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

And it was fine for the 1930s; the country was doing great back then. Everyone was into talking. But now,in whatever year this is, the audience wants action.And seats with beverage holders. But mainly action.
