Fresh from the hit series, THE SIMPSONS MOVIE expands the adventures of the Springfield residents into a feature-length film. Here Homer's selfish antics and his affection for a pig are responsible for a horrific ecological disaster that could spell the end for Springfield. So it's up to the paunchy patriarch to save his family and the town from the mess that he has created.
Just as in the award-winning show, THE SIMPSONS MOVIE skilfully combines smart satire with inspired silliness. Dan Castellaneta, Harry Shearer, Hank Azaria, and other regulars of the series provide laughs with their vocal talents. Though THE SIMPSONS MOVIE is best seen after a lifetime of watching reruns of the show and repeating its endlessly quotable lines, viewers don't have to be die-hard fans to get the jokes. Screenwriters Matt Groening, James L. Brooks, and company are at the top of their game here, channelling the show at its best. The film comes after 18 series of the series, but it's certainly more in the spirit (and quality) of the show's best years.
