It takes a wide screen to fully capture Homer Simpson's stupidity, and The Simpsons Movie does it. In the eagerly-awaited animated feature film based on the hit TV series, Homer must save the world from a catastrophe that he himself created – Official Site

What is there that really needs to be said about a The Simpsons movie? I mean, all you really want is two things. 1. It's got to be good, and 2. It has to go a little farther than what they can do on TV without going over the top. Well, The Simpsons Movie delivers in spades. From the opening scene in which Homer makes fun of people paying to see the movie, to the end credits, The Simpsons Movie is just about perfect. Not too long, and yet not just an extended episode, The Simpsons Movie makes fun of everything from movie goers to Arnold Schwarzenegger, keeping nothing sacred.

The cast is just as perfect as they have always been. I have never really paid attention to who voices who in the show but I finally got an idea how hard the voice actors work on The Simpsons. Most notable is one scene where Marge is leaving Homer (again!) in which Julie Kavner's performance was heartbreaking. You could really tell how much it hurt her to say the things she said. I kind of expected a lot more cameos though. All we get is Green Day, Albert Brooks, Joe Montegna and Tom Hanks, but if that is my only gripe then I really can't complain.

I could go on all day about all of the things that this film pokes fun at but why ruin it for you? If you are a fan, you have probably already seen it. If you are a casual fan (like me) and have the extra cash, it is worth it to see it in a full theater. And FYI, there are some extras during the credits for those interested.
