ok well first of all i'm not late for the party i saw the simpsons movie like back in july 25th, but i just never had enough time to Write about it, i'm enjoying my sweet sweet holiday in london and let me tell you something, it's fantastic!!!!
anyway moving on, i just want to say that when i saw the movie i had zero expectations, but i came out of the movie pleased... not satisfied as i hoped, but pleased none the less, the movie started as if there it had started 30 minutes ago, it had absalutely no introduction to the movie (other than itchy and scratchy bit... thatwas funny) it's as if the cast already knew that everyone who's coming to see this movie is a die hard simspons fan or at least just a fan, it got STRAIGHT to the point, which i loved because they don't waste all the time of " getting to know the characters" or any of that crap.
this movie to me is a bit of strange because i found the beginning to be much better than the end, which isn't usual, at least not from my expereince, the jokes were miles better, showing bart's penis is easily my favorite joke in the entire movie, because i never excpected them to do such a thing, after that the movie went along with a few other jokes, the spider pigsong was awesome, and the choir singing it in such a serious tune was even more awesome!!!!, after that though things kinda sank lower and lower, i for one am just sick of the SAVE THIS SAVE THAT, THE HERO WHO CAUSED ALL THE DAMAGE IN THE FIRST PLACE BUT RECOVERED THE DAMAGE and all of the other BS ( if you don't know what i'm talking about then play aJRPG and you'll see what i mean), ever since they announced a simpsons movie i was afraid that this might be the plot, and it was, which is the main reason why i thought the movie was OK at best, they could have done so much more yet they brought us that rediculous plot.
Still there were some great jokes thrown all over the movie, the gay police men were one of my favorites too, and the boob lady LOOOOOOOL!!!!!!! i just loved it, i just wish they got rid of all the cheesyness surrounding the movie (the breakup and the dying town for example), and as you go on with the movie more and more cheesy stuff came out, and the jokes faded oh so quickly by the end, i don't think i laughed or even giggled in the last 20 minutes, i was juststaring at the screen or rolilng my eyes that's it, i was also disapppinted that not all the characters were in the movie, i wouldn't have even thought of that as a feature, but Matt simply said it over and over again that we'll see all the characters... we didn't.
i also read in the same interview that it was supposed to be a musical? LOL now THAT would have been trash, and he also said that theymade jokes that were REALLY funny when they heard it for the first 250 or 300 times.... WTF was that about? no one is going to watch the movie 250 times JUST PUT IT THERE, i'll never understand what went on in their heads really i don't.
overall it's just as i have said before, the movie is NOT bad, but it's NOT great either, it could have been so much more than that, oh and one final thing, I LOVED the greenday cover, i want it as my phone ring :P
ok so anyway,i don't get why th die hard simspsons fans think this movie was TERRIBLE, or whatever, i went to the IMdb boards and was very surprised at how the people reacted to this movie, i realize that Matt had made so much hype about this movie but it wasn't terrible, and it most certainly wasn't bad.
