Simpsons movie, coming to a theater near you? If this movie sucks, heads will roll.

My life will finally be complete. I hope it turns out well... I always mentioned this to friends and they said a Simpsons movie would be difficult to do... and that the 30 mins of wisdom and hilarity were so perfected... and hour and a half would be difficult.... we'll see

My brother and I think that this movie is a great idea, but we worry that the current crop of writers will be in charge. In such case, look out! It'll be craptacular.

We'd personally like to see the alums of Conan O'Brien's group write the movie. I think that's also the current consensus at the hyper-critical alt.tv.simpsons (of Comic Book Guy fame).

Less commercials, a Simpsons "half-hour" is 22 minutes; and after ten years and over 200 of those mini-movies, what do they have for a feature four-times that length? Is there a secret box full of ideas they could never do on TV? Will they be under pressure to avoid an R rating? Will the movie cannibalize interest from the series like "South Park" did? And when will the "comic book guy" show up just to say "Worst movie ever"? The first five minutes or the last thirty seconds? Just asking.

there shouldn't even be the chance for an R rating. If they added anything to make it close to that, it wouldn't really be the simpsons.

nothing will ever ruin the Simpsons. If the movie is shit (which it won't be, it will be at the least better than 90% of the other comedies out there) the Simpsons will still march on. I hope they keep making episodes forever.
