Storyline

It is decided that a film festival should be held to put Springfield on the map and cinema critic Jay Sherman comes to town and stays with the Simpsons. Various people submit films that they have made to win the critics' prize, from Burns' blockbuster presenting him as an epic hero to Barney's strangely poetic monochrome short, but the most popular choice seems to be George C. Scott in 'Man Getting Hit With a Football'. Written by don @ minifie-1
