When the Simpsons arrive in Palm Corners, Marge is driving in the middle of the road. Even if this is a one-way road, the road is wide enough to accommodate two cars driving. There's even a line the car is straddling. See more »

A laugh here and there
5 January 2007 | by See all my reviews

This episode is decent but it is certainly not a 10 out of 10. One would have to had missed every episode from season 4 through season 10 to say that this is the the funniest Simpson's episode ever. Humor in the Simpson's traditionally is on a higher level than what was portrayed in this episode. It is funny on occasion, but the whole idea of the Simpson's going to spring break is just the producers (probably the Fox Network mostly) trying to pander to ignorant MTV loyalists. This could have very well been a Family Guy episode. Episodes like this are pretty much the beginning of the black whole of mediocrity that the Simpson's fell into for a few years and are just recently getting out of.
