Flat out hilarious. I thought the highlight of the entire fun feast was Homer flipping everyone off and them clawing his head.
There is alot of hilarios lines and actions but somethings stood out. I won’t saw what, but they were slighting annoying.
only one thing left to say, “Tossle my hair Mr. Hanks.”

I really liked this movie, I’ve been a fan of the Simpsons since I was a little kid. My friend thinks it’s too over the top and it’s something that would never happen in an episode of the show, but what the fuck is the reason for making a movie if not to show people something they’ve never seen before. To me it was everything I love about the Simpsons and the movie just took it a step further and had something that would probably take the show two or even three episodes to actually do.

you only have to may $9.75 for a ticket? i live in Alberta Canada and up here it’s about $12.50

WHAT!! I live in Kansas and non-3D movies (and no IMAX) are $7!

Fan of the show….not the movie. It seemed like a drawn out episode of the series……….kinda like the X-Files movie felt. Sorry James but I agree to disagree on this one.

i liked this movie but it was like the nostalgia felling. I thought it was pretty funny but i just didnt think it was as good as the show. still good movie

In Germany we are at 11 EUR for the top billers which given current rates is about 14 USD. But yeah the movie exceeded my expectations too.

I don’t see why your movie reviews don’t get as many hits as the AVGN does, or at least close. I mean, they’re not greatly detailed, but, they’re still good, funny, and I agree with most of them.

This might be the only occasion where I really disagree with you. In my opinion, the movie is just okay, and some parts suck pretty hard. But overall, it’s still entertaining and was worth the money.

Here’s my summary of the Simpsons series.
Early days (early 80s): Shit!
Middle Days (late 80s, 90s and early 2000s): Awesome
Film: Pretty good.
New series (2009 and beyond): Meehhh

I completely agree with the ticket price fiasco. It was already $11 to see it at my local theatre when I saw it in 2007. But I guess that’s what to expect for Orange County…

For me as a big Simpsons fan for almost my whole life, this was the movie where was waiting for. When I first readed about it, I was just like “Damn, I’ill do anything to see that movie!” I had really high expectations, and I wasn’t dissapointed. And I don’t think the series went downhill. Each episode stay hilarious. The jokes never get old. For me, The Simpsons is the best tv-show of all time.

To me it was fun, but it was just like seeing an episode of the show.
Even if I liked the show, I only enjoy watching old episodes, because to me they run out of ideas in the newer ones. For example I saw the episode of the comic book guy drawing his own comics and having Homer star in the movie adaptation of them. Well, it looked like a merge between old episodes, like the one where Bart makes the Angry Dad comic, the one where they make the radioactive man movie, the ones where Homer train to lose weight and the ones about comics!
The new episodes and the movie may even be funny, but I feel like not being interested in them anymore.
Also I hate how they don’t age! Lisa and Bart are always at the same school grade! Characters actually have memory for years in the past, because they sometimes make references to previous episodes! And we materially saw them living twenty or so Christmases! Come on!
I really really hoped they made the move to change the status quo, like for the Transformers movie in ’86, but they didn’t. Fuck.

“Spider Pig, Spider Pig, does whatever a Spider Pig does
Can he swing, from a web? No he can’t, he’s a pig
LOOK OUT! Here comes the Spider Pig!” – Homer
For that alone, it was worth the price of admission. And the cost of the DVD.

It now cost $12.50 for a movie ticket. 3D prices are outrageous. They are about $15 (3D is overused and overrated) and for imax 3D its $20!

Unfortunately, I gotta agree with you on that last point. I love watching movies, and my friends and I watch a movie together once a week. it’s awesome. However, it’s always a DVD (from Netflix,) and only once in the past few years can I remember actually paying to go watch a movie in a theater. Honestly, I would go a hell of a lot more often if it wasn’t so expensive.

