Screen/Society--"The Simpsons Movie" (2007) 35mm Weekend Matinee
The Simpsons Movie
(David Silverman, 2007, 87 min, USA, English, color, 35mm)
Almost twenty years of fan anticipation finally paid off with this big-screen extravaganza, which pits Homer Simpson against the Albert Brooks-voiced head of the Environmental Protection Agency, struggling for the soul and survival of Springfield. See Bart and Flanders bond! See Homer do a daring motorcycle ride inside a metal cage! See an incontinent pig called Harry Plopper threaten to toxify Lake Springfield! See the boldest small-to-big screen animated adventure of them all!
"The Simpsons Movie is full of the anarchic, generous, good-natured humor that is the show's enduring signature." A.O. Scott, New York Times
