One of the best things that I can think of to sum up this film is that it felt like I was watching it in the usual half hour slot. No sooner had it started than it was over, but in a good way, at least that's how it felt. Let me explain.
Many many movies are adapted from TV, and mostly they fail to live up to expectation. They usually look like a normal 30 minute episode which has been padded out simply because they run out of ideas. Well not this show guys! This film certainly doesn't run out of steam. I laughed and laughed and almost cried with laughter as Homer and Bart sat on the roof of their house while Homer was attempting to nail in a slate. Taking great care with the hammer he slowly moves the hammer up and down, in readiness to hit the nail. Then, with a big swing he brings up the hammer.... and stabs himself in the eye!! Brilliantly funny, and certainly hit the nail on the head with me. Homer and the pig is just soooo silly... if you don't laugh then you'd better ask Santa for a 'laughing module' to be inserted into your brain next Christmas.
Perhaps a few people were expecting too much? But me, I loved it, and everyone I know loved it too. I watched it at the cinema and have the movie for Christmas, though I have watched it 3 times already.
