Homer adopts a pig who's run away from Krusty Burger after Krusty tried to have him slaughtered, naming the pig "Spider Pig." At the same time, the lake is protected after the audience sink the barge Green Day are on with garbage after they mention the environment. Meanwhile, Spider Pig's waste has filled up a silo in just 2 days, apparently with Homer's help. Homer can't get to the dump quickly so dumps the silo in the lake, polluting it. Russ Cargill, the villainous boss of the EPA, gives Arnold Schwarzenegger 5 options, forcing him to choose 4 (which is, unfortunately, to destroy Springfield) and putting a dome over Springfield to prevent evacuation. Homer, however, has escaped, along with his family. Can he stop the evil Cargill from annihilating his home town, and his family, who have been forced to return to Springfield? Written by
(at around 59 minutes) When Homer dreams of going up and down through several truncated stairs into the "Boob Lady" tent, is an homage to the 1951 art work of M.C. Escher titled "House of Stairs." See more »
(at around 4 mins) At the start of the movie the church is shown set back from the street (as it is in The Simpsons), in later scenes (at around 27 mins) it is shown right by the road, next door to Moe's Tavern. On the DVD commentary, the film makers decided it would make more sense to have the church next to the bar since there is a scene where the alcoholics in the bar go pray and the worshipers of the church go drink. But they either forgot or were unable to go back and fix the other scene to make it consistent. See more »

Two songs play during the credits: a version of "Spider-Pig" and a hastily prepared Springfield anthem. See more »
Let me just say I had my doubts. The last couple of seasons of 'The Simpsons' have been lackluster at best and I genuinely thought that their chance to make a great Simpsons film passed roughly 10 years ago. BOY WAS I WRONG!!! I am a huge Simpsons nerd and it is my privilege to say that "The Simpsons Movie" belongs in the very small group of classic Simpsons episodes ("Bart the Daredevil", "Mr. Plow", etc.) Very funny and very timely. Great animation and some nice cameos.
Really don't want to give any spoilers so I'll just say if you're a Simpsons fan: you will love this movie. And if you agree that the Simpsons lost their edge, you will be pleasantly surprised as was I. 8.5/10
