Review: The Simpsons

Aaah, finally something that I can watch while snuggling under the blanket on a cold night with a hot beverage in my hand. Except that I’ll probably spill a mouthful of hot coffee all over the bedding for laughing out loud.

The Simpson’s is genuinely funny, positively heartwarming and a certain scene(you will know if you watch it) brought a sliver of tear to my eye. It is irreverent, slapstick, smart ass humour, ridiculous and satirical; a poke and jibe at organized religion, enviromentalism and politics in the US of A.

The plot drives well, and you’ll probably appreciate that it did, because the last thing anybody wants watching Bart skateboard naked from home to Krusty’s is a storyline suckier than Lake Springfield. Ooops, spoilers there. And true to the spirit that made Simpsons the beloved American family worldwide, it is the characters who actually carry the weight of the movie, not their reputation as a 90s cultural icon. Which is a good thing actually, considering how stale and flat Spiderman and Shrek was trying to coast to the box office on nothing more than a candy floss of movie-making.

I shall say that it is not a children’s show. It puts sex into sexy, and language into vulgarity. But it also puts intelligence into dumb humour and entertaining the thought that Arnold Schwarzaneggar could be the next US President probably will comfort us Malaysians with the politicians we are stuck with.
