Woo-hoo!

Saw The Simpsons movie today. FUN! I laughed so hard!


I think I laughed hardest over Martin embracing his inner bully. BWAH! And of course, Bart's doodle! Ahhh, hilarity! No, wait, the funniest part had to be the two gay cops! I DIED of laughter!

I thought we'd see more of the minor characters, but most of them just had cameos. Hey, were Patty and Selma even IN this? They were credited at the end but I don't recall seeing them at all.

But hey, y'know, Albert Brooks? Not that funny. Kinda not funny at all. I HATE the "voices" he does for The Simpsons because it's always exactly the same voice and they're never funny, like that Bond-esque villain and that juvie boot camp guy. Times like this, I really miss Phil Hartman *wipes tear*

The Homer & Marge get undressed by animals thing -- eh, also not too funny. But mostly, I was laughing. A LOT. Ask deej240z, who drove all the way to my neck of the woods to see it with me!

Anyway, I highly recommend to all Simpsons fans! And OMG, I almost wet myself over that Bourne trailer. WANT. NOW.

And answers are up at my music meme, complete with era-appropriate vids! :) Can you believe more people i.d.'d a '90s Irish band with basically one hit over one of the great rock bands of all time? There just aren't that many bands led by red-haired chicks, are there?

The movie was pretty funny. But I'm surprised to say that the best part, for me, was the video Marge made for Homer, because even though it's a cartoon and stuff, I was still kinda moved when she was like, "And to prove to myself this is really the end, I taped over our wedding video." Sad. Maybe it's because I wasn't expecting that from a movie that's primarily comedy, but for some reason, that part really stuck with me.

I went with my Dad, and he couldn't stop singing 'Spider Pig' for hours.

Awww! You big sensitive sweetie! :) That was a big deal for Marge, definitely! She deserves better than Homer but what are you gonna do? Everyone was against Homer in this movie, weren't they? (Oops, I just typed "ep" instead of movie!)

And bwah, Spider Pig! LOL. That WAS funny. Deej was upset that we didn't find out what happened to Spider Pig in the end. We even stayed until the very last of the credits!

Oh, also, I was distracted from the angst of her taping over the wedding video by the lack of continuity regarding their marriage -- they married at a crappy little chapel in Vegas (or was it Reno) and there were no family members there! And then, dependong on the various episodes, Homer either ate the entire wedding cake by himself or he got her a cheap cake that said "to a whale of a wife!" I know, you can't insist on continuity with the Simpsons, but still!

I want to see the Simpsons movie too! Might have to drag the whole family out to see it! And I can't believe there aren't so many red-haired women leading bands... I so feel the urge to look for some, but I fear you are right! man, you got me wanting to do this meme! (Not like I haven't got 50 other things I should be doing...)

It was very funny, although it can't beat most of the best episodes. Still, I really enjoyed it! :)

And hee, I spent WAY too much time on that darn meme! But it's fun to guess, so I won't stop you from doing it yourself, LOL!

Good! Glad you enjoyed it! I'm sure I will too!

Oh, i spent way too long on the meme too, but i finally did it and my flist made a pretty good job of guessing too, though i had to give some clues for the last one!

They were saying that the movie had it's moments of not funny but on the whole it was freakin' hilarious.

It looks nuts! I do miss Phil Hartman, I totally do as well.

Wait, was there Hot House Flowers on the meme...must go look again!!

Agreed, there were moments of "meh" followed by laughing my ass off! So, for the most part, I'd rank it as very funny. And damn, Phil Hartman was the best. Although I also love Kelsey Grammer but there was no Sideshow Bob. Oh well. We'll always have 18 years worth of eps!

No, no Hot House Flowers! ;) Wow, that's a blast from the past!

I saw it this weekend, too, and really enjoyed it! I loved the gay cops, but most of the theater kind of went "Ewwww". *sigh* During the trailers I started to turn to whisper to my son, "What a bunch of crappy movies!", but just then they showed the Bourne trailer. Yay! I know what I'm doing next weekend.

Awww, I saw it in a great, liberal-minded theater, I guess, because that scene got "woo-hooed" along with everything else. Or maybe that was just me, drowning everyone else out, LOL! But c'mon, The Simpsons is SO gay! Smithers! Lenny & Carl! Homer always cross-dressing! ;) Anyway, yes very funny!

And BOURNE!! I cannot wait. That and the SImpsons movie are really the only 2 movies I care about this summer. (And then 3:10 to Yuma after that! ;D)

I can't wait for 3:10 to Yuma. There's a point in the trailer where Russell Crowe gives Christian Bale this look and I thought, OMG they're doing it! I had my slash-goggles on! I bet there's going to be some fic coming from that movie.
