This Week in Film: July 27, 2007


The Simpsons Movie

BUZZ: I don't care what anybody says, I'm a Simpsons fan for life. The advance buzz on the movie version of this beloved, unending TV show about the misadventures of a yellow dysfunctional family has been -- with a sigh of relief -- immensely positive.

Much of the plot has been kept so top secret that the script had to be shredded after each voicing session by the actors. But regardless of what's known about the story, most critics have already suggested, we're in for a very, very special episode, ahem, an 87 minute episode of this venerable classic.

Oh, and word has it that Bart shows his wiener. It's a reminder that sometime before the brash of the brash of shows like South Park and Family Guy came into existence, the Simpsons were the edgiest slot on primetime circa early '90s.
