In the long anticipated film, The Simpsons Movie finds the fate of Springfield – the suburban setting that has been home to The Simpsons clan for more than 18 years – hanging in the balance when Homer and his new pet pig inadvertently cause a major ecological disaster in their hometown. Forced to flee, it is up to the paunchy patriarch to save his family, the Springfield community and possibly, the world. As a massive The Simpsons fan, I felt that it was my duty to see this movie as soon as it was released and I did. I was hoping for the movie to not lose its humour and that it would be just as good as the series but it wasn’t, it was better. There were plenty of laughs and the movie was over so quick because it was very enjoyable. The story was very well written as was the characters as well. The animation was gorgeous and the scenes in the movie were hilarious and brilliantly done. This truly is a fantastic family movie and if you are a fan of The Simpsons, this is a must-watch, you’ll regret it if you don’t.
If you think that The Simpsons Movie is just an hour and a half episode…you’d be right as it does feel like an episode but in a good way. The Simpsons Movie triumphs as it really is a cleverly-written and hilarious comedy movie that is guaranteed to make you laugh. Everything about this movie is just pure brilliance. I applaud Matt Groening and the cast and crew of The Simpsons for delivering such a fantastic movie!
