Consensus: The Simpsons Movie contains the hearty laughs, biting satire, and honest portrayal of an American family that makes the show so popular. And it boasts slicker animation and polished writing that hearkens back to the show's glory days.

The incomparable gang at full length for the first time, with enough jokes, satire, nonsense, and sentiment to justify the eighty-eight minutes.

Definitely worth your money.

The consensus is right: It's only pretty funny, which is all it needed to be.

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.

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.

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.

Nobody should have a cow. Bigger and longer don't always mean better, but The Simpsons Movie is still a cut above.

The Simpsons Movie is as hard to critique as it is to resist.

Total Film

Worth every minute of the 17-year wait, The Simpsons Movie confirms Groening's creation as the smartest, funniest, most inventive cartoon in history.

God bless the Simpsons even if this is not their shiniest moment. If we're talking spin-offs, I have to give the nod to the the Hit & Run video game.

What I originally expected from The Simpsons Movie was that it would be a 90 minute advertisement for the show, there would be catchphrases or quotes and that… More

It's very easy to make a bad adaptation of a much-loved TV series. British sitcoms have an especially poor record in this field, with the majority of… More

For years, lines have been drawn...and then colored in yellow. Saw it again! Great funny movie just like the cartoons. Could watch it a million times again, I… More

The Simpsons Movie is an extended unrated version of one of the older episodes, which to be honest were the best episodes of the show.
Scott Green
A silly, laugh out loud film with a strong structure of respect already built behind the TV show, it wasn't a surprise that this film got all the… More
