  • Saw the Simpsons movie

    I saw the Simpson's movie on Friday and I thought it was hilarious especially the beginning of the movie. Did anybody else go see it?

    Saw it today with my family ( wife, son 10, daughter 9, son 9 twins) Loved it, have been a Simpsons fan for a long time, After the movie I was told I was the only person laughing at times, which is what I enjoy so much about this show. It works on so many different levels

      Sorry guys, but I loathe the Simpsons.

      It's ok though if you wish the atypical American dad to be symbolized as Homer, and the atypical American youth to be symbolized as Bart

      Personally I find most of the current mature theme North American cartoon scene to be focused on how useless it is to be Americans somehow hehe.

      I'd rather laugh at my anime instead

          SOOO tired of the Simpsons now. Futurama is much better.

            It was in my opinion rather good, but people will go to see the film with unrealistic expectations

              I haven't watched the Simpsons on TV in years, but I loved the movie. You could tell they really brought back a lot of the old people from the show.

                Spoken like someone who truly misses the point of satire.

                  Oh I know and understand satire, but some jokes just ain't funny, and some jokes just ain't funny the 100th time either.

                  Personally I am amused at what some nations have as iconic representations of themselves.

                  Here in Canada we have Bob and Doug Mackenzie, Mounties, and Celine Dion. To some extent we also have those dreadful Trailer Park guys too. We also have Rick Mercer. Not always entirely complimentary, but easily better than Homer the loser and Bart the underachiever.

                  Maybe I just can't understand how a nation can enjoy having the arch type of the American father represented by Homer, and the atypical US kid represented by Bart. Is it any wonder why the world often laughs AT the US hehe.

                    Not the best film I've seen this year (the film 'Hot Fuzz' beats it by a country mile) but it was very funny in a number of scenes.

                    Worth seeing if you've ever liked the Simpsons TV show.


                    ps, The film to avoid if you are over 15 and have more than 2 working brain cells is 'The Transformers'. went to see it last night..... my brain cells are still annoyed with me today

                      Anyone that could accept even if marginally, The Simpsons, and yet slag off the Transformers, might have brain cells, but doesn't have any taste

                        I am an avid Simpson fan, and did indeed have what I thought would be unrealistic expecations. I however couldnt be more staisfied with the moive. It was hillarious, but at the same time managed to make alot more sense than the average braindead blockbuster.
                        It was also nice to see that they went that extra step with every character, getting serious as well as not holding anything back.

                        "Spider Pig" aka "Plopper" FTW!

                          Nothing like continuing to make my point for me.

                            Hot Fuzz was awesome.

                              If the world actually thinks that Homer represents us, then so be it. Interesting if this is really a point. I know Monty Python has been quite successful in Britian, not the most flattering view of their society. The reruns have made big money here because "We get it". Check out Jeff Foxworthy and Larry the Cable Guy. HUGE in the southern region as well as the entire country.

                              The acceptance of Historical, Political, Social satire within a nation shows a confidence in the society that I enjoy. Good luck with the ones you have in Canada.
