Movie review – The Simpsons Movie

I am not sure how other bloggers are doing it, but in my case, I am getting inspiration pretty much from very recent experiences (time spent together with friends, activities I’ve undertaken, my Mom’s visit, etc.)… This post will not be the exception. I recently went with a very good friend of mine (J) to watch The Simpsons Movie. Now, full disclaimer: I had no idea about the Simpsons until he loaned me Season 1. I was perhaps one of the very few people in North America who didn’t understand references to the Simpsons (M used to tell me “thank you, come again” with an Apu-like voice and I wouldn’t get what she was referring to).

Anyhow, J wanted to watch it and I wasn’t about to say no (he’s sort of a die-hard fan and it was nice to share the movie together). Anyhow, I loved it. I laughed like I had not laughed in years, and at one point I couldn’t stop until tears welled my eyes. It is a really funny movie. Granted, it has an environmental theme and given that environmental affairs are issues that are near and dear to my heart, I was particularly pleased that these topics were touched upon.

Of course, it would really help if you actually had watched The Simpsons before going into the movie, but in my case, I was a neophyte and I still could understand everything that was said in the movie, so no complaints here.

On opening night, the Rio Theatre (on Broadway near Commercial) had organized a movie launch party, so I am guessing you can still see it there. Other venues include the Scotiabank Theatre (Smithe and Burrard). I’d seriously recommend the movie. And “thank you, come again”.

SO glad to hear all the positive reviews so far about the movie. I’m totally looking forward to seeing it and after growing up with the show over its 18 seasons I was REALLY scared it would disappoint, although even the trailer made me laugh “spider pig, spider pig”
