When it was announced, I was worried it would ruin the legendary cartoon series that is The Simpsons, so decided not to watch. Until now, It hasn't disappointed me at all. Hilarious scenes from Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, Maggie.
It seemed like all of Springfield made at least one appearance, as well as some new, non-cannon characters such as a love interest named Colin, for Lisa.
The storyline is solid, unpredictable and the way it has been left was genius. Any more, or any less would have put me off. So glad there is no sequel, although it is hinted at the end.
The whole thing is a mixture of different parodies with fans of Disney & Independence Day getting the needle . There is the usual raucous blend of satire & social comment coupled with madcap slapstick . All our favorite characters are present in this mickey being taken out of conspiracy films left , right and center . As per usual Homer causes mayhem - only now on a bigger scale than is normally the case . There is a good strong moral about not harming the Eco-system through ones own selfishness while the political class comes in for the type of razor sharp critique that Rory Bremner would be proud to call his own . The conflict between love of family & the need for civic duty is touchingly & effectively covered in this film . I am sure that many people long for the sequel !
You can certainly watch this movie on two levels - either as a child laughing at the cartoon type silliness or as an adult enjoying the mockery being doled out to those in high places . It is a feel good spin off from a successful & long running series that is great and knows it . The editing & writing is inspired as is the casting . Amazon are offering it at a great price. So there are certainly worse ways to pass the time than picking up your duff n donuts and having a few laughs with the best purveyors of cinematic parody since the Carry On series proper ended in 1978 . Like the Carry On's The Simpsons are a long running comedy series that know how to get laughs from many subjects and are in many ways historical sources as they betray the attitudes that where popular when they where made . So don't delay - buy from Amazon today !
When Springfield is announced as the most polluted city in America, drastic measures are cooked up by Russ Cargill (Albert Brooks) and President Schwarzenegger (Harry Shearer) to deal with the crisis. It’s up to Homer and the clan to try and save the day, even though it was Homer who is secretly to blame for the cities ills and the measures being taken to contain the threat. Most of Springfield’s’ residents are in evidence from Itchy and Scratchy to Bumble Bee Man and take part in a tale personal responsibility, something Homer knows little about. Spider Pig and Homer’s little song about him used in the trailers is very funny and probably doubled worldwide ticket sales on its own. Look it up on You Tube. Taking a shed load of money at the box office it proved very popular all over the world with audiences and critics alike.
Best line in the movie by some margin is expressed by an under pressure President Schwarzenegger to Russ Cargill head of The Environment Agency during a tense crisis meeting about Springfield “Crisis this, Crisis that, why doesn’t anybody open with a song, I miss Danny DeVito”
Inspired stuff and right up there with the best ever episodes!
The dvd isn't the big package of extras you might have expected.
The extras come in four sections. a main section offers two commentaries, one from the writers, producers and some of the actors, and another from the animators. this menu will also let you access the following three sections:
deleted scenes, featuring six scenes that didn't make the final cut of the movie. they're all quite funny.
special stuff. four short films that may not mean much to british viewers, as they centre round a few american things. one has homer as guest host on an american chat show. one has him hosting the american version of pop idol. one has him as a judge on this, judging simon cowell's singing [very funny scene!] and one has him in a parody of an advert for food that used to be played a lot in american cinemas.
the trailers section offers five different trailers for the movie that ran over the past year and a bit in cinemas.
Watching this on a PC and moving the pointer over the top wording in each of these sections activated an easter egg for each, each showing production drawings for one of the characters.Read more ›
