The New York Times has reviewed The Simpsons Movie and the verdict seems to be that it’s decent; akin to a long episode.
Ask any die-hard Simpsons fan and they’d probably tell you that it would be impossible for such a movie to encompass every lovable facet of the show’s 18 seasons. I would think that this would be a good opportunity for Groening and company to make this the first in a series of Simpsons movies instead of saying, “Here’s the movie you’ve all wanted for so long. Hope you’re happy.”
Did anyone else see the movie? What did you think?
