The Simpsons Movie (2007)

Animation, Adventure, Comedy |

The Simpsons Movie is a American animated comedy film based on the popular long-running Fox animated television series The Simpsons (1989–present). The film was directed by David Silverman, and stars the regular television cast of Dan Castellaneta, Julie Kavner, Nancy Cartwright, Yeardley Smith, Hank Azaria, Harry Shearer, Tress MacNeille, Pamela Hayden, Russi Taylor, and Albert Brooks. The film follows Homer Simpson, who irresponsibly pollutes the lake in Springfield after the town has cleaned it up, causing the Environmental Protection Agency to imprison the town under a giant dome. After he and his family narrowly manage to escape, they ultimately abandon Homer for his selfishness and return to Springfield to prevent the town’s destruction by Russ Cargill, head of the EPA. Soon after his family leaves, Homer works to redeem his folly by returning to Springfield himself to help save the town and its citizens.

While performing on Lake Springfield, the band Green Day perishes when the lake’s pollution dissolves their barge. At their memorial, Grampa Simpson prophesies the destruction of the town, but only Marge Simpson takes this seriously. Later that day, Homer Simpson dares Bart to skateboard naked to Krusty Burger, but is caught by Chief Wiggum upon arriving, who then handcuffs him to a nearby lamppost. Bart promptly bonds with their neighbor Ned Flanders, who he decided was a better father because Homer refused to take responsibility for the incident, while Lisa and her new friend Colin convince the entire town to clean their lake.

Meanwhile, Homer rescues a pig from Krusty Burger. He stores its feces in a large silo until Marge tells him to safely dispose of the waste. Homer initially intends to take his silo to the waste management plant, but after Lenny calls to tell him that Lard Lad Donuts is giving away free donuts, Homer dumps the silo straight into the lake, which severely pollutes it. Moments later, a squirrel jumps into the lake who was chased by a raccoon and is mutated by the pollution. Flanders and Bart discover the creature before the EPA captures it. Russ Cargill, head of the EPA, presents five “unthinkable” options to U.S. President Arnold Schwarzenegger to keep the town’s pollution contained.
