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.

Times Online – The Simpsons Movie

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.
