The good news is that this is not merely a few episodes cobbled together: It's a real movie.

Premiere
If this is in fact merely a longer Simpsons episode, it's a damn good Simpsons episode.

Charlotte Observer
The result is two-tiered humor, broad enough to appeal to anybody but overlaid with jokes that will be funnier if you know the show.

The best thing about this long-awaited feature-length project, a classic Simpsonian interplay of family psychology, social commentary, and brainy visual and verbal jokes tossed off at rat-a-tat speed, is how relaxed it manages to be.

In some ways, it reminded me of the final "Seinfeld" episode. As much as I laughed throughout, I kept wondering what was with all the emotional lessons.

After 18 seasons and some 400 episodes of their Fox TV series, the family created by Matt Groening, the family that put the dys in dysfunctional, makes a seamless transition from the shag carpet to the red carpet in the long-awaited Simpsons Movie.

The Hollywood Reporter
It's caustic, irreverent, constantly amusing and a tiny bit rude. Not a lot, though. This isn't the "Beavis and Butt-Head" or "South Park" movie. It's almost -- dare I say it -- charming.

No one will be bored with the feature film... but everyone who knows the show well will have a nagging feeling that something is missing.

The Simpsons Movie is finally here. And guess what? It's funny. But not that funny.
75
A very funny, solidly entertaining movie that, despite its unshakable obsesion with undergarments, is as sweet as a Kwik-E-Mart Squishee.
75
The movie is funny, sassy and intelligent in that moronic Simpsons' way.
63
Homer even jokes that it takes a sucker to pay for a show you can get for free on TV. D'oh! That hurts.
