The action starts when Lake Springfield is practically destroyed by excessive pollution; and so the town must clean it up. They do! Unfortunately, however, things don't stay that way--and there begins the REAL plot of this film. Homer (voiced by Dan Castellaneta) decides to take on a pig for a house pet. When Marge (voiced by Julie Kavner) casually asks Homer what he's doing with the pig's "leavings;" Homer takes Marge out back and shows her his "silo" full of pig "droppings." Marge isn't too happy; and eventually Homer realizes he MUST get rid of the festering silo. Naturally, where does Homer go to get rid of the silo? Lake Springfield! Once again the lake is unbelievably contaminated.
Russ Cargill (voiced by Albert Brooks) is in charge of the EPA and he sets out to rectify the problem. What happens? Springfield is enwrapped by a huge, impenetrable dome--and then wiped off the map. The residents of Springfield are furious at Homer; and sooner rather than later The Simpsons must flee. They go to Alaska in search of freedom from the infuriated residents of Springfield.
Worse yet, Russ Cargill and President Schwarzenegger (voiced by Harry Shearer) hatch a plan to bomb Springfield so that it will never again pose a problem. This really raises the stakes.
From here the plot can go anywhere. What will Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie do? Will they stay in Alaska where it's safe or will they return to Springfield to try to rescue the people there from being killed by the bomb?Read more ›
In THE SIMPSONS MOVIE, Homer almost single handedly destroys Springfield while also threatening the existence of life on the rest of the planet. Things start off simply enough with a Green Day concert that turns into a disaster. Then the next day at church Grampa Simpson makes a prophecy of doom that seems to be a message sent by God. Marge believes the message and tries to decipher the meaning while everyone else thinks Grampa was just rambling like the old man he is. Lisa finds love with a new boy named Colin who shares the same passions as she does. Meanwhile, Homer dares Bart to skateboard naked to Krusty Burger and Bart bares his "doodle" for the whole world to see. It turns out to be the most embarrassing moment of Bart's life. He starts to view Homer in a negative light and see Ned Flanders as the kind, loving, and caring father that he is. Later, Homer saves a pig from being slaughtered by Krusty and names him Spider-Pig.Read more ›
Also, remember the film The Adams Family? A lot of people got caught up on the fact that it seemed choppy. It seemed choppy because they tried to do a strip cartoon format (TAF started off as a strip cartoon) with a full-length feature. It works fine for something short, like say 30 minutes or under, but can tire and confuse the audience if they get a solid hour and a half of it, and I think the makers of this film took that into consideration as they put together a film somewhat more plot-driven than its TV counterpart.
In a nutshell, they had to slow things down a little bit in order to work in a story line that was clear enough to keep the audience focused on the movie for the entire time. But there's a lot that's funny in this movie, typical Simpson's stuff, along with one or two things that they probably wouldn't even put on prime time. Plus it's just cool to see a movie and have it be The Simpsons.

Mr. Keith Bluebaum, the guy/gal that originally posted his/her comments had a valid complaint about the insert. When was the last time you purchased a big time movie and it had nothing inside the case except the disc? When I opened mine, I was wondering if they forgot the inserts as well. This... Read More

|blu-ray or standard dvd?||
It's wrong that high definition doesn't matter that much with cartoons - actually, you can tell the difference even more with cartoons on Blu-Ray over standard DVD, because it's a cartoon, all the lines look crisper and the colors are brighter. Cartoons in HD are great!

I was a bit disappointed that the "Simpsons Movie" was released in lieu of the season 11 set, especially since it's taking a long time as it is to get these released. I'm sort of hoping seasons 11, 12 & 13 will be released in 2008. Probably just wishful thinking, but it would sure be...
