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 55 minutes) In the wedding video, Homer and Marge dance to the song "Close to You" by The Carpenters. In The Simpsons: The Way We Was (1991), this same song was played in a flashback scene of Homer seeing Marge for the very first time. See more »
(at around 23 mins) Hans Moleman is present when Homer dumps the silo in the lake, but nobody finds out it was Homer until the silo is discovered. But Hans doesn't have good eyesight and isn't very quick on the uptake. There is also a The Simpsons running gag where in several episodes Hans disappears and is presumed dead, only to turn up alive in a later episode, so this could be his disappearance for the course of the movie.

The DVD release includes a tongue-in-cheek disclaimer by the Environmental Protection Agency disassociating itself from the way it is portrayed in the film. The disclaimer appears on screen before the standard FBI anti-copying warning. See more »
Just got out of the theater. Don't get me wrong, I was entertained throughout the duration of the film. But I rarely got any belly laughs out of it. And I just wanted it to be...well, smarter and funnier.
The animation and production values are awesome. Just seeing Springfield and all the characters on the big screen is enough to make this movie worth going to. But I was rather let down in terms of the comedy. It seemed like it was dumbed down to give it more mass appeal and that's disappointing. I also had annoying little kids sitting around me and their father refused to shut them up...which somewhat ruined the experience. The first 45 min are good, then it dips in humor.
In conclusion, while the South Park movie took advantage of the new medium by pushing the envelope and producing hilarious, brilliant satire...The Simpsons Movie seems to do the opposite, getting watered down in the process.
