The Simpsons Movie

Happy Holidays, y'all!

Got The Simpsons Movie (2007) for Christmas by my wife, and seeing as how I missed it in the theaters, I was really anticipating this one. It's been a long time comin', as the cliché goes.

Since I'm a sucker for all things Simpsons, I'm not really capable of giving an objective review of the movie, but if you like The Simpsons on TV, you'll like the movie. Simple as that. Sure - I'd have loved to see more of personal favorite characters (mostly done by Hank Azaria) such as Comic Book Guy, The Bumblebee Man, Professor Frink, Gil The Incompetent Salesman and of course Snake. Having Sideshow Bob in the movie would also have been kewl, Kelsey Grammer's schedule permitting. But that's just nitpicking. One good thing about waiting for the DVD is the bonus material. By that, I don't mean the "exclusive commentary from the gaffer" or "exclusive interview with that dude who brought Matt Groening a bagle back in 1995" - I'm talking about bona fide material, such as "Simpsons as American Idol judges". Real kewl stuff, I tells ya'!

Just watch it already....

One scene where Homer is between a rock and a hard place "literally" totally rules
