During Parent-Teacher Night at school, Ms. Krabappel tells Marge she is troubled by Bart's increasingly demonic behavior. She urges Homer and Marge to be more strict with Bart when it comes to discipline. They try out Krabappel's advice when Bart damages Grampa's dentures in his latest household antics and ground him from supper. Bart realizes he needs to change, but when Homer comes into his room with pizza, he decides he can get away with anything. However, Bart eventually presses his luck. One day when he is asked to watch Maggie, she wanders off and knocks the car in gear, crashing it into Springfield Prison (resulting in a massive jailbreak). This time, Homer decides he needs to be severe with Bart: He can never watch the soon-to-open "The Itchy and Scratchy Movie," a movie that has seen a massive advertising blitz in Springfield. Bart forlornly watches a long line for the movie extend past his house, and as the months pass, he finally realizes he needs to change. Homer tells him... Written by Brian Rathjen <>

A simple secret of Simpsons success
19 August 2009 | by See all my reviews

I have to confess that I find the first 5 episodes of Season 4 a bit too unfocused, or should I say a bit too focused on some supporting characters that are best taken in small doses (Krusty the Clown being #1 on that list). "Itchy & Scratchy: The Movie" brings the focus back on the Simpsons family, where it belongs. The story is very simple: Bart's continuous pranks and failures at school push his parents to the limit, and Homer decides to punish him by not allowing him to watch the newly released in the theaters Itchy & Scratchy Movie. The title of this episode is somewhat misleading: the I&SM is more of a plot device rather than the centerpiece, although there is a great parody of the classic "Steamboat Willie" cartoon and other funny & violent Itchy & Scratchy moments sprinkled throughout. The flash-forward finish is unusual and intriguing, because it seems to present not a possible but a definite future for Homer and Bart. *** out of 4.
