“I can’t believe we’re paying to see something we get to see on TV for free. Everyone in this theater is a giant sucker, especialy YOU.” And thus, Homer Simpson lets us know that he’s onto us, as he has been for 18 years. “The Simpsons,” television’s longest-running primetime animated series in history, and the longest running sitcom currently on primetime, has now become a movie and people are paying to see something they get to see on TV for free. And it’s worth it.


I am sure there are Simpsonologists out there who are already parsing and disescting every element of this film and scholars working on an annotated version in preparation for Cultural Studies dissertations.

Parents should know that this film includes some vulgar humor, including brief cartoon nudity, drug humor, cartoon violence, scenes in bar, a child drinking liquor, characters in peril, and some crude language.


Families who see this movie should talk about why Bart thought he might like to have Ned Flanders as his father. Why did Marge decide to leave Homer? Why did they change their minds? What can kids in your community do to help protect the environment?

Families who enjoy this movie will also enjoy the television series and Groening’s other series,
Futurama.

    The movie was pretty good, and Homer is right, we all paid to watch something we could have watched for free in our houses. I am just wondering if the “sequel” that Maggie said in the final credits will actually mean that there will be a sequel to the movie or not.
