I went to see the Simpsons Movie last night. I have promised myself this movie for ever and saved my movie pennies for it.
I thought it was a fun diversion. There was a bit of a story, not too bad, but just like a three part episode.
On the plus side we got to see the entire cast of the Simpsons - all 300 and something.....except, of course, Maude Flanders (of course, we all know what happened to her!)...
The film started well, with a brilliant joke about films of regular TV shows. And the gang built on our already strong passion for Homer and Bart's stupidity. I never looked at my watch and even felt sorry as the film drew to a conclusion.
If you haven't been yet, I recommend staying through the credits. Not only have they credited every character of Hank Azaria (I ADORE this man!!)
Harry Shearer (probably the two most prolific voices), they also expanded the regular credits with lots of made up names in the credits, to make it look 'Movie'. And added in some credit extras, which'll make you smile.
I can't stop humming 'Spiderpig, Spiderpig, does whatever a Spiderpig does....'
Fun story, good characterisations, familiar faces and some laughs - 87 minutes well spent!
