See where some of "The Simpsons" got their inspiration!
26 April 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Difficult to find in many locales, this film is (in my group at least) a classic! Obviously, many of the jokes/pranks Bart Simpson (from the television show "The Simpsons") perpetrates came from this film or were directly inspired by it--especially note the threats from the bartender in Red and compare that to what Moe says to Bart in several episodes!

A fine movie, obviously shot on a very small budget, that nonetheless shows that good acting, a fine story, and interesting situations can be all that's needed--and not blockbuster effects.

Independent film at its finest. Go see!
