The Simpsons Movie Reviews

The big-screen Simpsons are mildly entertaining, but too much of this is as flabby as Homer's belly.

There were plenty of decent jokes, but I've already forgotten most of them; I suspect within a month's time I'll be hard pressed to recall much about the movie at all beyond a vague sense of disappointment.

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

Doesn't make the existential leap to the big screen, and it doesn't have the density of gags or the lunatic free-association of the best episodes.

Nobody should have a cow. Bigger and longer don't always mean better, but The Simpsons Movie is still a cut above.

Definitely worth your money.

Thank goodness the world can count on Homer's idiocy for a steady stream of laughs.

Some 10 years after expected, The Simpsons Movie couldn't give a doodle in a doughnut hole about expectations anyway. It may deliver what we've already got, but it leaves no doubt why we got it in the first place.

The Simpsons Movie is as hard to critique as it is to resist.
July 27, 2007
This one feels incomplete, an underachiever still searching for a real reason to exist beyond enriching a fat franchise.
July 27, 2007
A very funny, solidly entertaining movie that, despite its unshakable obsesion with undergarments, is as sweet as a Kwik-E-Mart Squishee.

In a way, the film is more of a Simpsons celebration than anything else -- the mother of all anniversary episodes.
July 27, 2007
It's subversively hilarious as well as strangely touching, and it features a scene in which Homer is directed across the landscape by the twin shadows of a woman's mountainous chest.

This is The Simpsons which, with its first big-screen effort, is underachieving and proud of it, man.
July 27, 2007
The Simpsons concept in feature length is just as reassuringly startling in its nonstop irreverence as the best of the weekly TV droppings.
July 27, 2007
The picture works because, despite the fact that it took nearly six years for the filmmakers to bring it to the screen, it doesn't strive for greatness. It's fleet, concise and clever in a nut-ball way.
July 27, 2007
The pace is breakneck, and the animation -- though still primitive -- makes good use of the full width of the screen.
July 27, 2007
While nothing in this motion picture quite matches the television series at its early best, this is more of a throwback than a throw-away. It's wittier and more energetic than anything that has appeared on FOX in quite a few years.
July 26, 2007
It's a strange path for the series' star writers to have chosen -- this idea that more existential meant better.
July 26, 2007
Hurray for Homer. Long may he rave.