9.75$ for a movie?
Welcome to Basel, Switzerland, where you can see a movie for as little as 17.- CHF which amounts to 18$ (current exchange rates, or 13$ before the crisis). And we don’t have U.S screen sizes.
I personally didn’t (and don’t) like the Simpsons movie all that much. I’ve been a huge fan for 15 years now, but the movie was kind of bland in many of it’s jokes. It’s not that it’s a bad movie, but it just didn’t amount to the quality of the series, in a way.

I’m sorry to say, but the whole Simpsons movie is CG. Not 3D, but still CG. Every character was made using vector graphic, sooo… I’m sorry. Want to see one that is drawn pencils on paper? It’s still waiting for it’s premiere: http://vimeo.com/16993294

I HATED that movie…
INothing wrong in it being just a ‘long episode’… but it was a BAD EPISODE.
Also I still do not understand why ‘spider-pig’ is so funny…
It did not make me laugh, it was boring… it sucked ass from a straw (quoting AVGN I know).
Luckily I went to see it for free (someone else paid the tickets) or I’d felt cheated.
Now I do not want to say it’s an horrible movie… maybe it has its merits and many people like it, but it did not entertain me at all.

I thought this movie sucked!
December 25, 2011 at 5:57 pm
Here in Brazil, the price of the ticket is about the same, but the DVD is much more expensive and it only comes out 1 year after it’s released on cinema, so you don’t really have a choice.

The movie was entertaining but something i wouldnt watch over and over again (even though I have the DVD). How simpsons episodes i watch over and over again. Family Guy has been around 9/10 years and is already boring cuz they really use the same jokes over and over, and the simpsons is more like Smart Suttle Humor, so it’s very different and harder to get old. That’s my two cents. But Ill always love the Simpsons and I have no fear cuz theyll have stories for years like Marge becomes a roboooooooooooot.
Family Guy – Simpsons crossover. It will happen 🙂

@ ronniemation “it was just one long episode.”
Why do people use this as a critique?
Of course it’s like one long episode it’s The Simpsons a normally 22 min show made into a 90 min movie.
That kind of comment is inane.
What exactly were you expecting the movie to be like other then a longer version of The Simpsons?
As for James’ comment about it being nice to not have a CG animated film. The entire film is CG. The Simpsons has been animated on computer for years now.
This movie was CG from start to finish.
October 14, 2012 at 11:16 pm
That depends on how you define CG, since the key animation and the inbetweens are all still hand drawn, even if it’s composited and colored using a computer. Even much more recently that they’ve begun drawing on tablets instead of paper, there’s still no digital inbetweening, so I think that’s still something.

In germany it´s normal to pay 13€ for a ticket.
December 30, 2013 at 7:32 pm
I saw this movie 3 or 4 times in theaters lol
August 4, 2014 at 6:59 pm
yup, the show went downhill but the movie is top notch.
November 22, 2014 at 1:45 pm
The cost of seeing movies in theaters has gotten ridiculous. James, I know you’re a movie maker and that having people see movies in theaters is your life blood, but…jesus. $10 bucks per person (that isn’t even imax or 3D, just regular show) you take your wife or girlfriend and you spend $20 bucks JUST TO GET IN THE DOOR. Buy 1 large popcorn and 2 drinks and that’s another $10. We are now at $30 to see a movie ONCE when I can wait like 3 months and buy the fucking DVD or Blu Ray for $15 or $20 and watch it as many times as I want, get special features, get commentary, and get subtitles because I can’t hear for shit. Movie theaters are going to disappear probably in my lifetime. I’m 32, and I’m confident theaters are going to all but completely disappear before I die. It’s just not worth it to most people. Unless people are willing to lower their profit margin (which they aren’t) prices are just going to keep going up and up and up…until people stop going to movies altogether. And as long as shitty mediocre movies keep coming out, nobody is going to pay the outrageous prices period. It’s not piracy that’s killing hollywood, its their own greed and lack of imagination. When Hollywood starts making a product that people are willing to pay for (and that people are ABLE to pay for) then you’ll see more people going to the movies.
