The consensus is right: It's only pretty funny, which is all it needed to be.

The Simpsons Movie gives us much of what we love about the characters, and if there is not enough of some of them, there is something of most of them.

Total Film

Worth every minute of the 17-year wait, The Simpsons Movie confirms Groening's creation as the smartest, funniest, most inventive cartoon in history.

This re-establishes The Simpsons as the jewel in the crown of American animation.

Metro Times (Detroit, MI)

Though the short and breezy film is predictably clever, occasionally brilliant and unfailingly entertaining it still feels very much like an elongated episode.

The incomparable gang at full length for the first time, with enough jokes, satire, nonsense, and sentiment to justify the eighty-eight minutes.

It really is a crushing disappointment to report that The Simpsons Movie is merely average by its own lofty standards.

It's just a shame that it's just a pretty good effort rather than a fantastic one from writers who just could have done that little bit better.

The Simpsons Movie doesn't ever reach its real potential, but there's enough good material at the start to mostly make up for a draggy second half. Still, if you like the Simpsons on television, you'll like them on the big screen just as well.

though Homer himself chastises us, near the start of the movie, for paying for something we can watch on TV for free, I consider the money I put down my contribution to Groening's good cause.

A fitting, relevant and hilarious tribute to a 20-year phenomenon. It's definitely for fans but -- then again -- who isn't a fan?

Scarcely exploring the liberties of cinema the way the South Park movie did, The Simpsons Movie still showcases deeper and truer colors

From its very first frame the movie is through and through The Simpsons and its creators have taken the time and care to make this worth a trip to the theater rather than waiting for another syndicated rerun to come on.

Hysterically funny, genuinely cinematic -- and you get to see Bart's doodle, too.

'The Simpsons Movie' only sporadically harnesses the boundless creative energy and satirical edge that earned Groening's series its reputation as one of the most sophisticated comedies in TV history. For fans, however, it is a gift long overdue.

We barely get a line from Mr. Burns, Moe, Lou and the rest of the bunch, but following Homer J. Simpson is not a bad way to spend an hour and a half of your summer.

Hardly calls for the emphasis of a feature presentation except that it's a powerful form of market engineering.

One of the year's funniest theatrical releases, [but] it's also tough to shake a feeling of mild disappointment.
