The Simpsons Movie
During one of our last evenings together before I leave on holiday (sadly enough without her) me and my sweetheart, being the hard-core Simpsons-fans we are, went to see the “The Simpsons Movie”. I didn’t expect anything more of it than being an episode times 4 in length and for the most part that was true, but a few things give this movie that extra zest that it needed to get into cinema’s.
I don’t want to be a spoiler so I’m not going to talk about the movie all that much, I do want to mention that hearing Ralphie sing the 20th century fox tune cracked me up and caused me say that wonderful one-liner … “My cat’s name is Mittens”. Oh Ralphie …
So anyway, the movie has all your favorite characters … – BTW were there any other characters that passed away in episodes other than Bleeding Gums (and Snowball I) ? – and those of you who know most of the earliest episodes from A to Z will laugh over the little refferences (I found a couple … there probably are more once you looked at it for a few times) that make this movie a must-see for every Simpsons-fan
The plot of the movie can be described as “one hell of a blow towards the US-government” and maybe that’s why the movie launched on the 25th here and only on the 27th in the US (according to my sources). The government is ridiculed the whole time and even Alaska couldn’t escape the blows.
All and all, as I already mentioned before, a movie that is worth the 6 to 8 euro’s for those who have always enjoyed watching Matt Groening’s creation on the little screen.
