Storyline

Homer test drives an electric car because it'll get him a gift. The gift is that Homer and Marge get to be part of a test audience for the new film of Mel Gibson, a remake of Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (1939). Everybody loves the film except for Homer, who totally hates it. Because a very insecure Mel Gibson thinks Homer is the only one who dares to speak his mind he asks Homer to help him change the film. Therefore, Mel Gibson takes Homer, Marge, Bart and Lisa to Hollywood. Written by Marco van Hoof <k_luifje7@hotmail.com>

Mr Smith goes to Washington - Homer's version
16 July 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Although perhaps past what many people describe as being its 'peak' 'The Simpsons' is still a great show at this point and this episode is a fine example of that.

Full of great laughs, and a star cameo that actually has some value rather than being just shoved in, it's a fun jab at Hollywood and celeb culture that still holds up all these years later.

A really fun episode.
