Fun Episode but Certainly Could Have Been Better,, 30 September 2014
Author: Dillon Harris from Ireland

Wedding for Disaster is a great Simpsons episode with a very well written storyline and some very funny scenes.I liked this episode,but judging from its story matter I certainly think it could have been better,the idea of Marge and Homer having a real wedding seemed great,but it just didn't deliver as much as I had hoped.My favourite parts of the episode were certainly the Saw parody,which was hilarious,and Sideshow Bobs cameo,although I would have liked Bob to have a more important role.Wedding for Disaster is a very fun Simpsons episode.

After Reverend Lovejoy discovers that he wasn't legally able to marry Homer and Marge at the time,they decide to have their first real wedding,but it ends up being a lot more complicated that the long time couple expected.
