Best Simpsons Ever!
Yeah, I got to see the Simpsons movie yesterday. Finally. To my dismay, the movie theater was packed. (Did I mention I don’t like throngs of people?) Noisy
boys geeks sitting just behind me, well behaved kids in front of me (Ye Gods, why would anyone let an eight year old watch a PG-13 movie? I love the Simpsons, but I don’t think I’d let any kid in my care watch it. It’s way too sophisticated.)
It was funny. Really funny, intermixed with a important message or two. Gorgeous animation. Homer getting hurt. A lot. Bart—ok, Bart was a little too “exposed” with not enough screen time….but that’s ok. Next movie, more Bart. You hear me, Matt Groening? I want Bart by the barrell full.I think they got away with more antics (i.e bad parenting on the roof) than they would have on the TV show–and I liked it. Yet it had some of the heart that the older shows had–and which I miss. Desperately.
The Simpsons movie was so worth waiting for! I loved it; I thought it was the best movie I’ve seen all summer.
