The Simpsons Movie

stm00.jpgBelieve it or not,I have been watching the Simpsons more than 10 years now! UK and Malaysia, both ways I enjoyed the show and seasons though it was rerun few times but it was so entertaining to watch again that i don’t even mind they repeat some seasons.

Simpsons eventually made it to the cinema big screens and was released on the 27th July, which was my birthday. To be honest with you, this year’s birthday of mine was in fact being surprised by 2 of my favorite show of all time – Transformers and Simpsons! Coincidence??

…when child protection was taken lightly

So what was installed in the movie? Well, just like any average half hour show, the source of comedy definitely comes from Homer if it is not from Bart. Cos the 2 males are the craziest characters in the show surpassing Marge, Lisa & the semi-notorious Maggie.

Maggi’s portrayal of violence

The story centres on idiotic Homer who adopts a runaway pig from Krusty’s Burger advertisement from being slaughtered. He named the pig as ‘Spider Pig’ and dotes the pig more than he dotes his kids. Bart felt left out and befriends their next door neighbour, the Flenders.

He is too stupid sometimes. Abhorrent to the minds.

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 the silo that Homer built in just 2 days. Seeing that the silo pose a threat in his HOME, Homer can’t get to the dump quickly so dumps the silo in the lake, thus polluting it. All the wildlife surrounding the sector undergone mutation thus producing new species of hideous and monstrous species.

Homer to the rescue…NOT!

Russ Cargill, the villainous boss of the EPA, gives Arnold Schwarzenegger (who was Prez of US of A that time) 5 options, forcing him to choose 4 (which is, unfortunately, to destroy Springfield) and putting a dome over Springfield to prevent evacuation. The purpose is to let them all rot and die there. Homer, however, has escaped, along with his family through a secret sinkhole in their backyard that Maggie has discovered.

Another portrayal of violence, hence a traditional family practice.

The family flees to seek better life in Alaska, but when the head of the EPA, Russ Cargill, orders the towns destruction, the Simpsons had a made a pledge to save their town at all cost and to prove his worth, Homer travelled to Springfield to stop the destruction by shattering the dome with his partner in crime, Bart.

In Springfield, Lisa convinces the locals to clean up the polluted Lake Springfield after the sinking of the stage of the Green Day in a concert of rock and roll. Meanwhile, Homer saves a pig from being killed in Krusty Burger and adopts it, calling the animal Spider Pig. After two days, Spider Pig fills up a silo with its excrement and Homer dumps the silo in the lake, polluting it.

Happily ever after.

The show was rather entertaining, lewd and obscene, at times nonsensical as the plot was based on a silly plot that became increasingly stupid towards the end. Audience enjoy the antics that the family brought in, just like the cartoon series.
