Had potential, but....
23 April 2016 | by See all my reviews

Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg got to fulfill their dream of writing a Simpsons episode. Even though they probably only wrote 35% of the material and the Simpsons writers took over.

The biggest problem is that the plot has been done before. Homer getting into shape was done in "King of the Hill", no, not the Mike Judge show, but the episode where Homer has to climb the mountain.

Also it is similar to the Radioactive Man movie episode.

Plus, unless you were in show business, you will not find the "Love you....I hate him" joke funny. The writers might have found the joke funny, but the audience don't.

The only joke I did find funny was the test screening.

Sorry, Seth and Evan, but your episode is not good. It's better than the Ricky Gervais episode though.

You know what's funny?

Not this episode.

But the fact that Seth later starred in The Green Hornet that he had to lose weight for.
