    So far, the critics are viewing it with moderate approval (83% on rotten tomatoes).

    Even though the series has slipped dramatically, I'm still pretty darn excited.

    Who is going to see it?

    (The pretzel episode was on last night. A classic)

    I'm hoping they have a midnight showing tonight. I've been waiting for this movie all summer (that's right, even more than Transformers, Spiderman and Harry Potter).

    Midnight showing in my neck of the woods, just called the wife and made plans to attend. This is the most anticipated movie for me in years.

    Look out! He is a Spider Pig! [/homer]

    I think we'll buy our tickets for tomorrow's first showing online tonight and then I'll get up and go pick them up in the morning. I don't know if the theater is going to open earlier than normal because it opens 30 minutes before the first showing, but I'm anticipating a line.

    Rest assured I went straight from the midnight showing to the Internet to register my pleasure throughout the world.

    That. Was. Awesome.

    If you like The Simpsons at all, you must see this. Hysterical from start to finish, and it earns its PG-13 rating in classic fashion.

    Awesome. $200 million blockbuster. Well worth the wait.

    This is going to be the first movie I see multiple times in a theatre since Pulp Fiction.

    Enough inside jokes to reward the longtime fans of the show yet enough standalone jokes to amuse those who are only casual fans.

    And I told myself I wouldn't throw a bunch of funny lines out there, but here's two:

    "I like men now!"
    "That could have been anyone's silo of pig crap!"
