Was always going to be overhyped. Can we really expect a sitcom to perfectly extend a story concept from 22 mins to 90 mins? And successfully overcome nineties nostalgia? What we do have is a strong gag rate, some classic set pieces and some writing which is far better than recent episodes.
I remember watching this in Scotland laughing my ass off with my brother at the fact that there was actual animated nudity and of a child. Otherwise, it's like a long, mediocre Simpsons episode. So there's an occasional good joke, but not enough to warrant watching again.
Whilst one of the most popular cartoons of the 90s The Simpsons are naturally made for tv. Propelled by their huge success over the years, the film was meant to be a logical consequence. The movie is a funny over-long cartoon which becomes tiresome in the end. A great admirer of the Simpsons and their social commentary, a show that has transcended cultures and become an iconic household favourite.
Solid for what it is and its definitely worth a view for fans of the show,its just i was hoping for more with it being The Simpsons after all…as some people said on the page for this,you can go do a marathon of The Simpsons with some of the seasons that reached genuine "Classic" status and you will come away with more enjoyment and satisfaction.
