Is pretty silly.
Originally I didn’t want to see it because, like Peter, I thought that if they were going to do a movie they should have done it about 17 years ago, and now it’s like, why? But then with about a third of the country and pretty much all of Britain going nuts over it, I got into the mood. It’s pretty good. I doubt it’ll go down in history like any of its better episodes, but it’s still pretty darned entertaining.
Which ultimately means that The Simpsons Movie is funny, clever and at times even hilarious (Bart skate-boarding naked through Springfield has to be the sight-gag of the summer). But sadly, it’s also a minor movie and never more inspiring than the sum of its admittedly witty parts.
