DVD Review: The Simpsons Movie

Posted in Film, Reviews

The Simpsons Movie charts our favourite yellow family’s first venture onto the big screen. Homer and his new pet pig tip Springfield’s pollution levels over the balance, leading the EPA cover the town with a humongous dome. The Simpsons manage to escape but after hearing of plans to blow up Springfield, rush back to save the day.

Sadly, the story stutters, feeling like three episodes patched together by a few random sketches, but that shouldn’t necessarily put you off. The Simpsons Movie will still have you chuckling throughout and looks better than ever with the Hollywood treatment, just don’t expect it to match up to your favourite classic episodes.

A few deleted scenes, the obligatory commentaries and a handful of hilarious American Idol and Jay Leno set-ups complete the experience nicely.
