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.

There were plenty of decent jokes, but I've already forgotten most of them; I suspect within a month's time I'll be hard pressed to recall much about the movie at all beyond a vague sense of disappointment.

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

The big-screen Simpsons are mildly entertaining, but too much of this is as flabby as Homer's belly.

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 Simpsons Movie successfully makes a big experience of one of the greatest TV shows of all time.

David Edelstein

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.

Geoff Pevere

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.

Why do I still feel a bit jilted? Because the premise is actually kind of promising.

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.

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.

The Simpsons Movie has countless laughter & sarcasm that those who follow the famed-animated-series are accustomed to. With the larger screen, format,… More
