The Simpsons Movie (2007)

It's easy to enjoy this animated movie if you're a fan of the Simpsons. The movie is an extended version of a show with an environmental twist. This is good for a time when you are looking for humor and easy viewing (maybe you need a break from subtitles).

I enjoy the background details in the Simpsons, among my favorites: when a character is performing or delivering a speech and his/her audience doesn't react; all you hear are crickets and perhaps a random cough.

The voices:

Dan Castellaneta: Homer, Grampa, Krusty, Groundskeeper Wile, Mayor Quimby, Itchy, Barney

Julie Cavner: Marge, Selma, Patty

Nancy Cartwright: Bart, Ralph Wiggum, Todd Flanders, Nelson

Yeardley Smith: Lisa (easy gig)

Hank Azaria: Moe, Chief Wiggum, Cletus, Professor Frink, Apu, Lou, Carl, Sea Captain, Bumblebee Man, Dr. Nick, Comic Book Guy,

Harry Shearer (hardest working man in animation): Mr. Burns, Smithers, Ned Flanders, Reverend Lovejoy, Lenny, Pres Arnold Schwartzenegger, Principal Skinner, Kent Brachman, Dr Hibbert, Otto

Pamela Hayden: Milhouse, Rod Flanders, Jimbo

Tress MacNeille: Mrs. Skinner, Nelson's mother
