winner in the common man´s home.
It can be watched by anyone, anywhere and anyhow. It is a big 10 star!

It all starts during a Green Day- concert. When the band wants to talk about the enironment, the Springfieldians just want music. So they start throwing beer at the floating stage that the band uses. The pollution in the lake makes the stage sink into the water.
After that accident, mayor Quimby closes the lake, so no further pollution will continue.
But Homer won´t listen. He smashes through the wall and dumps a whole silo filled with pig dump.
And that does it. The goverment closes springfield and are planning to blow the whole city up, with...

Shows how bad the series has gotten.

I was once a great Simpson fan but that ended when it reached about the 13th season where the shows downward spiral really took off. I think episodes from say the 4th season are some of the greatest comedy ever written but these current episodes are just terrible. First off a foolish plot lacking in clever or funny jokes. Not only that they for some reason have gone with a flawed plot, that gives little time to any characters that might even try to give off a laugh. Not only that it feels very much like those poorly made cartoon to movie movies, in terms of its structure and animation. One big problem I felt that ruined automatically was Homer was just too much of a jerk, in older episodes he would do things that were wrong but they were generally due to stupidity in this he does it on p...

Fells like an extended episode, but few laughs

Based on the longest running animated series in the history of US television, we get to see the famed residents of "Springfield, USA" say and do things that they can't do because of FCC regulations which govern US television.

"Marge Simpson" (voiced by Julie Kavner) becomes worried that the end of the world is near when her senile father-in-law, "Grampa Simpson" (Dan Castellaneta) recites a cryptic message during the church service they attended.

After her dim-witted husband, "Homer" (voiced by Castellaneta) brings home a pig, which he saved from slaughter after it was used in a "Krusty Burger" restaurant commercial, it appears that the prediction "Grampa" spouted in his "senior moment," as "Homer" coined it, was coming true.

In typical "Homer" fashion, he contaminates "Spring...

The Simpsons Movie

Very funny, indeed. I haven't seen a decent episode of "The Simpsons" in a while so my expectations weren't that high. But when that 20th Century Fox logo came out, I started laughing, which was further supported by Homer's "You Suckers!" speech. What I like about this movie is that it captured a lot of that old-school storylines and inner jokes that "The Simpsons" had in the past. Just because the dialogue is funny due to jokes being catapulted on top of another, it doesn't mean that nothing is going on in the background. I love movies like that because it inspires me to see them again and again. We all know that "The Simpsons" is a liberal show but it still makes fun of itself in many ways. Although it can be quite offensive to some people at times, it's never in a mean-spirited way. Wi...

I Felt Like I Was Watching the TV Show

How many good TV series movies are any good. I am trying to think and I can't think of a whole lot other than First Contact - in which it took them about 7 tries to get a more interesting piece of work than many of the Star Trek TV shows.

The same applies to the Simpsons. Remember about 5 years ago when every episode was great? I thought I had just gotten old then I realized that everyone felt the same as I do. The movie is actually not bad. It provides a lot of laughs and some interesting moments. But does it do anything new? No. Does it make us feel like we are watching a movie? No. I felt like I could have stayed home and seen the same show on tv next Sunday night.

They basically had two choices: wait until the series was canceled or create something new out of something o...

The Simpsons Return to Form

As longtime Simpsons fans, my girlfriend and I were dubious of seeing the Simpsons movie for one key reason: distrust.

Most fans will acknowledge that the series itself has been less than stellar since the 9th or 10th season, as the current creative team has been less interested in the emotional connections between the characters and more interested in pushing the shock value comedy envelope. As such, the series no longer resonates the way it did when it was introduced, because the characters tend to be more like caricatures.

Fortunately, the movie celebrates a return to form for the Simpsons that walks the line between heart and humor. Homer, Marge, Maggie and Bart are all written as complex, well-rounded individuals who manage to stay in character while whipping from one extreme ...

A movie any Simpson's lover would be happy with

Let it be known that I was not at all disappointed with the Simpson movie. It was funny throughout but best of all Matt Groening didn't sell out like George Lucas did with Star Wars. Instead, Matt Groening made it for the audience that loved it in the first place, most of whom are adults now. Sure, the younger crowd will enjoy it, but clearly it was made with the idea of making the references more adult and saying things they cannot on Fox.

Not selling out, that really sums up this movie. They could have tried to get it down to a PG rating to make more money but instead stayed true. Even there music was memorable, probably because the great Danny Elfman composed it. I could not think of a better way to end a series than with a movie that ties everything together and leaves nothing lef...

The Simpsons Movie D'oh-lighfully Entertaining

The Simpsons Movie reminds me of the golden age of The Simpsons TV show - that magical 4th through 6th season where every episode seemed perfect. It has that near perfect blend of comedy and compassion. Like the best episodes, it deals with religion, politics, the environment and celebrity with wit and vigor.

The plot, as you would expect, veers wildly from one scene to the next. What starts off as a wonderful tale of a man and his pig (or should I say, Spiderpig?) takes a turn for the worst when, in typical Homer fashion, he decides donuts are more important than his town and dumps the accumulated pig waste into Lake Springfield instantly turning it toxic. Of course the town finds out and a mob seeks out the nefarious criminal and his family. A lucky sinkhole provides an escape to Ala...
