I just saw the movie tonight and I loved it. For a show this great (and I mean that as the mere size of it - 20 years, billions of fans, quoted in every day life) they did a fantastic job.
I won't spoil it for anyone, but I'll give a brief review, lol... cos I saw it first! hehehehe! I read somewhere that it seems like three episodes in one, and I really felt that way too. At one time in the movie I felt like I was watching a Simpsons marathon on TV.
The first half an hour or so was the best. It was just pure gold. I was laughing the whole way through but then as the story kicks in, it kind of gets quite exaggerated and dips a bit and the laughs aren't as big. The middle part of the movie kind of feels like a dragged out episode with a 'movie feel' to it, and it really does drag slightly. However as soon as I was feeling tired of it, it did pick up. There were some great one-liners. Then the end sort of really kicked into the 'movie' gear, with it's epic ending. More great jokes and one-liners, and it ends with you feeling as though it went by too quickly.
I definitely feel like I could go back and watch it again. There were so many good jokes, I'm sure I missed some. All in all, I think it was fantastic. The middle could have been improved, but I'm not really disappointed with it. For a show this big, the movie had to have been big, and it was certainly satisfying for any die-hard Simpsons fan.
