The Simpsons Movie

The Simpsons Movie is about the Simpsons family in what I think is the funniest movie of the year so far. Dan Castallaneta and the rest of the cast do a great job of voicing the characters they have been doing for over eighteen years. As a fan of the show I must say that this movie plays out like one really long Simpsons episode, preferably from the earlier seasons. All the gags are there, the animation is a little sharper than the show but what do you expect with a bigger budget, and of course it’s cruel and most of the times politically incorrect humor is present as well. I believe that both the fans of the show as well as the newcomers to the franchise can enjoy this movie. However, I do think that there will be some parents that are offended at what their children are watching, including a scene where a young male character says he likes men after he sees, (and we see as well), a full shot of Bart’s frontal areas. Then again, what does one expect from The Simpsons. I believe that this is the second greatest cartoon to movie transfers second only to the South Park Movie. Still The Simpsons Movie is perhaps the funniest animated movie in years and I am giving it well deserved praise but I must say that in terms of quality this year’s Ratatouille shall be picking up the animated awards. That being said I give this movie a 4 out of 5.

  1. While your review is really a paragraphical opinion and not a film review, I’ll agree that the film is funny. However, I’m not on board that it’s the funniest movie of the year or the 2nd greatest cartoon movie ever made. Yikes.

  2. Oh no, Not the second best cartoon movie ever, it would never be that, it’s the second Cartoon-made into a movie- ever. For Example there’s The South Park movie, or Tom and Jerry Movies. Most Disney Movies and such aren’t included. Though usually they’re backwards, their movies get made into cartoon shows…
