The Simpson Movie
We have always been die-hard Simpson fans, and so we were ecstatic to hear they were making a full-length film. My husband and I went to see The Simpson Movie yesterday and it was hilarious. It was the first movie in a long while where the entire audience was laughing out loud. I was also surprised to see so many children in the audience, considering how the film makes fun of everything from religion, different ethnic stereotypes, environmentalists and the EPA, government and human beings in general. I won't tell anything about the film since it is just released and don't want to give it away and ruin your fun. But I will say the one thing that is standard that always prevails in Simpson cartoons, and is the same in this new film...through thick and thin, family sticks together no matter what and a close family endures no matter how strange they are, no matter how crazy or what mistakes they might make. No matter how quirky, sarcastic, crude or stupid they might be, they are basically good people at heart. The Simpson marriage endures, and family loyalty prevails.
