The Simpsons Movie Reviews
There are two problems with this film, the first being Homer. He is just soooo stupid now, and it has made him uncaring towards his family. It is impossible to like him at all, and unsurprising that Marge leaves him again (for what must be the umpteenth time?) and God, God really knows why she gets back together with him. His relationship struggle with Bart (Bart's sense of betrayal of his father) is built up as a major subplot but completely dropped in favour of tying up all the loose ends before the finale.
The second problem is that this movie is quite pointless. It feels like an overly long episode you'd see on the TV. Whether that is a good thing or a bad thing I don't know, but the story and it's execution was definitely nothing special, and I'm confused as to how it could have taken so long to write such a weak script. Like Homer says at the beginning; 'why do people pay to see a movie that's free on TV?'
This movie, however, was fantastic. It has the same great humor, animation, and characters it had from the show. The story was also really well done and the time length fot the movie was perfect. The only small problem I had was this was a very long awaited movie. It came out after the 18th Season, and to me, this movie should of been made in the 90s. But, that did not happen because of a difficult decision with a script.
Nonetheless, this is an awesome movie based off an awesome cartoon. :)
