Storyline

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, president of the USA, 5 options and forces 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 movieguy3

Trivia

(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 »

Goofs

(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 long overdue simpsons movie is a hilarious and witty piece of entertainment
25 July 2007 | by See all my reviews

The simpsons movie is witty,fast paced, touching, hugely entertaining and most importantly: laugh out loud funny.And if your a simpsons fan who's loved every episode , thats all you'll need from it.

However if , like me , your an obsessive fan who's noticed a drop in quality on the show from the late nineties onwards you'll see some problems. You'll see that structure wise the movie is basically an extended episode.You'll notice that the villain is a Hank Scorpio rip off. You'll feel that a lot of the plot points and character drama seem all too familiar.But in spite of all this , in spite of being a film based on a show that exhausted its best gags long ago, the simpsons movie is still absolutely hilarious and i take my hat off to the creators for managing to make it so.

A simpsons movie in the early nineties (when the show was in its prime) would have been better, but the very , very , very funny one we have here in '07 works just fine. Funny stuff.
