I saw it this morning. I laughed a lot, and that's all I wanted from the movie. Thumbs up from me!

I saw it last night and laughed particularly hard at what Bart was writing on the chalkboard as I was watching it at home.



Not to mention the naughty bits. I think I will go see it again at the theatre in all it's big screen glory plus to see all the jokes I probably missed in the background. There is a ton of detail in the animation.

Hmm, I thought it wild be 1000 times better, I mean there were a few funny parts,

homer flicking people off
I guess it was surprising in a way that we saw bart, but it would of been 100 times funnier if they made that part dirtier, not a little animation thing...

I guess I'm just used to seeing South Park and watching something like Team America, Borat, etc. its hard for me to laugh because I'm so used to watching people take things to a whole new other level of dirty/funnyness..

The plot sucked any way..

2 stars

There was a good quote from someone involved with the movie about how Bart's penis was a joke about surprise, not a joke about Bart's penis. And he's right!

I'm glad they didn't go for the gratuitious things like extra swearing, extra violence, whatever. That works for South Park, because that's the kind of show South Park is. It's naughty and dirty and all that good stuff. The Simpsons isn't.

That being said, I loved Marge yelling "Somebody throw the goddamn bomb!!!"

Well, I didnt mean it as Bart's penis is a joke, i meant it as if they went with it, it would of been funnier and im not saying that i should of been more specific about south park because I wasn't talking about the swearing or the violence, just talking about taking another step up.

Like for an example, Family Guy. They managed to make a movie (didnt go in theaters) but managed to be funny, even if there wasnt a lot of violence or swearing, but yet, they took it the extra level to be funny, i hope you get what im saying...

That was niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiice.

Honestly, I haven't seen a funnier 45 minutes of cinema in years. The first half is pure joy for any Simpsons fan, and I was cheering them on inside. One great joke after another...I haven't seen anything like it since season 8 or earlier.

..........And then the plot kicked in.

The second half was also great, but the ending was cliched and tacked on. It's amazing how a film could end so average (still better than the show though) after such a glorious, triumphant beginning. The jokes keep that half afloat though, and that's good enough for me, even at my most critical.

Some of the jokes were a bit stale and too trademark Simpsons, but even those were still ridiculously funny and miles ahead of what's on TV these days.

88 minutes of ass-kicking awesomeness.

8.5/10

The first 30 minutes of the movie were hilarious. It dragged in the middle, then picked up again in the final third. (And yes, stay through the closing credits.)

I loved spider pig and "Not Bono." And about a hundred other things.

I'm sure I missed at least a few sight gags (like the ambulance in the gorge). I'm considering seeing it again this weekend or next week.
