Simpsons Movie

Prepare yourself for some very unexpected news. The Simpsons Movie is actually good. In fact, it's not just good. It's great! The film is laced with enough in-jokes and subtleties to please any diehard fan, and enough dick/fart/drug jokes to please even the most casual of fans.

The film has been 18 seasons and 400 plus episodes in the making, and many people (including myself) had serious doubts about whether or not the writers could pull it off. Luckily, Matt Groening and Jim Brooks assembled an all-star cast of Simpsons writers, many of whom wrote during the Simpsons' golden era. These writers included David Mirkin, Mike Reiss, John Vitti, and the mother of all Simpsons writers, John Swartzwelder. All in all, this staff room screenplay packed a punch, and proved able to sustain itself over 90 minutes.

The film is beautiful. The film is hilarious. The film...its the Simpsons Movie. Now go see it.
