The Simpsons

i'm not a die hard fan of the simpsons, but i really want to go see the movie - which has been showing in kuwait since yesterday. we tried to watch it yesterday but the time slot we wanted was fully booked.

i checked out the entry on imdb and it has an amazing score of 9/10; the only movies with a better score are the shawshank redemption and the godfather (both 9.1).
not all episodes of the show are great, but no one can deny that it's a smart show in general, with many hidden puns and subliminal messages.

Some amusing facts about the simpsons:
  • It takes 6 - 8 months and costs about $1 mill. to make each simpson's episode
  • All the Simpson's characters voices are done by only seven people (homer, itchy, grandpa, krusty are all done by one person)
  • The Simpsons first aired in 1987 (20 years anniversary this year)
  • Milhouse's middle name is Mussolini
  • Homer's e-mail address is
  • Characters' full names: Lisa Marie Simpson, Bartholomew Jojo Simpson, and Homer Jay Simpson
