The Simpsons Movie

The Simpsons is one of the funniest animated shows and the mixture of slapstick humour, satire, and parodies make it a treat to watch. Little wonder that the show has managed to run for so long and yet remain so good. Taking a show from a 30-minute format to a 2-hour format for a movie, however, was a bit of a challenge and risk.

The Simpsons Movie manages to do well in spite of the move to the big screen. The movie, like the show, is funny and keeps your interest throughout. Most of the characters of the show are in the movie, but the main focus is on the Simpsons family. I would’ve wanted a little more face time for some of the other characters, but that’s just me.

Overall, the movie’s good but I don’t think it’s a classic. (I’m probably judging the movie through the show’s high standards.) I think the Simpsons crew can do better and going by how well the movie’s done, maybe they’ll try a second edition a few years later.

For all Simpsons fans though it’s a must watch.
