what i'm watching: the simpsons movie

We watched The Simpsons Movie last night, and we both loved it. It's really funny.

I purposely hadn't read about it, so I didn't know what to expect. I was surprised that parts of it were very heavy, even profound. The overall theme is human survival and the survival of Earth. Very impressive.

The only thing I had heard about the movie was "Bart's doodle": full frontal nudity! I saw one review that said, to paraphrase, "You only see it for a second, what's the big deal?" The big deal is that the "doodle" sequence is hilarious. We were both wholeheartedly laughing out loud.

Two thumbs-up on this one. Worth owning, I think.

Sounds like fun. I practically never watch movies, but Dad gave me Ratatouille yesterday, and then we all crowded around my computer and watched it. It was pretty good. First time I've watched a movie on my computer and now I think I should start taking a few out of the library. I'll look for the Simpsons.

I should say it's funny if you're a fan of The Simpsons show in the first place. If you're not, I don't know.

I don't know if I'm a fan of the Simpsons or not... no TV! I think I probably would like it. If I can get it from the library, it's certainly worth trying.

Oh yes, now I remember. Hence movies on your computer. Enjoy.
