AJC: Simpsons movie "isn't anything special"--D'Oh!

You're paying to see this movie? D'oh! | "The verdict: Not as bad as it could be, but certainly not as good as you want.

'The Simpsons Movie' hardly gets under way before Homer Simpson lobs a barb at those of us sitting out there in the dark.

'Everyone in this movie theater is a giant sucker,' he says. 'Especially you.'

The joke is that we will pay money to see a big-screen version of a TV show that can be had for free on the boob tube.

Homer's probably more right than anyone can imagine. 'The Simpsons Movie' isn't anything special and certainly not the creative spark necessary to jump-start what for years has been a sagging show. "
