What would Peter Jackson think? (possible spoilers)
2 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Has anyone else noticed that this is the Simpson's version of Heavenly Creatures? I saw Heavenly Creatures in 1994 when it came out in limited release at my college, and it has remained a favorite film of mine. After directing this and Dead Alive, I was surprised to see that Peter Jackson would be the director for the Lord of the Rings films many years later. Lisa is Melanie Lynskey's character Pauline, Juliet is Kate Winslet's character (also named Juliet in the film). The girls are obsessed with Josh Groban, which mirrors the girls' in Heavenly Creatures' obsession with operatic singer Mario Lanza. Lisa and Juliet made up an alternate world called Equalia, counterpart to one called Borovnia in Heavenly Creatures. The Simpsons have made a million references to pop culture, both high and lowbrow, but this one was completely unexpected! I rather liked it, but I can see how someone who hasn't seen Heavenly Creatures would find this episode incredibly weird.
