A Better Bart in a Relationship Episode,
3 June 2014 | by lesleyharris30See all my reviews

The Bart Wants What It Wants is a brilliant Simpsons episode with a very well written storyline with a ton if really funny scenes.Its a better episode about Bart having a girlfriend,these episodes usually try really hard to be heartwarming in sort if a romantic comedy type of way,but this episode is just really fun and dosen't get too into romance.My favourite scenes in this episode are from Rainer Wolfcastle,he isn't used very commonly on the show but when he is he is hilarious,he such a ridiculous character and Harry Shearer does a great Arnold Schwarzenegger impression.The Bart Wants What It Wants is a really enjoyable Simpsons episode.

Bart starts dating movie star Rainier Wolfcastle's daughter Greta (voiced by Reese Witherspoon),but Bart breaks it off when she is much interested in spending time with him than he is with her.But when she starts dating Milhouse,Bart gets jealous and try's to win her back.
