According to BestSyndication.com, The Simpsons Movie took in $25 million last week. That’s down from the over $70 million it made the previous week. The Simpsons Movie is a summer blockbuster, folks.
And it’s easy to see why.
I enjoyed this movie, though I will admit that it seemed like a longer version of a regular episode. The characters and settings are drawn extraordinarily well and the movie has the look and feel of a “big time” cartoon production.
Just like South Park’s movie, I imagine that this will be a big DVD seller and that some goodies will be on the DVD. The plot to the movie is fun and simple – the lovable Homer goofs up again, breaks his daughter’s heart, and is forced to find a way to make it all better at the end of the movie.
If the movie is still in a theater near you, I suggest going to watch a matinee (or whatever the low-cost time period is for your local theater). As for the DVD – I think it’ll be a great rental for most and a great purchase of hardcore fans of The Simpsons.
