God bless the Simpsons even if this is not their shiniest moment. If we're talking spin-offs, I have to give the nod to the the Hit & Run video game.

"So, you want some of my electricity, do you? Well, for once, the rich white man is in control." Imagine an average episode of The Simpsons. Now imagine it stretched out to movie length, with a little bit more of a risqu element added than what they could get away with on television. That's The Simpson's Movie in a nutshell. Now imagine the last Simpson's episode you saw that was pretty funny, but not good enough to rank among your very favorites. That's how I felt about this movie. I remember it being pretty hilarious the first time I saw it, but I think some of that may have just been the theater atmosphere and the novelty of watching The Simpsons on the big screen. The second time around, it doesn't hold up quite so well. Lots of amusing moments, but few jokes that go beyond that. The best comedies (and the best Simpsons episodes) are the ones that are still very funny after the first viewing. The Simpson's Movie doesn't quite meet that standard. It's a must-see for fans and a worthwhile diversion for general audiences, but once is probably enough.
