When Lisa Simpson tells the

stop Homer, who dumps a
pig-waste silo into the water.
Russ Cargill decides that 
Springfield is too dangerous
and places a dome over the
town, stopping anything from
getting in or out. When the
town people find out the true 
culprit behind the problem,
they set out off straight for the
Simpson's home. Escaping
from the dome, the Simpsons
decide to start a new life in
Alaska, whilst the remainder
of the town disappears.

Review
As a big fan of THE SIMPSONS, I must say that the movie adaptation was enjoyable but funny. The things of the film I find very remarkable which includes how its story would go explore some plot points that haven't been used in new episodes, a vocal cameo by Tom Hanks and the hilarious scenes such as the Spider Pig.

THE SIMPSONS MOVIE is extremely loyal to the animated television sitcom, full of Simpsonized humour that features Homer's antics and possibly the greatest movie adaptation of a TV show that has ever been made.

Star rating: (5/5) Best Movie Ever
