The Simpsons Movie
The Simpsons Movie doesn’t suck. Read the Australian review:
The four-fingered, little yellow family from the ‘burbs has been kicking around on TV screens for a long time now. The show has outlasted virtually every other animated series ever and is completely ingrained in the mindset of just about everyone over the age of 15. The Simpsons Movie had to happen – it was always on the cards – but its timing was always a critical factor. Now, in this heinous year of the lord 2007, Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie have finally graduated to the big screen and mostly it’s a success.
Irrespective of what anyone says in reviews or around the water cooler, the fact is, if you’ve stuck by the series since the early 90s, you’ll be paying for your ticket out of sheer curiosity. And rightly so – your purchase is completely justified because you probably won’t care that the final film is really only as good as the best episodes to come out of the last four seasons of the show. It comes close to capturing the spark the show had in its prime, even, but it doesn’t quite nail it.
Let’s start with the basics – motivation. Of all the ideas to be spitballed and brainstormed around the coffee table (and after a reported 100 drafts of the script), Groening greenlit the following very-timely concept: Springfield is on the brink of an environmental disaster after pollution and contaminants have wreaked havoc on the lake. Homer is the straw that breaks the proverbial horse’s back after the fat, yellow jackass dumps a silo full of faeces into the basin. Eventually, word gets back to the President of the United States (amusingly, Arnold Schwarzenegger has taken control of the oval office) and Springfield is dramatically quarantined under a massive translucent dome.
