Homer must save the world from a catastrophe he himself created. It all begins with Homer, his new pet pig and a leaky silo full of droppings--a combination that triggers a disaster the likes of which Springfield has never experienced. As Marge is outraged by Homer's monumental blunder, a vengeful mob descends on the Simpson household. The family makes a narrow escape but is soon divided by both location and conflict. The Springfield citizenry has every reason to be out for Simpson blood. The calamity triggered by Homer has drawn the attention of U.S. President Arnold Schwarzenegger and… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The incomparable gang at full length for the first time, with enough jokes, satire, nonsense, and sentiment to justify the eighty-eight minutes."
‑ David Denby, New Yorker
"Definitely worth your money."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"The consensus is right: It's only pretty funny, which is all it needed to be."
‑ Nick Pinkerton, Stop Smiling
"This re-establishes The Simpsons as the jewel in the crown of American animation."
‑ Jamie Russell, Radio Times
"It's just a shame that it's just a pretty good effort rather than a fantastic one from writers who just could have done that little bit better."
‑ Daniel Saney, Digital Spy
"Doesn't make the existential leap to the big screen, and it doesn't have the density of gags or the lunatic free-association of the best episodes."
‑ David Edelstein, New York Magazine/Vulture
"Some 10 years after expected, The Simpsons Movie couldn't give a doodle in a doughnut hole about expectations anyway. It may deliver what we've already got, but it leaves no doubt why we got it in the first place."
‑ Geoff Pevere, Toronto Star
"The Simpsons Movie gives us much of what we love about the characters, and if there is not enough of some of them, there is something of most of them."
‑ Jay Stone,
"Though the short and breezy film is predictably clever, occasionally brilliant and unfailingly entertaining it still feels very much like an elongated episode."
‑ Jeff Meyers, Metro Times (Detroit, MI)
"The Simpsons Movie doesn't ever reach its real potential, but there's enough good material at the start to mostly make up for a draggy second half. Still, if you like the Simpsons on television, you'll like them on the big screen just as well."
‑ Joshua Starnes,
"Nobody should have a cow. Bigger and longer don't always mean better, but The Simpsons Movie is still a cut above."
‑ Paul Clinton (,
"The Simpsons Movie is as hard to critique as it is to resist."
‑ Dana Stevens, Slate
"Worth every minute of the 17-year wait, The Simpsons Movie confirms Groening's creation as the smartest, funniest, most inventive cartoon in history."
‑ , Total Film
"It really is a crushing disappointment to report that The Simpsons Movie is merely average by its own lofty standards."
‑ Ali Gray,
"though Homer himself chastises us, near the start of the movie, for paying for something we can watch on TV for free, I consider the money I put down my contribution to Groening's good cause."
‑ Jay Antani, Cinema Writer
