As far as I’m aware, there are only two people in the world who have never watched an episode of The Simpsons: movie critic David Stratton, and my father-in-law, Bill Wakelin, who famously asked, upon being given a Bart Simpson mug for Christmas, “Is this some type of cartoon character?”
After 18 seasons and over 400 episodes, The Simpsons has finally hit the big screen.
One of the assignments in my non-fiction class this year was to write a review of a book, movie or restaurant. What better subject than a movie starring Springfield’s favourite family?
You can see my review of the movie on the SBS Movie Show site.
Let me know what you think.
By the way, the word count prevented me from having a whinge about the paucity of screen time for C. Montgomery Burns. The old bugger shone despite limited opportunities.
