After 17 years on the small screen, The Simpsons finally made it to the silver screen in 2007. Find out if this feature-length movie is worth picking up on DVD with Kidzworld's review.

Your favorite animated family has finally made the transition from small screen to silver screen - and now back to the small screen again with The Simpsons Movie DVD! Do the Simpsons triumph or fall flat? Find out with Kidzworld's review!

The Simpsons - The End of the World As We Know It

The Simpsons Movie starts out with the whole town of Springfield catching a Green Day show at Lake Springfield. That is until the pollution in the lake begins to eat away at the band's barge, and they subsequently drown. Lisa sets out on a crusade to convince the town to clean up their act and is joined by a cute new Irish boy named Colin.

The Simpsons - Mob Mentality

It takes some creative persuading, but Lisa and Colin convince the town to stop dumping in Lake Springfield. Of course, there always has to be a spoil sport - and in the Simpsons world, that's usually Homer! Tired of waiting at the line-up at the dump, Homer takes a silo full of pig poo (you're going to have to see the movie to see where it came from!) and dumps it in the newly protected lake! His irresponsible act throws the town's ecosystem completely out of whack and forces the United States government to act drastically - by sealing the town off in a giant glass dome.

The Simpsons - Same Old, Same Old

One crazy event after the other sparks the Simpsons family to escape from the dome and head off to greener pastures... in Alaska. This isn't the first time the family has packed up and started new, but they always end up back in their beloved Springfield. And this time is no different. When the family gets news that the government plans on blowing up Springfield, Marge and the kids are determined to head back to save their home and their friends. Homer has other ideas. As the plot unfolds, the flick feels more and more like a longer version of a regular episode - which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but it's not great either.

The Simpsons - DVD Features

This DVD's special features include two audio commentaries where the actors, director, producers, animators, and writers give you the inside scoop on making this highly anticipated movie. Fans of Springfield's favorite family will learn secrets from behind the scenes and enjoy five deleted scenes and five more funny promos. There's also an alternate ending and Simpson appearances on American Idol and The Tonight Show. If you just can't get enough of Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, and Maggie, this DVD will be a great addition to your collection.

The Simpsons - Bottom Line

At the beginning of The Simpson Movie, Homer pokes fun at people paying to see a show they get on TV for free. Unfortunately, his satire kind of rings true. Why would you pay to see a super long episode of The Simpsons? Why would you buy the DVD? Well, if you're a die-hard fan, being in a crowded theater, surrounded by other die-hard fans is a pretty cool experience and having the DVD at home to watch anytime you want sounds pretty good too. If you're not that into the show, watch some re-runs. They'll probably be funnier.

The Simpsons Movie Rating:3

Take Asami for example. A lot of people have a late relative and another relative involved in some kind of trouble. She had her relationships AND family business to take care of, which relates to some of today's youth who feel like they have the whole world on their shoulders. They're starting to have to take responsibility for things they can hardly manage, and seeing the triumph of a character like Asami is truly inspiring. Her mother's dead, her father's in prison, her boyfriend was stolen from her, and her business nearly failed. But she did not give up, which sends a positive message to today's generation of teens. Mako was not stolen from Asami he just chose Korra and everyone knows that thats what people wanted. As messed up as that sounds its the truth.
