Spider-Pig, Spider-Pig, does whatever a Spider-Pig does. Can he swing, from a web? No he can't, he's a pig, Look out! He is a Spider-Pig.

Did anyone else enjoy this movie as much as I did? :)

Oh yes I did.

I love the Simpsons, and the movie did not disappoint.

The film earned $30,758,269 on its opening day in the U.S. making it the 22nd-highest, and fifth-highest non-sequel opening day revenue of all time. It grossed a combined total of $74,036,787 in its opening weekend on 5,500 screens at 3,922 theaters, reaching the top of the box office for that weekend. This made it the fifth-highest revenue of all time, for an opening weekend in July, and highest among non-sequels, and the highest animated TV adaptation of all time. This outperformed the expectations of $40 million that Fox had for the release.

It set several American box office records, including highest grossing opening weekend for a non-CG animated film and for a film based on a television series, surpassing Mission: Impossible II. It was also the third-highest grossing opening weekend for an animated film. It opened at the top of the international box office taking $96 million from 71 overseas territories, including $27.8 million in the United Kingdom, the second-highest UK opening ever for a 20th Century Fox film. It contributed to over half of the record 5.5 million people attending British cinemas that weekend. In Australia, it grossed $13.2 million, the third-highest opening weekend in the country, and the highest for an animated film. The UK is the highest-grossing country for the film outside the US, with Germany in second place with a $36,289,250 gross overall.The film closed on December 20, 2007 with a worldwide gross of $527,068,706, making it the eighth highest grossing film of 2007.

From its very first frame the movie is through and through The Simpsons and its creators have taken the time and care to make this worth a trip to the theater rather than waiting for another syndicated rerun to come on.

The film garnered a 90% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with 166 of a total 185 reviews being determined as positive. It received a rating of 80 out of 100 (signifying "generally favorable reviews") on Metacritic from 36 reviews. British newspapers The Guardian and The Times both gave the film four out of five stars. The Times' James Bone said that it "boasts the same sly cultural references and flashes of brilliance that have earned the television series a following that ranges from tots to comparative literature PhDs".

Alright, can we cut out with the f*cking bots? This is just pure annoying. Either that, or people need to stop quoting from sites.



Also, the simpsons movie wasnt that great. It was more like a simpsons special that could have easily been made for tv.
