Everyone in the theatre is a sucker!

I've watched The Simpsons Movie in theatre last Saturday.

In the beginning of the movie, the Simpsons family is watching the Itchy and Scratchy movie in the theatre. Then, Homer complains about having to pay to see it on the big screen: "I can't believe we're paying to see something we get on TV for free. Everyone in this theatre is a sucker!" (his finger is pointing at the audience -- us!)

True... Why are we paying to see something we get on TV for free?
Well... The Simpsons Movie is a very funny movie. I've laughed from beginning till the end. It gives you 1.5 hours of fun and laughs. Is it worth the movie ticket??

Here are some of the funny parts... Don't read on if you haven't seen the movie!
  • After betting with Homer, Bart skateboards naked.
  • Homer plays with the lovable Spider-Pig / Harry Plopper.
  • U.S. President Arnold Schwarzenegger orders Springfield to be enclosed in a dome and, later, to be destroyed.
  • Tom Hanks acts as Tom Hanks in commercials.
  • etc.
Overall, I think the movie is too short. It mainly focuses on the Simpsons. Other interesting characters, like Mr. Burns and Krusty the clown, only appear in 2 - 3 scenes. Santa's Little Helper is not even in the movie. I wish the movie could be longer.
