The Simpsons Movie: An Average TV Episode

Most of the company went out to see The Simpsons Movie yesterday. It is a very funny movie, full of dumb jokes. But it is not better than most of the "Best of the Simpsons" TV episodes. The movie is different. The colors of the animated characters and scenes, for example, have been greatly enhanced in the wide-screen format. It featured more of good ole Ned Flanders and his sweet family versus acerbic Krusty jokes. Bart's nude scene on a skate board and Homer and Marge's bedroom scene made the movie definitely different but in the end, it was an average TV episode on steroids.

We stopped off at Chilis afterwards to discuss the movie. It was a really nice day.

The creators played it safe, sticking with what they knew best rather than attempting to push the boundaries of what they could do.

Who could blame though? There is a reason they didn't change the formula - it's a winning one!
