Took the family to see this a couple of days ago... and really wish we hadn't bothered. We're a family of fans, so the show usually gets an airing most days. Perhaps we're glutted on it, but I found it to be one of the most pointless and dull cinema experiences I've ever had.

There's a bit at the start where Homer takes the piss out of people paying to see something they can get for free on TV... and therein lies the problem. You have seen this on TV. It plays like one of the compilation shows. The biggest annoyance is that the TV shows actually have better writing. Not only have you seen this before - but you've seen it done better.

I don't particularly care for the Simpsons full stop.

I agree. I felt that I'd paid money for an extended episode of The Simpsons and even then it wasn't much good. I suppose I was hoping that they'd go back to their old style as I think the series has declined in the past few years, IMO.

The abysmal imitation of an Irish accent from one of the characters didn't help my opinion of the film either. ;)
