As a fan of The Simpsons, it's only natural that I wanted to watch the movie. Like most movies based off of cartoons, you don't need to be familiar with the source material to understand and like the movie. I did find a few moments to be cringey but thankfully these were few and far between. There's something in this movie for everyone. I think the reason why it made more money than every hand-drawn animated film in the history of ever except for The Lion King was because people who grew up with the show wanted a movie so bad and had to wait 18 years. The excuse for other movies based off of childhood cartoons was mainly because they were expected to end the series. Not every one of them but a good amount of them. Also because of the trailer editing that paid homage and indirectly mocked how every trailer needs to have dramatic music and editing to look epic. And it didn't give any of the plot away. I really liked this movie. From its animation updated for the big screen to its hilarious gags and pop culture references, The Simpsons Movie has something for everyone except anyone who is racist against yellow people. It centers on Homer's character flaws that leads to Bart seeing Flanders as a better father figure as well as the events of the movie. The movie boasts some of the best 2D/3D blending I have ever seen and also some clever instances of animation by drawing things that censor out Bart's genitalia in a scene where he skateboards naked as a bet. I could go on forever about why The Simpsons Movie rocks but I won't. So, let me make this clear, The Simpsons Movie's larger scale, better-looking animation and hilarious script make it a vastly entertaining cinematic adaptation of a classic animated sitcom.
