Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
The greatest obstacle The Simpsons Movie faced was cultural relevance. Released between seasons 18 and 19 of the show, after 874 episodes exaggeration, after many fans had stopped prioritizing weekly viewings, and ten years later than it should have been, the movie could have struggled to find an audience. Instead, 7-11s were turned into Kwik-E-Marts around the country, among other successful promotions, and the Simpsons effortlessly grasped the zeitgeist as if it were 1992. It's well deserved. The Simpsons Movie is a joyous realization of the possibilities of delving into the world of Springfield and beyond at feature length -- far beyond, in fact, as the Simpson clan relocates temporarily and hilariously to Alaska. Almost every recurring character gets at least one chance to strut his or her stuff -- with the exception of Rainier Wolfcastle, who's replaced by the real-world person his character satirizes: "President Schwarzenegger." The plot is not so outrageous that it exceeds anything that could happen on a regular episode, but that's undoubtedly a good thing, as it keeps the show's essential dynamics in place, instead of blowing everything up in a case of excess ambition. However, one byproduct is that it's possible to watch the movie, enjoy it immensely, and then forget a lot of what happened soon afterward. But during, there's plenty to laugh at, including the aftermath of Springfield being enclosed in a dome to contain a Homer-created ecological disaster; the writers' continued fondness for poking fun at the Fox network and breaking the fourth wall; and an awesomely unexpected use of cartoon nudity. At the same time, there's a good dose of sentiment, as Julie Kavner's Marge gets to act out one of her most heartbreaking disappointed-in-Homer speeches of all time. The extra depth and tactility of the animation further sets it apart from the small screen. If The Simpsons Movie can't be considered a classic, it's probably because expectations were sky high, and the end result is more of a very funny diversion than an epic summation of everything that's come before. But for a show as old as Abe Simpson in television years, that ain't half bad.

    big screen suceeds

    Having been a simpson fan since the beginning, I was not happy to hear they were making a movie. Movie and TV franchises that cross mediums are rarely successful. This is the exception! Hope they make another movie when the show is no longer on tv.

    Brilliant!

    "The Simpsons" is cultural satire without peer. This smart and funny movie is comedic writing at its best.

    Funny as heck

    Just saw this movie, and I am NOT a fan of the Simpsons. Had me rolling a number of times - funny to the extreme. My wife laughed several times and the 'Spider Pig' song gets stuck in your head. Plenty of little visual gags for those who might watch it multiple times - you get more out of it the more you pay attention.

    TV on the big screen

    If you love the Simpsons on tv, then this movie is for you. Every character from the show makes an appearance no matter how brief. It's basically a very long episode but lots of fun.

    Visual Feast!

    The movie quality is amazing. You will not regret paying the extra dollars for the blu ray version. The colors are vivid and the animation is the best thing to watch on Hi-Def.

    Hysterically Funny and Enertaining!

    "The Simpsons Movie" is a witty, funny, family film adventure that surprisingly covers some important topics, such as marriage and family, religion, and the environment, but in a way that will make you laugh out loud. My only complaint: it was much too short -- I could have happily watched an additional ten to fifteen minutes of this wonderful movie.
