A good one
2 March 2008 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

Despite the handicap of having a not so promising plot that has Abraham and Selma fall in love (which actually turns out to be sweet on a weird level), this does have a lot of moments that had me rolling on the floor laughing, not in the least because of the little B-plot that involves Bart and Lisa making a fort out of boxes. Surrealism at its best. The best moment comes though when Homer, in an attempt to break up this rather disgusting couple, disguises himself as a Latino smooth guy by the name of Esteban De La Sexface. It's been a while since I've had such a good time with the Simpsons, this is the kind of episode that makes me want them to go on for some time again.
