I was paraphrasing Comic Book Guy there. As a longtime fan of the series, I will say it surpassed my expectations. That was the most I've laughed at The Simpsons in years really.

I don't know... the past couple of years the Simpson's have been atrocious. Maybe they have been saving all their good ideas for the movie, I don't know. Well, from the previews, it seems like Homer still sucks like he does in the new episodes. They try and make him funny by making him absolutely ********, which isn't funny.

The Movie might be good, but I have my doubts. It won't compare to classic Simpsons, that's for sure.

That's where you're wrong. I'm not a fan the new Simpsons episodes, because I feel over the past few seasons, the quality has tailed off. One of the great things about the movie is it feels like a classic Simpsons episode. Great writing went into it for sure.

Great movie. There are parts that are absolutely hilarious. It may not have the charm of the old episodes, but it certainly has the humor.

I'm not writing it off... I am just being very skeptical of it and I have every reason to be so due to the poor quality of the episodes over the past couple of years.

If they can make Homer like how he used to be, which I doubt, then I will eat crow for that.

If the movie even compares to this, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F9LFjRbjszI ... then it should be a very funny movie. The thing about that clip I posted is that the simpsons have had much funnier segments/moments.

I saw it earlier tonight with some fairly mild expectations, but was actually quite surprised to have enjoyed it quite a lot. Definitely a movie that'll get you to bend over laughing a few times.

I saw it.. it's okay. I love(d) the Simpsons, I don't like the newer episodes.. Old ones are classic.. Movie got a little bit annoying though, I think I chuckled about four or five times in the whole movie. The humor isn't subtle like it used to be, or witty.. A lot of the jokes were predictable.. there's a bunch of Political shots at the Government, too.

It got a ton of laughs in the theatre, I just wasn't into it.

I enjoyed the movie a great deal. I think Shiver's points about great scenes were pretty right on, but I loved the controversial sequence that many of you know about or have heard about. That was just brilliant in my mind. I was a little disappointed not to see the [Sea Captain], but all in all, it was an enjoyable plot, and I loved the jokes.

Jason Lee sort of sold out a little with that and Underdog. Weird roles for him. I also just realized about a month ago he's a scientologist so there's another downgrade.

Allright for those interested in the plot, i know a bunch have been asking. The town gets soooo poluted, that they have several choices which are presented to the president lol, hilarious jokes made towards the government. ultimately a dome is put over springfield, and it is up to homer to save them. That is the short of it. This movie was hilarious to me. Right from the begining scene. Good jokes all around.

Mine have to be:

1. Max Power (When Homer changes his name)
2. Haw-Hawed Couple (when Bart is good friends with Nelson, and when Homer gets into reading a book with Lisa, the best line is when Homer reads ahead, and Lis wants to know what happened, Homer says time to do what I do best "Lie to a child"!!! AHAHAHAHAHAHA.
3. Homers Enemy (Frank Grimes)

Edit- I got to move the Haw-Hawd couple up, that one has some priceless lines!!

One of the newer ones that is really good...the one when Homer wears that salamander suit everywhere. Funniest part...Homer saves everyone from a massive multiple vehicle crash and Lenny says something along the likes of "three cheers for the safety salamander"...Homer's response..."only three?!?!?!" and he precedes to carry Nelson back into a burning car...lol...hilarious.

Also, he goes through a little phantom tail ordeal...haha.
