Popular Broadway actor Gary Johnston is recruited by the elite counter-terrorism organization Team America: World Police. As the world begins to crumble around him, he must battle with terrorists, celebrities and falling in love.
Homer adopts a pig who's run away from Krusty Burger after Krusty tried to have him slaughtered, naming the pig "Spider Pig." At the same time, the lake is protected after the audience sink the barge Green Day are on with garbage after they mention the environment. Meanwhile, Spider Pig's waste has filled up a silo in just 2 days, apparently with Homer's help. Homer can't get to the dump quickly so dumps the silo in the lake, polluting it. Russ Cargill, the villainous boss of the EPA, gives Arnold Schwarzenegger, president of the USA, 5 options and forces him to choose 4 (which is, unfortunately, to destroy Springfield) and putting a dome over Springfield to prevent evacuation. Homer, however, has escaped, along with his family. Can he stop the evil Cargill from annihilating his home town, and his family, who have been forced to return to Springfield?Written by
For the entire month of July 2007, as part of a campaign to hype the July 27th opening of the movie, twelve "7-Eleven" stores all over North America changed their names to Kwik-E-Marts, and begun selling products like Buzz Cola, KrustyO's cereal, Radioactive Man comics, and Squishees, including WooHoo! Blue Vanilla flavor. One store in Burbank, California reported selling over 57,000 sprinkled donuts matching the one featured in the movie poster. Only one of the twelve locations was in Canada, located in Coquitlam, British Columbia (a suburb near Vancouver). See more »
When Homer is forced into the house by Bart and Lisa's avalanche, it is broad daylight, but seconds later he is with Marge in the bedroom and it is dark outside. It is not snow surrounding the house, because the animals come in through the windows. See more »

In televised versions of the movie where no scenes are removed, Bart's full-frontal shot is censored. FX aired a version with Bart's genitals covered by a long horizontal black bar with the words "European Version Only"; when it aired on Australian TV, the bar was only large enough to cover the offending area and had no text.

Homer gets a pig (Spider Pig). The problem is all the poop. He dumps it all into the town lake. Like a straw that broke the camel's back, Springfield becomes an environmental nightmare and the EPA encases the town in a giant dome. The Simpsons family escapes and becomes fugitives.
I am a fan of the Simpsons from the start. Although there has been a decline in quality after so many years, the movie is top rate with lots of hilarious moments. The humor is random at times but the story is not disjointed. It is not simply a series of episodes or segments of scenes. There is a chaotic cohesive story in all of this. The environmental backdrop pulls it all together, and in the end, it is all about family. Homer learns to think of others.
