The Simpsons Movie

I went to see the Simpsons movie on a whim the other day and as former editor of the comic I do of course have the supreme opinion on this lol. kidding.
it's a cool little movie - made me laugh a lot - fave jokes were 'boob lady' and code black/carl. oh and bart's thing of course.
it was missing something though - like a reason for the movie in the first place. like, as bad as a fully 'real-actor' movie would have been (like the Flintstones ones) they could have maybe done a real-world segment. or maybe have a big superhero section. i dunno - it did need something extra, like the halloween eps often offer.
ah well, just praise the lord there was no musical number in it - i haaate them.

I seem to recall seeing an interview with Simpsons creator Matt Groening in which he said that the orginal plan was for the Simpsons film to be an out-and-out musical, but, one by one, all the songs got cut, until, at the end, it was just a straight comedy.

So, you could have had it worse :)

(also, why didn't they do some cool movie skit on the credits sequence couch gag? missed opportunities!)

Is it better or worse than the South Park movie?

as much as i love South Park, i didn't really enjoy the SP Movie - so i'd say Simpsons was better for me.
