I'm confused as to how people believe this is a 5 star movie, unless the episodes of the Simpsons those people like the best are the ones where Homer gets "assaulted" by a panda. To me, the film only highlighted the problems that this show has had for the better part of a decade. What was the point of Lisa? What was the point of the pig, apart from a shallow plot device? Remember when the Simpsons had a surreal look on everyday stories? Yeah, not any more. Springfield is in a dome! What biting political satire! Even Itchy and Scratchy failed to be funny because it went on too long. Were this a stand-alone movie, or even a family guy movie, i may have liked it. But it wasn't, it was the Simpsons, which used to be the best show on television. Now its the wacky adventures of mean spirited selfish idiot Homer and his wacky pals. Do yourself a favour and watch the series 3-8 golden age of the Simpsons before you go declaring this the best film ever, because it is an embarrassment compared to those excellent episodes.
